The final word on the coming elections
Give me the big-spenders who support our troops over the big-spenders who slander them any day.
I'm voting Republican.
For those of us not particularly enamoured of the Republican contenders this time around, the past few weeks of mulling over the consequences of staying home from the polls or voting for Democrats or third-party candidates has finally driven home a reluctant truth: the Republicans (i.e. a Republican House and Senate) are the lesser of two evils. Thanks, John Kerry, for winding up the pre-election discussions in such a neat fashion. And thanks, Boortz, for pointing out some of the lovely surprises (like "imputed income taxes") the Democrats have up their sleeves.
Now, we can please hear more, much more, from the Democrats in the weeks and months to come? I want to hear everything Ted Kennedy has to say on many, many subjects, and everything Charlie Rangel, John Conyers, John Murtha, Hillary Clinton, and Nancy Pelosi have to say too. Let's give them lots of air time and media scrutiny along with face-to-face interviews on talk radio and complete blog coverage, and so everybody can finally really find out what's on their minds. If John Kerry was just revealing the tip of the Democrat worldview iceberg, I'm fascinated to see what else would come floating up.
In the meantime, here are some men who know how to deliver a good joke. And this one knows how to deconstruct a bad one (via Instapundit).
