    There is also buzz that he may move to the Constitution Party. Or maybe even the Prohibition Party.

    Actually the buzz is this fellow is moving to the Green Party…

    What’s this “buzz”? Got any sources on this, or is it more like the kind of buzz you get from psychotropic substances?

    What a shocker! You mean a Democrat actually leaving the Democrat Party, with Obama’s approval numbers at an all-time low, Republicans about to sweep Governorships, House seats and even virtually all contested US Senate seats. And this guy goes Independent.

    I’m stunned!
