How can it be that another presidential election is just a year away? And 2008 is shaping up to be the bleakest yet. The MSM has for all intents and purposes already put Hillary in the Oval Office. They breathlessly await the Second Coming of the Clintons. Hillary Rodham Clinton. A junior Senator from New York who has accomplished next to nothing in her political career. Hillary, with her long history of scandals, lies, and radical ideas is the best the Democrats have to offer America. I mean, seriously, what voter with a functioning brain would look at this woman and say, yes, there's a leader, someone with integrity, brilliance, a proven track record, charisma, the highest ethical standards, fresh ideas, a strong wife and mother? Right, that's Hillary. How can it be that we have gotten to this point where someone like Hillary has a real shot at being our next president? I can see it now; Hillary will have the master bedroom while Bubba will take the guest bedroom along with all the interns and cigars he can handle. The White House will finally have its very own Rape Room. Meanwhile, Hillary is up in the Oval Office, unleashing her brand of socialism on the country while millions of liberals everywhere will greedily swallow it all with great big dumb smiles on their faces.

I suppose a certain segment of the voters will vote for Hillary because she has ovaries versus testicles, presumably. I have never quite understood the whole gender obsession thing and why that makes one a better, or worse, president. I actually think a female president would be a good thing as long as she is intelligent and has values that are in step with most of America. That leaves Hillary out for sure. I recently accepted the sad truth that America will never be rid of the Clintons. This "couple" is about one thing: power. This has been their agenda for decades and with the lap dogs in the media, we are in for years of enduring their stench in the political landscape.

To be sure, the issues facing our great nation are numerous and serious: Iraq, Iran, national security, islamic terror, immigration, a slowing economy, health care, I don't know why anyone even wants the job anymore. And, the Bush Administration and Congress are both enjoying historically low approval ratings. Middle America is fed-up. We want and need change. Is the current crop of candidates from either side of the fence going to really implement change? Hardly. But to look at Hillary and say that she's the answer is a brand of insanity I can't even fathom. While I don't think Hillary is the Antichrist, she's not that smart, she is dangerous. If she gets control of our country all I can say is: God, help us all.

One final note on an unrelated topic. Flyover will now have a number of different authors for the simple reason that Scud is too busy globe trotting, making obscene amounts of money, and enjoying the American Dream. Something, unfortunately, liberals cannot understand, or accomplish. Rest assured, we all share the same disdain for the Left and the mindless drones who suckle on the Liberal Teat, pretending to be "progressive" when in fact they are simply morons who subscribe to pop-cultured, secular nonsense. So, buckle-up, Lib Dem Garbage, and enjoy the ride.

How dare you state that the American economy, under the reign of GWB is "slowing". Next thing, you'll be saying that our leader's decision to preemptively invade another country was a mistake. Go ahead, blame America first. You troop hater!

Hello scud. Long time, no see. Recently I watched God's Country, a documentary set in Minnesota, in order to understand your state without an actual visit. All I can say is you people have weird-ass accents. By the end of the film, everyone was ripping Reagan's economic policies. It made me think you were an oddity even in Minnesota.

With regard to teat suckling, nobody sucks em harder than Republicans. In 2004, I dispelled the myth of Republican self-sufficiency. In that year, twenty-two states sucked more money from the Federal trough than they paid into it. Of the states with a balance of payments surplus, eighteen (82%) were red states. The three blue state teat suckers were all generally rural: New Mexico, Maine and Hawaii. The eighteen trough feeders were mostly from the old Confederacy. Minnesota and Pennsylvania both paid more Federal taxes than they recieved.

In many ways, the red-blue divide reflects the percentage of rural residency. If you share a wall with a neighbor, then you probably vote for Democrats. If you have no sidewalks, then you probably vote Republican. And there are no bigger recipients of Federal redistribution programs than rural areas. According to Florida DOT, the average cost of rural roads is is over 7 million dollars per mile (lane cost times two). How does a community of ten thousand people afford fifty miles of road? The cost of installing that infrastructure comes to $35,000.00 per person, which is more than the median rural income. While I haven't spent much time in rural American, I have noticed its roads are paved. Where are those Bush-votin' hillbillies getting the finances to drive their pickups on asphalt? The answer is simple: the Federal teat.

I suppose it depends on your definition of "functioning brain", but I like to think I have one. If nothing else, it's managed to beat my heart at regular intervals. My functioning brain would like to see Hitlery Cunton in the White House for just one reason. If she wins, then scud will know what I went through during the last seven years. :-P

Excellent post young grasshopper. You have learned well the ways of the blogger. Now prepare yourself for the pseudo-intellectual babble tossed out like Hillary tosses out a word salad when answering a real question. Initially, it will sound good but when re-read, it will be gobble-de-gook. As you know, the left may have a few facts now and then, but without any moral or ethical foundation, they are lost and reality is avoided. Keep it up, good job!

It's been my understanding that "globe trotting" tends to give an individual greater wisdom, and insight....., but then there's always an exception. Welcome home, Scud.

Must I incorporate to get my share? said...

I've been trying for years to suck on the public teat. But I'm hindered greatly by the fact that corporations like Halliburton and Exxon are always in front of me. And they keep sucking the damn thing dry before I get there.
