Scholars & Rogues: 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?

Matt 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.
