Best they got

Dear Republicans, I know it’s early and all. But the people making noises to run on your ticket are unappealing.

Huckabee? Really. I’ll stay home. Don’t need the God Squad indoctrinating me at gun point.

Donald Trump? Uhm, here’s a guy who bankrupted a casino. A fucking casino. How do you do that?

Palin. Damaged goods. Sorry.

Newt: The best one, so far. But he’s tainted too.

Romney: May as well vote for Obama.

Work on it.

    I’d vote for Palin again.
    During her term,she gave all Alaskans a $1,200 stimulus check from Alaska’s own.

    Alaska..we got $10Billion in the state savings account.
    we stand to make 3rd of that this year.

    How many know why Palin actually quit? Not was the mainstream media says?

    “Read the full AP report, and you’ll note nowhere in the article does it mention the Alaska law allowing these complaints to be filed for just about any reason. There have been three additional complaints filed since Palin announced she was leaving office on July 3, and state taxpayers will have to pay thousands and thousands to answer charges.

    The state tab for covering the costs of complaints filed by both Republicans and Democrats is upwards of $2 million and the Palin family has more than $500,000 in legal bills.”

    $2Million. How many guns or how many gallons of gas (almost 9 at today’s prices) would that get?

    Dick Armey?

    I’d like to see The Fred run again. Palin is more valuable as flypaper for the Left.

    Newt is too impressed with his own intelligence.

    Steve Forbes?

    I have to look at my kids here. College educated middle class people in their 20’s and 30’s, perhaps a bit brighter and more successful than most, and folks listen to them.

    They would vote for someone like Pawlenty, but think Sarah, Newt, and Romney are ludicrous. I disagree about Sarah, and Newt has a great responsibility as the intellectual power behind the throne, but we’re losing an entire generation of basically apolitical, moderately libertarian (with a small l) people who thing unions are as silly as big government.

    It doesn’t matter that Pawlenty is at best a center-right politician. He doesn’t have any long term baggage, and could go with the conservative flow.

    Powell? A slight disconnect with reality there. A C student in a mediocre community college who finished dead last in OCS at Benning but got a markup with the “7.62 pencil” because of his race.

    A man who wrote himself a decoration for “helping a soldier out of a crashed helicopter before it burst into flames”, although it was only an autorotation with no fire at all.

    A soldier who never fired an angry shot, but who again wrote himself a purple heart for a pungi stick he supposedly stepped on during an inspection tour.

    A man whose only political comment while in uniform was a defense of taking from the rich to help the poor, and who went on record with the statement Schwartzkopf was wrong, and we should never invade Iraq, simpy quarentine them for 2 or 3 years.

    Considering that they were probably no more than 2 years away from an atomic bomb (Al Baradei’s estimate at the U.N.), it would have resulted in radioactive comtamination of much of the world’s oil production facilities as well as most of the U.S. military.

    The Republican equivalent of Barack Obama, an empty headed totem Peter-Principled well above his level of competence, which would be something like night manager of a McDonalds. I doubt he could handle the morning rush.

    So, since I got here by reading Tam’s blog mentioning Ron Paul (I kinda like his son Rand), I went to Wiki for a full reading on Paul Senior.

    Frighteningly, I agree with him on about 80% of everything he’s ever stated (the continual Wiki rewrite favors him this week), but I still think of him as an anti-semetic, isolationist butthead who jumps before he thinks. He’s also way too much in love with the idea of a third party, total suicide for America.

    Here in the U.S., we have at least the possibility of a well contested primary to allow the people to get a say. Create a third party and you hand the election to the Democrats, most of whom march in mindless lockstep behind anyone anointed by the party bosses.

    Create a fourth and fifth party and you get coalitions and ever shifting voting blocks like the Europeans, a certain guarantee of ever bigger government.

    An elephant is a mouse designed by a committee. Everyone wants his part to be bigger, and they get it if someone wants to keep the coalition alive.

    Even many of the things Paul has said that I agree with should never have seen the light of day, at least in public. Not now, and perhaps not for a long time.

    He strikes me as a socially clueless man who “keeps his own council”, to the point of venturing close to the line of rediculous.

    Again, we lose an entire generation of moderately conservative people just moving into their best earning years. Let Pawlenty move discretely to the right and start working the Gen.Xers with simple facts and figures showing them the misery they’re inheriting and watch the smiles on the Teabaggers faces come election day.
