Why Can’t They Make Up Their Minds

You may wonder why my blogs have of late been so few and far between.  Then again, to my dismay, maybe you haven’t even noticed.

Truth is that I have been unable to zero in on a Republican candidate.  One who I can take consistent shots at.  The candidate of choice has been a moving target.  Oh for another Sarah Palin.

Rick Santorum, the flavor of the week, just begs for the spotlight.  But I know that even before I finish typing this blog he will have gone the way of the Dodo.  And then what will be left for us…er, right.  Mitt Romney who we already know more about than most of our relatives will undoubtedly move back into the lead.  A point in his favor was his recent declaration of electability when he anointed himself a “severe conservative.”  But after that, what else is there to say about him?  And, once I’ve said it, he’ll probably offend some poor, black, disabled grandmother and be out of range again.

Rick is no slam-dunk-shoo-in for my barbs even though he claims that the Crusades are why the American left hates Christendom…

The idea that the Crusades and the fight of Christendom against Islam is somehow an aggression on our part is absolutely anti-historical, …And that is what the perception is by the American left who hates Christendom.

And who doesn’t already know Rick’s thoughts about climate change or, more specifically, what should be done to deal with it…

Well, if you have a problem and you want to craft something, what should that thing that you’re crafting do? Solve the problem. Do any of the proposed solutions put forward by Al Gore and his friends do anything to solve the problem? Even the scientists who support the theory will admit to you that it doesn’t do anything to solve the problem. So query, why support the solution, other than you may have some other agenda that may be in place here.

His comments ten days ago to a Fulton, Missouri gay man don’t rise to a level that commands our attention above that deserved by either American Idol or America’s Funniest Home Videos

You’re not entitled “to special treatment under the law…[Marriage is] not a right, it’s something that has existed since the beginning of human history as an institution where men and women come together for the purposes of forming a natural relationship as God made it to be. And for the purposes of having children and continuing that civilization. It is an intrinsic good…And as a result of that, we extend a privilege. We extend certain privileges to people who do that because we want to encourage that behavior.  Two people who may like each other or may love each other who are same-sex, is that a special relationship? Yes it is, but it is not the same relationship that benefits society like a marriage between a man and a woman.

Even his thoughts about God can’t make Santorum a boogeyman for our sniping…

I get a kick out of folks who call for equality now, the people on the left, ‘Well, equality, we want equality.’ Where do you think this concept of equality comes from? It doesn’t come from Islam. It doesn’t come from the East and Eastern religions, where does it come from? It comes from the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, that’s where it comes from.  Santorum went on to suggest that people who don’t live according to what he termed “God’s law” can’t claim “equality.”

A couple of guys who do deserve our undivided attention are Heinrich Himmler  and Reinhard Heydrich.  You may remember these guys from World War 2.  Himmler, second in command to Adolph, was the head of the Gestapo and Heydrich was largely responsible for planning the disposition of six million Jews, and three or four million Poles, Communists and other assorted undesirables.  The interesting thing about both of them is that, while exhibiting extraordinary patriotism and an abiding hatred of everyone not like them,  they were relatively incompetent. Yet they managed to control a highly educated German population, bring about the Holocaust and very nearly win the war.

That could never happen here.

    You know what they call a place where they put crazy people? A santorum.

    (I’m pretty sure that’s what it’s called. Sounds right.

    Santorum doesn’t have a chance in a general election. I’m increasingly optimistic about Obama’s re-election.
