Six months ago, Romney was pretty much the guy. You could still hear rumblings about Sarah Palin, but by April, it started to crystallize that she is sitting this one out.
In June and July, Bachmann came on strong.
Then Perry came onto the scene.
Then everybody started beating up on Perry.
Now that we’ve passed the third debate, I am still undecided, but I’m leaning…. Here’s how the conversation in my head evolved:
Romney is my guy, but I really prefer Bachmann ideologically. And that stupid RomneyCare – good Lord, that is ridiculous, and don’t try and pull that federalism shit on me, Mitt. Ron Paul is intriguing…make that an interesting case…to study…as in maybe an x-file. Yeah, forget that. Oh! Perry is running? Sweet. Perry it is. Oh, wait, Perry is soft on illegals and picks up a nickname: Rick “you’re mean if you don’t give in-state tuition to illegals” Perry. Sigh. Wait, what’s this…999? Cool. Nahh, Cain is kind of an amusement park attraction. Alright, what the heck am I thinking, we have a great candidate, her name is Michele Bachmann. She gets it. Totally, Okay, she’s my guy. Well, you know what I mean.
So, I am tilting Michele Bachmann.
Krauthammer is brilliant. He really is. But this business of choosing people based on getting a warm body with an (R) next to their name is what has gotten us into the problem we’re in now.
Now is not the time for the establishment jackasses (sorry, Charlie) to lead the way.
It’s about time we got behind the ONLY candidate with the proper bona fides: Michele Bachmann.
There. I said it.
As for Krauthammer, you’d think that with such a sharp mind, and years, no decades, watching politics that he’d have the sense to stay away from RINO’s. We need pundits who will pick the best conservative candidates regardless of peer pressure from washington elites and establishment idiots, which is exactly what Krauthammer has shown himself to be.
