The GOP Debate

A Bunch of Grandpa Simpsons...

I watched a rerun of the GOP Presidential debate last night and all I can say is what a sorry crop of candidates it is. I found the messianic debut of Fred Thompson underwhelming and thought he was looking physically ill. Ron Paul got in some good sound bites and I was surprised that I found myself rooting for a sometimes sympathetic Mike Huckabee (I know!), but thought the whole bunch sounded like five or six Grandpa Simpsons. McCain was especially wooden and pathetic.

The worst part of it, was the Hillary baiting and the reflexive arguments that any democrat candidate will grow the federal government, spend more money, and subjugate me to the state. Really?

I mean under the current administration, with the acquiescence of Congress, the President has the authority to strip me of my constitutional protections, lock me away, subject me to 'enhanced interrogation techniques' perfected by the likes of Stalin and the Khmer Rogue (but it's not torture!) deny me access to the courts and an attorney. But I should be afraid that the recently vetoed health insurance program for kids is a slide into socialism? I'm also told that I should be outraged by the budget busting $6 billion per year for a program while this same cadre is well on its way to spending $1 TRILLION dollars on a war that was supposed to pay for itself?

They don't get it, the party doesn't get it and the need some time in the wilderness to figure it out if you ask me. Of course the only thing that can save them and the party is Hillary and it looks the the GOP, the media and the Dems are doing everything they can to ensure that she's the nominee. I've had eight years of divisiveness, I don't want another four.
