I was doing laundry and found myself reading the letters to the editor at USA Today, and came across this gem:
Wanted: God-fearing man
Rev. Kort Greene Jr. – Scottsville, Va.
I’m constantly being asked who I’m voting for or who I want to win the Democratic nomination. Many automatically assume that because I am an African-American I will vote Democrat — not!
I supported Mike Huckabee, not simply because he is a Republican but because he is a man of integrity and stands for godly principle. This is more than I can say about either of the Democratic candidates. They have so much in common and so many reasons why I could not in good conscience vote for either.
The only good thing I see about the Democratic campaigns is we are finding out how inept these candidates are, which is a plus for the Republicans.
Let’s pray that God will intervene and give us an honest, God-fearing man to run this country.
I read that and my first thought was that if McCain wins, it is profoundly unfair that I have to go down with the ship with this idiot, and then I immediately realized what it must have been like for the people who hated Bush all along, knew he would be a disaster, and had to sit around and suffer while jackasses like me voted for the guy they wanted to have a beer with or voted for Bush because they didn’t really “trust” John Kerry.
I guess that is the most depressing part of the Gas Tax nonsense below. Now that everyone on the planet is criticizing the McCain-Clinton plan, even Paul Krugman, grudgingly, the Clinton campaign will feel the need to respond. McCain of course, won’t, because he is a Republican, and Republicans don’t have to explain themselves when they say stupid things. They just say them, accuse the opposition of being weak or soft on terror and then move on to some other disastrously stupid statement.
Clinton, on the other hand, will feel the need to defend herself (Clintons only have two modes- attack and bunker mentality), and we will undoubtedly be treated to the spectacle of Clinton surrogates going on television spreading nonsense about how the gas tax holiday really will help blue collar voters, further dumbing down an already moronic electorate.
