Forget “Feel the Bern.” Do you “Feel the Johnson”? As in Gary Johnson, the Libertarian Party candidate for president? The Johnson-Weld ticket is the most serious ticket the Libertarian Party has ever nominated, which to be sure is like being the tallest building in Wichita, but still, if ever the Libertarian ticket might actually contend it is this year.
I’ve been saying for a while that if Johnson, who can be goofy and unserious sometimes, mounted a real campaign he might actually make it. Would they put up some good TV ads? We’ll see, but this two-minute spot is pretty effective I think. Will get they it on the air in enough places? Will they make the debates in the fall, and if so come across as they do here?
