This is Embarrassing

I should probably wait until New Jersey Governor Chris Christie makes it official, but it appears that he'll eschew--once again--the many pleas of desperation coming from professional Republicans for him to run for the presidency in 2012.

Thank God!...and thank you too Governor Christie.

Don't misunderstand, he'd make, I'm confident, a very fine candidate.  But then I think our current slate of candidates, with all their annoying quirks, foibles, and obvious shortcomings, do so as well.  And even if they don't, they are still each in their own way an enormous improvement over the current resident of 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.

One of the BIG differences between us and them is that we don't pine for messiahs and aside from his name, Chris Christie is no messiah.  We, unlike them, believe the average man and woman can manage their own lives quite well, thank you very much.  And even if they can't, they ought to be forced to do so.  In the long run, it'll be better for them and for the republic. It'll serve to help restore their self-respect (I hate the phrase "self-esteem") and also give them a taste for genuine liberty after which they'll never again be satisfied with the government-issue swill they currently have to purchase with unearned food stamps.

The most important thing is to get behind whoever emerges as the GOP alternative to Barack Obama.
