Tonight’s Debate

Well, I caught the last half-hour or so of the debate this evening and I have to say I dislike McCain even more now than I did before. First off, he just looks old, I mean real old; nasty old, the kind of old man who lives on your street muttering to himself and slipping razor blades into the apples he gives out on Halloween kind of old. And his constant default position anytime he’s questioned – I served in Vietnam! – gets pretty tiring. He’s a nasty bitter old crank who wants to do away with border security and the First Amendment. Someone explain to me please how he has an (R) next to his name? And believe me, if he is the nominee the MSM will suddenly discover the Keating Five and all his temper tantrums; they can’t wait for him to get it.
Romney improved in my view. He had a cool demeanor and reasoned responses to McCain’s whining. i only wish he had really attacked him.
Huckabee is one smooth talking snake oil salesman, that’s for sure. I really truly dislike how he has so closely tied his religious beliefs to how he claims he will govern, but he is certainly the best speaker on that stage.
Ron Paul is, well, he really is there solely for his entertainment value. Bring back the Gold Standard! End all foreign policy!
Anyhow, there’s a lot more interesting stuff at Hot Air.

    If you think that Ron Paul’s idea of having sound money via the golsd standard is not sound economic policy, than you are either lying or an ignoramous.
    Godspeed Ron Paul!

    What is the “golsd standard”? And am I an “ignoramous” [sic] for not knowing?

  4. Mr. Bingley says:

    It sounds vaguely scandinavian…”Ingmar, did you catch any golsd in the fjord today, hmmm?”

  5. Sven says:

    You betcha there, Bingley. The golsd are running!. Even dat ignoramous Ole got some.
    And stop calling me Ingmar.

  6. The golsd must be angry!
    Aren’t McCain’s Vietnam references starting to remind you of the campaign of his good friend John F. Kerry, who, BTW served in Vietnam?
    I am an evangelical and Huckabee bugs me. I’m sure that he loves Jesus, but that doesn’t qualify him to be president or an air conditioning service tech.
    Scuttlebutt is that Huck is hanging on to peel social conservative votes from Romney in hopes of becoming McCain’s VEEP. Of course, McCain’s probably teasing Rudy and Crist with the same offer.

  7. Sven vonce bit hisself a mØØse, I have on goodska ahtority, vich is vie he spreads duh ugly rumoursk.
    Lutefisk for VP!

    Amazing – it only took eight minutes to draw a Ronulan from hiding. He didn’t exactly describe HOW the Gold Standard was sound policy, did he? I had my eyes firmly shut to keep from turning to stone.
    In his defense, however, he thinks we don’t need a foreign policy because there are no such things as foreigners. (On a related note, he thinks that Journey sings “Cold as Ice.”)
