I do not believe you’re going to teach anyone a “lesson” by sitting this one out or writing in Fred Thompson or Sunny Lucas. I believe that way too many people are ignoring the forest for the trees and that in doing so, they’re going to have a hand in electing Obama. Some say that’s fine because if the country’s going to be “ruined”, better that it’s ruined by a Democrat, and somehow magically we’ll come up with a fantastic, “real” conservative in 4 years even though there is no one like that on the horizon and everyone knows it. Like I said, I think that’s a super-crappy plan.
And when you consider that there’s a war on, it’s becomes even crappier, if that’s possible. I’m a pretty conservative guy and I disagree with McCain on plenty of things. The crybaby contingent of Republicans, who prefer to “punish” the country because they can’t re-elect the ghost of Ronald Reagan, are really getting on my nerves. They have elevated their own base self-interest and petty squabbles above the needs of the country, and for members of the party that that is unforgivable.
