I'm really pulling for Palin.

I bet you are. I'm in the 'other' category (Mitch 'The Blade' Daniels).

I miss her particular brand of craziness.

I had a really sad feeling at her final, rambling press conference as governor that she might just fade away. Luckily I seem to be wrong.

Yeah, well I'm very thankful that you cannot vote in GOP primaries.

i think huckabee is scarier...the man doesn't believe in evolution...you'll probably be happy to know i can't vote in them either..

I'm not a big Huck fan. But some of his crazy ideas do scare me (like adding the 10 Commandments to the Constitution). I take comfort though knowing that, as Obama did, he will move to the center during the campaign if he ever hopes to get elected (i.e. if he learned anything from 2008), and he will not have the power or political capacity to enact some of his crazier ideas.

It's not very reassuring that only one of the top four candidates on that list has both moral standing and average level intelligence. (Sorry if I sound "elitist" but creationism = stupid)

Ayush Soni said...

And when I say moral standing, I mean general ethics

Lachlan said...

You mean your ethics.
