Andrew Yang is announcing a new political party formed by the joining with two Republican has-beens that will be half Simpson and a third Bowles:

On guns, for instance, most Americans don’t agree with calls from the far left to confiscate all guns and repeal the Second Amendment, but they’re also rightfully worried by the far right’s insistence on eliminating gun laws. On climate change, most Americans don’t agree with calls from the far left to completely upend our economy and way of life, but they also reject the far right’s denial that there is even a problem. On abortion, most Americans don’t agree with the far left’s extreme views on late-term abortions, but they also are alarmed by the far right’s quest to make a woman’s choice a criminal offense.

Every single Unity ’08 ’12 ’16 ’20 ’24 op-ed uses this framework: compare some unpopular fringe left-wing position held by virtually no Democratic legislators with an unpopular position Republicans on the Supreme Court think is required by the Constitution, and conclude that both parties are equally radical. (Remember how every six months Tom Friedman would write a column wondering why no political party in America was willing to offer Barack Obama’s agenda to the voters?)

And now, for people feeling nostalgic for Ralph Nader’s favorite non-sequiturs, here you go!

Some call third parties “spoilers,” but the system is already spoiled.

CHECKMATE LIBS! Please support our vanity ratfucking campaign to put more Republicans in office in exchange for absolutely nothing.
