John Fredericks: 'Wouldn't it be fun to just have a regular primary....?'

I got a laugh reading John Fredericks this morning:
Wouldn't it be fun to just have a regular primary where you show up at the polls and vote for the candidate of your choice?

And your nominee has to prove they can wage an effective campaign against the NOVA Democrats in November -- and not just sign up 130 activists, buy 50 campaign signs at Kinkos and make a speech where you say "Constitution" every fourth word and "Liberty" 170 times?
Yep. Because these days it seems all you have to do is give a barn-burner speech, whip the crowd into a frenzy with the before-mentioned words, and  -- voila! -- you're nominated.

With those standards, we never would have had Winston Churchill.
