Post Super Tuesday Rant

A lot of conservatives are complaining right now that McCain isn't what they want. Well, who do you want? I don't see much enthusiasm for Romney. I do see some enthusiasm for Huckabee, but it's coming from the evangelical side - and you'll note that they aren't threatening to take their ball and go home if their man isn't nominated. I see nothing productive coming from the self-proclaimed "conservative base" - just complaints and threats that they'll hold their breath until the whole country turns blue if they don't get their way.

Well, what is your way? Who do you want? Obviously there wasn't enough support for Thompson, who was my first choice, or he'd still be in this thing, nor was there enough for the other names that got tossed around like Tom Tancredo and Duncan Hunter. Right now your choice is McCain, Romney, or Huckabee. Pick one, and quit whining. Hold your nose if you must, but support the Republican nominee when the primary season is over, whoever he is, because the alternative is the genial smiling socialism of Barack Obama or the hard-nosed sneering socialism of Hillary Clinton. It's going to be damned hard to hold off the Democrats in the fall no matter what combination is on the ballot, and the last thing we need is for one faction of the party to cast us all into the wilderness.

And guess what? It's a big tent. The evangelicals are not always going to get their way. The hardliners are not always going to get their way. The moderates are not always going to get their way. But not a single one of us is going to get our way if we lose this election. Good grief, people, do you hear what you're saying? You are saying that you would prefer to have Clinton or Obama in the White House than John McCain.

That way lies madness, madness and socialism. Thank you, I will have none.

Well, yes, as a matter of fact, I would. :)
