I was reading Sam Stein’s article on Huffington Post about Mitt “The Quit” Romney dropping out of the race. I’m sure you’ve all heard about some right wingers going into seizures over the prospect of a McCain presidency, but Stein’s account of Romney’s announcement at CPAC was insane. I was supressing giggles throughout the whole thing, but I had to guffaw at the end.
“It is like now I have to choose between the left and the radical left,” said Jeffrey Goldberg, a Michigan Republican and Romney supporter. “John McCain’s appearance here will be like David Duke going before the NAACP.”
Oh … My … GOD! Do these people know what hyperbole means? I know that McCain hasn’t traditionally backed the complete right wing agenda, but he’s against abortion and for the war. What the hell is wrong with you people? I mean, go ahead, freak out because it makes things better for the Democrats, but seriously? Do these folks actually want us Socialist, Tax-n-Spend, Negro-loving, war-surrendering, Gay sex having Commies to take over? My God. Don’t they realize that if Obama takes the White House someone might start suggesting that high school students use condoms as opposed to having sex without condoms? That if the Clintons rule once again we may not go to war with Iran?
I’m pretty sure that most of these political heretics will get their shit together and vote for McCain in the long run. I know there will be those who can’t let shit go. But with all this ridiculousness it’s like they have the opposite problem of what the Democrats have where the people are happy with their candidates, but the front runners are trying to bust-a-cap in one another’s asses.
But hey! Why not have both political parties implode together? It’ll be fun.
