HuffPo Diarist Discovers Modern Whig Party

From the Huffington Post:

Taegan Goddard posted an item yesterday titled "Whig Party Revived", detailing how Steven Gerritzen, "a 39-year-old 'electronics assembler,'" was bringing the party back in order to run against Representative Alan Grayson (D-Fla.) in the 2010 election.

Immediately, I thought to myself, "Terrific! There just isn't enough vocal opposition to the policies of President Andrew Jackson these days!" But in fact, Gerritzen is running as a candidate for the Florida Whig Party, which turns out to be like a "Tea Party" for calm and approachable moderates who don't mind Scandinavia. He's one of five candidates who will be doing to in 2010.
