Regular Guy Paul on What He'd Have to Believe in Order to be a "Conservative" Abandoning McCain Because of Palin
Here's a snippet:
... I've been thinking about what I'd have to believe in order to make a jump like that:My Comments:
10. That two years as the chief executive of a state is less relevant experience for the presidency than two years as a back-bench senator with no major legislative accomplishments.
9. That a man who is revered as a "maverick" because he pisses off social conservatives is never allowed to do anything that pisses me off.
8. That the man who included his time in elementary school and his undergraduate degree in international relations among his presidential qualifications knows more about foreign policy than a war hero with two and a half decades in the Senate, or even more than a woman who for two years has received intelligence briefings on Russian incursions into Alaskan airspace.
7. That McCain's pandering to the base of the Republican party is more dangerous than Obama's pandering to the base of the Democratic party.
As usual, the Regular Guy cuts through the pseudo-intellectual self-justifying bullsh*t to the very heart of the matter. You'd have to be delusional to be "conservative" and supporting Barack Obama.
