Campaign 2008 trail schot

Mitt RomneyWhile in New Hampshire this weekend, 2008 US Presidential hopeful Mitt Romney quipped while looking at a couple’s tree with its very big leaves:  “Adam and Eve would not have looked as promiscuous if they had had leaves this big.”

Hm.  Interesting.  I’m sure there’s a fetish for that type of thing, and that must be who Romney is courting.

Hillary Clinton:  Touting her experience in a dig at Obama, which Barack Obama countered by saying he “doesn’t remember her”  as head of the Treasury Secretary.  Let’s face it.  They’ll all be stocking their white house from the same cupboard of wandering policy wonks.  Lots of Clinton-era retreads.

So I saw two Ron Paul supporters getting to work to wave their stupdifying “rEVOLution” signs.  One said, “How’s my favorite Liberal?”  The other said, “How’s my favorite conservative?”  And thus you have these two counterparts with their sort of self-aware storyline.  To be honest, someone needs to talk to the liberal and ask him a few questions.

Mike Huckabee is pulling upward in the polls in Iowa, and I think will torpodo Romney, only meaning good things for Rudy Giuliani.  Then again, that might be a sign that someone could pull a Jimmy Carter in this stilting political environment after all.  Ah well.

    That Romney remark shows just how many religious right moralists still hang out in the Republican Party. We need a parliamentary system where these folks would be forced to vote with the libertarians and wouldn’t be allowed any cabinet positions that matter.
