The other night I was watching a pretty interesting documentary on PBS about the senior Bush. With all his flaws, I like him much better than his predecessor. Compared to Reagan Bush was close to a pseudo-dove on at least some matters. The result obviously was that he ended up alienating the right, who then played into the hands of Pat Buchanan. When Bush lost the 92 election, many of his advisors said that he did not lose because Clinton won; he lost because Buchanan stole it from him by turning the right against him.

Kind of reminds you of how Nader stole the 2000 election, and how he may do it again. Now if only someone like that would materialize against John McCain in this election, especially when the situation is similar and he is no friend of his party's conservatives...

Yes, we need you more than ever, Mike Huckabee. You are the sole hope for this country. By stealing the election from McCain you will be doing everyone a favor. Come on, you yourself quipped when you lost in the primaries that God has a higher purpose for you. God reveals his purposes through history. So be the chosen one, stand up against McCain and fulfill God's purpose. I am even prepared to stop believing in evolution for a couple of days in November just for you.

I actually like Mccain. I may even root for him if Hillary turns out to be the democratic nominee. However, I am starting to have my doubts about Obama as well after finding out that he was hiding a loony in his closet. I guess I will only decide after watching a few of the Obama-Mccain debates. In all fairness, it must be said that Mccain is the best possible presidential candidate for the republicans.

I think the Obama pastor story was used too much against him. It does not seem that there were any major signs of his craziness before. It seems to me that at most Obama treated him as one of those annoying and loony uncles who has given you some good advice and support before. In fact with his recent completely crazed rants, the pastor did Obama a favor and helped him disown him easily.

There is at least one potential competitor for McCain's votes, the libertarian Bob Barr. :)

I think Wright(who is clearly an egoist) did have some sort of cause for his angry ranting, which McCain supporters like John Hagee and Rid Parsley do not have. Wright lived through the civil rights struggle after all.
