Why, Yes…

...I am disappointed. Why do you ask?

Updated: And Nathan ads his own thoughts on the subject. I can’t decide if I think he’s more optimistic than I am or not.

Well, now I don’t have a candidate any more. I guess I have to choose between Giuliani and McCain. God damn it.

Guess I’m staying home this year.

It was hard to not see it coming, but the other options look so incredibly thin (on conservative principles) by comparison.

Is this the last hurrah for the party of Lincoln or just an off year?

I’m guessing Thompson backed out?

I’m not disappointed, as you well know, but if you backed him, I know he had something.  For that, for the Republican party, I am disappointed.

If that’s what happened.

If you’re disappointed that you’re not going to be my Valentine, well, you’ll get your chance tomorrow.  I’ll totally rig it for you.

I--honestly, no bullshit--think that it’s just an off cycle. Hope.

If it isn’t just an off cycle, though, then the problem isn’t just with the GOP, it’s with the American political system. It’s a problem that encompasses public expectations of government and a fundamental lack of understanding of political principles. I could also make a backhanded swipe at growing populism, but I’m at work and only have so much ranting time available to me right now.

I take jaded bitterness and cynicism so far, it comes out the other side as optimism.

I’m cynically optimistic.  When people say, “Man, things are starting to suck!”, my reaction is usually something like: “Things have already sucked worse than you realize for years.  You’re just noticing it now because it is starting to suck less.”

[shrug] It’s a talent.

See, I thought maybe you just discovered that Oxydol doesn’t really whiten, or something.

In retrospect, I don’t know how it was that I was able to hold my nose and vote for Bush. Well, I do, but here we go again. The choice of any of the leading Peerublican candidates over any of the Democrapian candidates is no choice.

I’m almost at the point of pulling for Paul.

Don’t do that Jed, you don’t look good in a sam browne belt.

Okay, I tried. Really, I tried to grok that.

If I shaved off the beard and waxed the moustache, or did the mutton chop look, I think I could pull it off though.

Still, the connection escapes me.

Well, regarding the look, rather than the whiskers, I was thinking more this, than Gen. Browne himself.

BTW, David, “add” usually is spelled with two “d"s. Most people with poor math skills rationalize their inadequacy by developing verbal abilities. Maybe you should try that.

Okay. I get it.

The best thing Paul could do would be to come out very strongly against these associations. That he hasn’t been more forceful about it is disturbing to me.

But then, the entire state of the Union is disheartening. That, more than anything else, is likely why I’m finding it difficult to get worked up over one particular election.
