RON PAUL - BUH BYE!
By any objective measure, Ron Paul "jumped the shark" during the debate last night. He is a completely unredeemable moonbat and seems to be PROUD of it.
In addition, John McCain looked worn out and old and seemed to just ride the same old hobby horses. If John McCain does for national defense or border security what he has done for campaign finance reform, in the immortal words of Tony Soprano "fuhgedaboutit"! The ship has sailed on your presidential ambitions, Senator McCain. Your service to our nation has been immense and we are grateful. But enough already! You are no longer a viable candidate.
I am a Roman Catholic and thus, without apologies, completely anti-abortion. That being said, I find myself thinking that (assuming a more attractive alternative doesn't present itself - Fred Thompson, for example), for reasons of national defense and security, Republicans might need to bite the bullet and go with someone who is not their perfect dream of conservatism.
Here's the deal all you conservatives out there. I'm slightly to the right of Attila the Hun and, in a perfect world, Rudy or Mitt are not my dream candidates. On the other hand, is Duncan Hunter electable? Is Tom Tancredo? So electability is the key here and I'm not willing to bite off my nation's safety to spite my face. We are already seeing how well that worked out in the 2006 election, aren't we!
