Conservatives vs McCain

It's time to take a break from politics and fantasize a bit.

The fact that conservatives hate McCain is the best of all possible worlds, at least right now. I mean, I wish they'd hated Bush as much, because he actually deserves it far more. Here's what I'm getting at.

What do you think will happen the first time a President McCain goes against conservatives wishes and advocates the wrong kind of immigration reform, or proposes an outrageous cap and trade scam, or nominates a candidate for the Supreme Court whom conservatives don't approve of? Why, he'll deserve every bit of the vitriol that conservatives will be only too happy to lavishly heap on him.

Had they been as wary of Bush, it's quite likely that Republicans would still control the Congress and that a Republican could have waltzed into the Presidency this year. But every time conservatives needed to scream, they fell silent, the only exception being Bush's absurd choice of Harriett Myers for the Supreme Court. And by the way, that selection alone is far worse than anything conservatives hold against McCain, and then there's his signing of campaign finance reform…

And with a woman as Vice President who's shown she's willing to resign before resigning herself to things of which she strongly disapproves, and with the conservative base not only ready to raise the roof, but just itching for an opportunity, the election of John McCain just could be the best thing that could happen for America, and if it comes about, the scenic route McCain has taken to the Presidency is itself a reason why creationism should be taught in schools.

For her part, a Sarah Palin angry enough to resign over a betrayal of conservative principles would only serve to electrify the base and the country even more, and it could easily sweep her and Bobby Jindal into office in 2012 by unanimous acclaim*… because liberals don't count anyway.

*Assuming things remain exactly as they are at this moment.

About tedwest

A longtime veteran of comedy and political forums, I decided that I needed a more restful venue because... well... I finally hate everybody. Except my wife that is... and my ex-wife.. and... no, that's about it. I lead about as simple a life as one can, preferring activities that include anything that doesn't involve going out and seeing YOU! And I particularly enjoy what I call "Get the Bitch" movies on Lifetime. You know the ones where the intended victim finally does something so incredibly stupid that she forfeits her right to live, and from that moment on you're rooting for the stalker. Of course, it rarely works out the way you want, but when it does, the feeling you get is... well, there's nothing else like it, other than, maybe, eating chocolate chip cookies. Oh, and I'm proudly anti-wildlife, both foreign and domestic, and anti-environment - especially foreign environments. I think Howard Stern put it best when he said, "If fifty percent of the population died tomorrow, I can live with that." And I feel the same about the other fifty percent, so together, we've pretty much got it all covered.
