Whatever you may think of Rudy as a presidential candidate, you certainly can’t say that he hasn’t thought much about the next steps in our foreign policy and the war against terrorists. His knowledge and understanding of that subject is what’s keeping him in the top tier. That’s the only reason social conservatives are willing to accept a socially liberal candidate, and why everyone else is so willing to excuse Giuliani for his previous views on illegal immigrants and sanctuary cities. Speaking of Giuliani, there is a mammoth profile of him in The New Yorker, which is definitely worth the time it takes to read if you are considering supporting Giuliani to win the nomination.
Earmarks are still with us. Heck of a job, Democrats.
Rove resigns. The amazing part is that Rasmussen actually found that 25% of the Democrats he polled liked Karl Rove. That can’t be possible, can it? I think the legacy of Karl Rove will be that he was better at winning elections than he was at helping Dubya getting his agenda through Congress — and that the genius label was somewhat undeserved.
Also, from Cao’s blog, Kender says: “I Think I Shall Become A Socialist“. And the Dems will take care of me….LOL.
If that’s not enough links for you, just go read IMAO. There’s always something funny to read there. Just scroll down a few posts.
More serious analysis and debate will return soon after I finish this book. Until then talk among yourselves. 😉
