Assuming there can be such a thing as clarity today in politics, or war, or anything else, as I read through news articles and blogs today I could not help but notice a few things. William A. Jacobson shares this tidbit: Clarity?:
Six hours in the car alone with large gaps in radio coverage (or at least any radio you would want to listen to) can have a clarifying effect.
And so it did:
We are on a path to nominate someone who campaigned against Reagan, campaigned against the Contract with America, campaigned against those who are pro-Life, campaigned against 2d Amendment rights, campaigned against conservatism, and designed and enacted the precursor to Obamacare from which he will not back away.
It’s a good thing it wasn’t an 8-hour car ride, or I’d really be upset.
That's pretty clear and expresses what many Conservatives are experiencing.
“I think a sow’s ear into a silk purse,” Harpootlian replied, “is not really the comparison here for Mitt Romney. It’s the old political adage, it’s political alchemy, you cannot make chicken salad out of chicken doo doo.”
“And, by the way,” he added, “Mitt Romney is chicken doo doo.” (Mediaite has the video)
May be, but he's the chicken doo doo that's stuck on our shoe and we can't seem to scrape off.
Which brings me to the latest silliness, an article and poster for Romney - Santorum 2012. Really? The Grouch said "why not Santorum - Romney 2012?" The answer seems obvious to me. Mitt Romney is the next in line, the Republican chosen one. He didn't win the last election, so there he must run and win this one (or so we're told). Santorum hasn't paid his dues. How's that for clarity?
Rick Santorum would make a great president, but would he be worth my vote if he were dumb enough to choose Mitt Romney for his VP? In what universe would that ever spell clarity?
But, but, but, Romney is the only one that can beat Barack Obama ... unless he isn't.
Clarity? It's all about as clear as chicken doo doo. Vote Rick Santorum!
