I just finished watching the GOP debate is New Hampshire. Matthew has been preaching the ickiness of Huckabee to me for some time and I must admit, I am now on the same page. Huckabee is Ickabee. There is something about him that just strikes me as disingenuous and unctuous. Sure, I would take him over any of the democrats because of the life issues, however on everything else, I am not sure he is really that different from the Democrats. I continue to like Fred (click here to see why), but I know that he is dead in the water. Forget Giuliani. McCain is my second choice at this point because I just have to much disappointing history with him and I believe he wants to be liked by the press too much. I think that because of that fact we might very well end up with more Souters and Kennedys on the court. Much to my shock, I think I am lining up in the Mitt camp. Yes, Mitt. The Mormon. I think that because he has come 180 degrees on the life issues, there is no going back for him. He is all in on this issue. Politics does indeed make strange bedfellows.
I don’t have much to say about the Democrats, except for…well. Obama? Really? They couldn’t be that….could they? Obama? Matthew doesn’t want me to write about this because he is afraid I may jinx it but, Obama? They will stop this Obama bus before it drives off the cliff, won’t they?
I have to think that if the Democrat party actually nominates Obama, that the next day Democrats who actually thought they might win in 2008 will be yelling at the television a la Charlton Heston in Planet of the Apes. “Finally, you really did it! YOU MANIACS! YOU BLEW IT !! DAMN YOU! DAMN YOU ALL TO HELL!!!'”
