Seek spoilers even in China

Meet Lily Tang Williams. Haven't heard the name? Well, she's polling 1% of the vote here so apparently that means she belongs on the same stage as the incumbent Democrat and the convention-sweeping Republican.

Williams is running on the so-called "Libertarian" ticket, currently headed by strident antilibertarians William Weld and Gary Johnson. She wasn't born in Colorado; she wasn't even born in this country. (Disclosure: neither was I; but you don't see me demanding that podium.)

There is no way Williams got there on her own, and there is no route for anybody from a 1% base to an electoral plurality. There are lots of people who want her on the ballot, though. Hint: not libertarians.
