Woke up from a dream where I was at the Republican convention. The Libertarians were there for some reason (mostly ignored in a small side room, of course), and wanted to nominate Wendell the Manatee. When objections were raised because he was from another dimension, they instead nominated Irving the Moray Eel, who actually turned out to be a cuddly cobra wearing a snorkel.
Rand Paul and most of the libertarian-leaning Republican attendees threw their support behind Irving. When I asked why, Paul told me, "Of course we're supporting the eel. He's honest, principled, and doesn't have a chance at winning. If that isn't a libertarian, I don't know what is."
