In Texas, a former GOP state representative called the Libertarian candidates in close races to ask them to drop out. She didn't want them taking votes from the Republicans. The subtext there, of course, being that these were votes the Republicans had rightly earned.
Wow. Arrogant and desperate at the same time. That is impressive.
I can't say I entirely blame them. I mean, if Obama loses to McCain by a Nader-sized margin, I'm gonna be pretty pissed. But asking the candidates to drop out? And being caught at it? Isn't that like pretty much admitting you're gaming the system?
