According to my pal Micah Sifry, Ross Perot is considering a 2004 comeback — and it’s not good news for the Repubs:

But should we really just treat Ross as a bad joke? My read of his proposal is that he is serious about addressing the country’s economic problems, furious at the GOP’s irresponsible tax cuts and anxious to return to the national stage, possibly with some form of grass-roots movement by his side. For anyone who remembers how little respect Perot has shown for the Bush family over the years — not only did he break Poppy Bush’s hold on the White House, in 1994 he went out of his way to publicly endorse the Democratic gubernatorial opponents of both George W. in Texas and Jeb in Florida — there’s an intriguing subtext to all this: Ross may think that by launching this new effort in time for 2004 he can crack the Republican lock on power again, to stop the party’s “radical agenda” and prevent a “fiscal disaster.”
