i’ll jump the shark

It is a good day to be a Liberal Democrat. Now before loyal Shadow Government readers think that we’ve completely jumped the shark, let me clarify: we are not throwing our lot in with the McGoverns, Dukakises, and Boxers of the world. Rather, it is a good day for the Liberal Democrats here in the U.K., a party generally unknown to Americans but which raised its profile in a big way with leader Nick Clegg’s performance in last night’s first-ever televised U.K. election debate.

Is preferring McGovern and Dukakis over their opponents (Richard Nixon and George Bush the First, lest we forget) really jumping the shark?
