RSS Feed of the RTP (Random Time Period)

As we close in on election day, many folks will be watching with bated breath to see whether less-than-inspiring aristocrat John Kerry can overthrow the truly moronic fascist George Bush (no bias here!). The electoral-vote site has an RSS feed which lets you quickly view how their predictions steadily decline towards W. Unfortunately, no one seems to have an answer for why we haven't had a good option for president in years. Maybe, instead of an election, we should institute a Presidential draft since, as Douglas Adams posits,
those people who must want to rule people are, ipso facto, those least suited to do it... anyone who is capable of getting themselves made President should on no account be allowed to do the job.
Oh, wait a minute. Is that what we already have? Is W just a right-wing nutjob version of Zaphod Beeblebrox? Was the war in Iraq his Heart of Gold? If so, someone certainly screwed up when they picked the real power -- more of an Emperor Palpatine than the wise man of Adam's Galaxy. Oh well. Where's Han Solo when you need him?
