Ducan Hunter blew my mind. Seriously.
He’s the guy with the best conservative cred, and the conservative base abandoned him and flocked to Rudy, Mitt, McCain and Huckabee. I was a bit confused, then my head exploded when Hunter endorsed Huckabee. Seriously. I was shell-shocked for about two days.
Duncan.. Huckabee? Why? I could understand Rudy, or Mitt, or McCain– but Huck? My guess is Huck offered him VP and Duncan thought he could have a meaningful impact on policy in a Cheneyesque manner. To have Hunter as President of the Senate would be awesome. You listening, Mitt? John?
So, I had to regroup. Then McCain started winning. The Maverick was on the loose. And my head exploded again.
Yes, two explosions. But it still works. It must be American made!
So, we’ll see how Super Tuesday fares. I’m feeling a McCain vicotry, and I’m dreading it. If McCain locks up the nomination today, the head won’t explode, but I’m going to have to actively work against McCain.
We should elect a Democrat. Bring on Hillary. Bring on Obama. We need to have 4-8 years of meandering bollocks policy. Seriously. America needs to remember why we don’t elect Democrats any more. The last thing we need is President McCain reminding the people of the country why we don’t like electing Republicans. We need to be able to point at the past and say, “We did things your way. See what happened to the country?” We need people to flock to the polls, overwhelmingly elect a Hillary or an Obama and have them enact 8 years of the worst legislation ever. We need to dispel the myth that people should vote for a race of a gender because it would be historic. We need 8 years of boneheaded leadership that puts Bush’s leadership to shame.
For that reason, I’m endorsing any Democrat for President this year. Please, enter office. Get out a plan for Universal Health Care. Pull us out of Iraq and instead put us into Darfur. Enact sweeping Global Warming legislation. Do it all! DO IT ALL, GUYS! Don’t let any stone go unturned. Show us how a good Liberal runs the country, and do it 100%.
That was the problem with Bill Clinton. In 1994, he figured out that everything he was doing caused a Republican backlash that cost him the House, and later, the Senate. I don’t think Hillary or Obama have that self-editing power. They’ll roll on with their mismanagement, and there will be a revolution. And hopefully we’ll be able to send Code Pink, MoveOn.org, DailyKos, CAIR, and everyone else on a quick trip to nowhere.
Then, in 2012 or 2016, Duncan Hunter can run again, or some other conservative (me!), and start reducing the National Debt, fixing Social Security, cutting pork, reducing the size of government, and getting America out of the hole its dug itself for the past 50 years.
