The GOP primary

It’s all over the news, and I understand that it’s important to some people, but after the 2008 elections I don’t see myself getting caught up in another horse-race.

It’s an important thing, but it’s neither the only important thing nor the most important thing.

And most of us won’t even get to vote in it.

But, for what it’s worth, I think all the GOP candidates are awful human beings, differing in style, not in degree of terrible-ness. That is something of an accomplishment for the GOP’s donor set.
