The whole place rises as one, roaring and chanting, calling for a repeal to the Constitution so this luckless bastard, so desperate to get the hell out of a job he never wanted to begin with and only took out of spite; and Bush stands there, holding a dripping knife – the only tool he’s ever used – just another misbegotten Mark Antony, waiting for the cheers of the crowd to die…
Ron Paul gave up late last night, with one last dig at just about everybody:
...I have plans to continue fighting for our ideas in politics and education that I will share with you when I can, for I will need you at my side. In the meantime, onward and upward! The neocons, the warmongers, the socialists, the advocates of inflation will be hearing much from you and me.
It seems that nobody just quits anymore...They "suspend", whatever that means, after spending a bit over $30 Million getting shouted down in the debates every time he stated some inconvenient fact. I think in this case it means that Ron Paul better get back to his Congressional District before he gets defeated in Congress too.
John McCain has emerged as the front runner in the Republican campaign to keep the entire Bush administration out of jail. Pardons for everybody, especially Cindy. (I don't want to beat this drum too hard, but how whacked out do you have to be on illegal prescription drugs to adopt a child without telling your husband?)
"All the candidates are out there stumping like it's November. Do you know why campaigns call it stumping? Anybody know? You know where it comes from? It's
interesting. It's called stumping because when you ask them, 'When are we getting out of Iraq,' they're stumped. 'How about health care?' They're stumped. 'The economy?' Stumped." --Jay Leno
