The Horror Is Getting To Matt Taibbi

Rolling Stone's Matt Taibbi (if you haven't read his The Year of the Rat, do so, it's absolutely hilarious reading) sat down with Scholars & Rogues' Mike Sheehan on the state of politics:

S&R: Steve Rosenbaum wrote recently in The Huffington Post that Jon Stewart "isn't funny anymore," meaning that the joke of the Bush years is on us and Democrats can't and won't do jack to change things. Your recent RS piece ‘The War Party‘ blasted the GOP presidential candidates as "fourth-rate buffoons." Is this a good time for a major third party to formulate?

Taibbi: There's never been a better time. Both mainstream parties are looking likely to nominate deeply flawed candidates. If the race comes down to Hillary and Giuliani, the Green Party could nominate Big Bird and win 28% of the vote. And a third party is definitely needed, since the Democrats have become captives of the money wing of their party.

Can you help us out?
