Getting the Nerd Vote
While reading a blog entry on nerdy political activism (left-wing edition), I wondered what each party's Presidential campaign could do to get the nerd vote.
The Republicans could:
- Go nuclear. Challenging the Democrats to defend delays in opening nuclear depositories when there was a clear precedent in the Pre-Cambrian could erase the meme of a “Republican War on Science.” While they're at it, they could also challenge the arithmetic of people who measure nuclear costs by total amount spent since the technology was invented and wind costs by cost per day per household.
- Promise to put through a law restricting eugenic abortions to take effect as soon as there's a prenatal test for Asperger's syndrome.
Meanwhile the Democrats could:
- Replace the lame Lobbyists for McCain attempt at satire with “Schoolyard bullies for McCain.”
- Promise to put Lawrence Lessig on the Supreme Court.
