Convincing BRTD to drop the Sneakers O'Toole BS is like convincing Sneakers O'Toole to take his sneakers off.

(I realize I'm probably just further encouraging him by saying that, and for this I apologize.)

Clearly the solution is to privatize presidential elections.

The idea of parodying the preceding Atlasian's postings is laughable, of course, but not for reasons one might expect.

I thought I was the only one on the forum to pick Bush out of the Information Era presidents...and now 2 people join me!

(and one of them, Republitarian, is exactly the same as me in all of the choices)

The "Information Era presidents" category is probably the worst one. All three were/are absolutely horrendous presidents.

We've had a succession of awful presidents ever since Coolidge, with only a few that just barely edge into positive for me (Ike, Carter, and Reagan).  Gerald Ford and Clinton did not have totally awful presidencies, but that was mainly due to the short timespan in the case of the first and the hostile Congress in the case of the second.
