Frankenstein in 2012

I'd really like a "build the nominee" kit. I want to take parts of Obama, Gingrich, Paul, and Romney and build a strong, humane candidate who understands both how government and the private sector function.

While I'm at it, I'll build a senator or ten, using Scott Brown (the most recent senator from Massachusetts), Ted Kennedy, Orrin Hatch (no, really), and Lyndon Johnson (no, really) for basic building blocks.

The Representatives to Congress are supposed to basically dance as the electorate commands (unlike the Chief Executive, and the Senators, whose offices were designed to have the ability to exercise insight and the long view), so I'll not do anything there. In the case of the House, people get the representation they deserve, either because they voted for an idiot or because they couldn't be bothered to vote at all.

Yeah, I'll get right on that. Assuming I finish my Tardis in time.

I don't suppose you would consider replacing Ted Kennedy with Daniel P Moynihan, would you?

Hmmm. Well, given that their principles are consonant, and Pat was somewhat less polarizing than Ted, sure!

And quite the speaker. I remember him rambling one day, and I thought he had lost it. Then he came put with one of the most brilliant statements ever. He always had my vote.

I'm telling you...neo-monarchy. Look at all the great things that came from the monachries: The Renaissance, the Age of Enlightment, learning, art, science.

Put the Queen on the throne, the peasants back in the fields, and the military as the backbone of a new aristocracy.

I don't want much, just a small county or duchy and a few serving wenches to ease my dotage. ;)
