Quote of the Day

The ultra-religious, conservative Republicans generally can’t stand John McCain because he’s too liberal for the majority of the party. Though McCain is hated among staunch conservatives, Clinton is loathed, despised and the bane of many conservatives’ existences.

The next natural and logical choice would be Barack Obama. But this is politics, there’s no place for logic, and in the primaries people want a show – enter Huckabee.

Sen. Barack Obama, D-Ill., was the most liberal senator in 2007, according to National Journal's 27th annual vote ratings. The insurgent presidential candidate shifted further to the left last year in the run-up to the primaries, after ranking as the 16th- and 10th-most-liberal during his first two years in the Senate.

Yeah, Obama is the next logical choice if you're an ignorant, intolerant, know-it-all college student. Luckily, us "white, super-Christian and moral voters" can tell the difference.

I can't wait for the "youth vote" wave to do what it always does - crest early and dunk the guy trying to surf it.
