Tonight, the clown car of Republican presidential contenders will drive into the ring of the Fox "News" circus and they will all pile out, with enough hot air to do in the dodgy New York developer's combover. (One of my vows is not to mention him by name).
Today, I wrote a column at the Seattle Times on the economic questions that should — but won't — be asked. Earlier this week, Kunstler had a superb piece on "matters that serious candidates should dare to talk about." It's really worth a read, even for those of you who are Kunstlered-out.
Yet it says something about out Cold Civil War that nearly half the nation will look at the fools tumbling out of the clown car — not one of whom has done anything constructive for the public good — and see the next president.
Behold, the heirs to Lincoln, Theodore Roosevelt and Ike. These "conservative" voters will view this not for sport or comedy, but with ultra-seriousness.
Anybody but that Islamo-fascist socialist (pssst Negro) in the White House. Lord, if this is socialism, where are my high-speed trains, free university education, universal health care and month's paid vacation?
