A hilarious quote of the day over at Kevin Baker’s place
Given how the GOP field has been winnowed, this has really just been a race to determine the form Gozer the Traveler takes.
So this just means the giant Sloar is off the table and means is we’re looking between the moving Torb and the Staypuff Marshmellow man.
If you don’t get the reference… I’m not sure we can remain friends. Sorry.
For those of you who do get the reference, that joke has actually changed my mind about voting for (*shudder*) Romney. You see, I can’t fight the Moving Torb. The Torb has too many worshipers and comes from a dimension totally not grounded in our reality. But the StayPuft Marshmallow Man? While backed by an inter-dimensional force, the SPMM is clearly a construct of our reality, composed of sugar, corn syrup, water, gelatin that has been softened in hot water, dextrose, vanilla flavorings, and sometimes coloring, whipped to a spongy consistency, and his followers are less than enthusiastic about supporting him.
In short, I can beat the StayPuft Marshmallow man or at least slow him down. Not so much with the Large and Moving Torb.
Hopping off the analogy train, what I’m saying is that either way we go, the occupant of 1600 Pennsylvania Ave come the early days of 2013 is not going to be a friend to liberty. Obama’s agenda is that of putting America into ruin so that a larger, more intrusive government can take hold thus bringing the Marxist dream to fruition.
Romney, while still a big government liberal with an R by his name, is not a committed Marxist. His attacks on our freedom will be easier to battle for several reasons. One, they won’t be economic attacks, at least not ones on the scale of Obamacare. I will give Romney credit that he at least understands economics from a perspective outside of college theory. Two, just like we’ve kept Obama at bay in regards to firearms, we can do the same with Mittens. Heck, we did it with Fumbletongue before Obama.
I don’t like Romney. I don’t trust him and find his Big Government leanings just as abhorrent, but I find him less of a threat (still a threat, mind you) than Obama and crew. Kevin’s comment of “Supreme Court Justice Eric Holder” is also a scary thought and a way that Romney would do considerably less damage than Dear Reader.
Just like I didn’t care for Santorum, I would have preferred him over Romney because his social issues would have been easier to battle. Well, thinking about it, the issues Romney brings to the table are easier to fight than Obama’s. Add into the fact that I have two beautiful daughters, I’m not ready to help crash the system to get it over with because I’d be pulling it down on their heads.
And if all that fails? Screw it, we can cross the streams.
