So when political science Professor Kenneth Janda asked if he could write a column making a more academic comparison (instead of just hurling insults), I thought it'd be a great idea.
On Monday the countdown began - four days until Friday, three days, and so on. At the age of 27, being this unfulfilled was no way to live and so I did what they tell you never to do. I quit. And here's why.

A Brooklynite turned "back-to-the-land" Vermont socialist who honeymooned in the Soviet Union and has far less executive experience than Sarah Palin vs. a fact-free braying bully boy billionaire real estate and gambling mogul bizarrely backed by evangelicals would be crazy enough.
