somehow the Republican presidential run-up strikes me as nothing so much as a Royal Rumble during the down years in which the WWF lacked a real draw… the question is not merely “who gets the strap?,” but also, how on earth are we going to buy one of these cats as “the dude?” here’s some ABC speculation on the impending rumble.
i dunno, but i still hope it’s Romney for Theater of the Absurd purposes. i’d say Romney-Huckabee, but that coupling is just a little too viable. huckabee could sandbag hilly with his whole “Listen…friends,” commonsense moralism.
oh, and Ron Paul is “cool” only to the extent that he poses a potential third-party, spoiler-on-the-right threat. eugene’s paul fetish is making me wanna gag…it makes too plain how all too many liberals can succumb to the same ideological fantasies of isolationism and free market-style “freedom” as guides the libertarian crusade. ick.
