I don't have time right now to link to all the posts across the center-right blogosphere throwing temper tantrums that McCain won Florida and is poised to win the nomination for the Republicans. Suffice it to say that they are plentiful and lots of people are threatening to sit out the election if McCain does win.
Here's my reply: Get over yourselves. You need a spanking and a time out. You need to be convinced to not sit out the election? How about this.
We "RINOs", such as people like me who thought that tax cuts in the middle of deficits were the equivalent of payday loans, didn't sit out the election when Bush was elected. What did we get? Massive deficits. We knew that was going to happen, but we voted for the guy anyway. We voted for Dole and we voted for Bush I. We voted for the airheaded Republican congresscreatures in our districts as well. You're welcome.
So now you want to point to one individual policy or another on the part of McCain and throw a temper tantrum? Thanks, pal. So much for winning the war on terror, replacing ACLU members on the Supreme Court and at least taking a swing at controlling government spending. That's not enough for you, you have to have more.
Well, at least some of us were mature enough to know how to take half a loaf instead of nothing at all. If you need to sit out the election, why not do it in a corner with a dunce's cap on.
When I have some time, I'll go through the blogosphere and add the links so you can read some of their hysterical sobbing.
