Campaign slogan

Kim DuToit may have a campaign slogan I can get behind. If you want some goodies to support Kim's gun-totin' lifestyle, go buy yourself a coffee mug or a bumper sticker. Tell him Army of Mom sent ya, ya hear?

I'm still trying to make up my mind what I want to do in the primaries on March 4. In Texas, you can vote in either primary. I'm just trying to decide if the local elections are important enough to me NOT to go vote in the Democratic primaries. I want to pick the opponent I dislike least to run against the choice thrust upon me by the Republican party. Long ago when I was a registered Democrat living in a very conservative West Texas oil town, I had to vote in the Republican primaries to have my vote register as Democrats seldom even ran. The races were truly held in the primaries. I may have to do that again. I just don't know what to do right now.

    Come on now, AoM. I know you liked Fred Thompson; so did I.

    But you KNOW that this country will be safer, and a hell of a lot better off, with a President McCain than with either a President Obama or (holy crap, my sphincter tightens involuntarily just typing the words) President Hillary Clinton.

    On the other hand, at this point, go ahead and vote for Hillary, because if she wins Texas and/or Ohio, she won't concede; it'll go down to the Convention, the Dems will self-destruct in Denver, Hillary and Bill will pull every filthy, nasty alley-fighting trick in the book to steal the nomination, and McCain will kick her ass 60-40 or better on Nov. 4.

    I was a big-time Fred Thompson supporter and still wish he was in the race.

    I'll likely vote for McCain. I'm REALLY hoping he'll pull Thompson in for VP. Maybe even Romney would be a good choice.

    I'm just banking on helping pick a Dem that I could live with more than the other if the Dems were to win. Does that make sense?

    No idea whether she'd take it, but could conservatives live with Vice President Condoleezza Rice?

    Youthful, arguably quite qualified to step in (a significant factor given McCain's age), and could at least marginally neutralize Obama. Downside, of course, is that she's inextricably tied to "Bush's war."

    Given Obama vs. Hillary, I can't really wrap my head around the concept of "a Dem I could live with.

    Hillary Clinton makes Machiavelli look like a second-grader. I can't think of a more deceitful, power-hungry, vindictive, all-about-me presidential candidate since . . . well, since her husband.

    Barack Obama is, by all accounts, a highly-intelligent, decent man of character.

    Thing is, so was Eugene V. Debs. The problem is that they're both unabashed Socialists who think the American capitalist economic system is basically inherently evil.

    Nope, I can't live with either Democrat.

    I think most of us would love Condi as VP, but I don't think she'd take it.

    Please God, in the name of all that's good, decent, and sacred, please don't let the Clintons back into the White House again. I don't like Obama either because he can't stick with a campaign slogan for longer than a day. My name's Dustin Jolley.

    Let's all try to parish the thought of the Democrats ever getting back into the White House.

    AoM - either way you go is gonna leave you totally unsatisfied. But like I tell my kids, if you don't have someone you particularly like, pick the one that you like least and vote against 'em.

    BTW - let's get a Condi for Veep grassroots campaign going. The only thing she promised was that she wouldn't go after the Presidency. She'd be far and away the best, most qualified person in the race, and it would be worth it just to watch Jess, Rev Al and the rest go apoplectic that the Reps beat them to the minority woman candidate, even if for number 2.

    you know, Condi for Veep on the McCain ticket would be a very interesting move.

    Because it is looking like Obama's presidency to lose at this point.


    Isn't it wild that Texas finally has a primary that means something :D
