Ha Ha Huckabee, and Ho Ho Hillary
More words of wisdom from Ann Althouse:
I don't see myself as the candidate-endorsing sort of blogger.Nor do I.
However, sometimes I see myself as the opposite of the candidate-endorsing sort of blogger.
My problem is that I just want the Republicans to come up with someone who can beat Hillary (or, for that matter, Obama). And instead of doing that, they seem hell-bent to come up with Huckabee.
While it's hardly an endorsement, I did contribute money to Giuliani, and more recently, I contributed to Fred Thompson, whose federalism I find refreshing. But if they can't beat Huckabee, how the hell are they going to beat Hillary?
I guess I'm beginning to hear my Christmas prayer in all of this.
Dear God, please don't let it be Huckabee versus Hillary.
For starters, that would be an alliterative abomination.
(Well, at least it's not an Onomatopoetic Obamanation...)
Anyway, after considering the election horrors, Bert Prelutsky has nominated Santa Claus:
Old Saint Nick goes around bestowing gifts on those who haven't worked for them, just like the Democrats, who do the same for the chronically unemployed and illegal aliens. And just as the little people do all the heavy lifting for Santa, the Democrats have their own set of elves; namely the middle-class taxpayers. Furthermore, Santa is obviously a liberal. Even though he, himself, only works one day a year, he thinks he's entitled to decide who's naughty and who's nice.Hmmm...
Maybe I should rethink my policy of no endorsements....
AFTERTHOUGHT: I try to be fair about these things, and I don't like to put people down because of their physical appearance. But the fact is, we live in a cruel and superficial, appearance-based world, so a question necessarily arises.
Does this guy really have the necessary sex appeal it would take to win?
