Now It Begins

OK, it's over..., or is it. There is this lady in a pantsuit standing over in the corner saying, "It ain't over 'til I say it's over!" Now the only question seems too be, "What will it take to make her and her horrible hubby go away?"

Frankly, I don't care. For me it was pretty much over when Romney dropped out.

It will be nice to see the Clintons leave the national stage -- they ceased to amuse many, many years ago. But at least, as despicable as they and their toadies were, they had a shrewd appreciation of the reality of things. You knew that they knew the absurd things they were saying were nothing but rhetoric and when it came right down to it they would do something approximating the right thing.

Obama, though, inspires no such confidence. His radical rhetoric and past associations are deeply troubling. His wife, his church, and his most avid supporters are downright frightening.

We are in for some dark and disturbing times in the months, perhaps years ahead. The only thing to do is to rally behind our tired and uninspiring candidate and to fight the good fight for him while we wait for someone like Mitt or Sarah or Bobby to emerge as our standard bearer.

I'm with Jonah on this one:
I don't want to come together with anyone to remake this country. Improve this country? yeah. Fix some problems? Sure. But this country doesn't need "remaking."
