One reason I'm glad the election isn't being held today

(Via Instapundit) I see that a "Poll shows Scott Brown could top Obama in Prez run"
A Newsmax/Zogby poll shows the Massachusetts Republican within striking range of Obama in a hypothetical presidential matchup.
The poll shows the pair statistically deadlocked if the presidential election were held today.

The GOP needs to seriously get a grip.  Brownie has only done one thing in national politics: win a special election for a famous Senate seat.  And he only did that because the national attention on Kennedy's seat lead to a great fund raising weekend for Brown, which, when added to his challenger's gaffes, lead to his come-from-behind victory.

I hate it when liberals play personality politics, and it's even more unbecoming when it's done by conservatives.  I believe the last time a Senator spent two years in Congress before making a run for the presidency, it was said by conservatives that he was too inexperienced to be president.  And, while I agree that that person ended up not being experienced enough for the job, how the hell is a person with zero experience going to do a better job?  How about we let the guy spend a full term or two as a Senator before we deem him the savior of the party?

Also, I swear I'll vote for Ralph Nadar in the next election if the Republican's platform is "Anybody but Obama".  Just saying.
