I'm all for small government. The government that governs best, yadda yadda. I have even flirted with the idea Andrew Sullivan puts forth about embracing gridlock. I have seriously considered voting for Senator Kerry for just this reason. Having a Democrat in the White House would force Republicans in Congress to start acting like Republicans again.
Too bad this decision is coming at a time when I want the government to be doing something, ie killing terrorists. At any other time, John "Debating Society of One" Kerry would be my ideal choice.
