1. Insignificant? Really?
In October 2007, I wrote a post about my favorite and least favorite Republican candidates, and I made the following statement:
However, the middle candidates (McCain, Huckabee, Brownstreak, I mean Brownback,
Paul, etc.) are really too insignificant to make a difference, so screw 'em.
So....I'm a moron.
2. Experience...who needs that?
In December 2007, I wrote this post about Ron Paul. No, I haven't decided that I like Ron Paul - he's still a raving lunatic. Rather, I made this criticism:
Dr. Paul believes a lot of other crazy things like ending
natural birth citizenship, withdrawing from the WTO, lifting all limits on the Second Amendment, that only a few years of mediocre congressional service qualifies you to be president...
Oh, 2007 Daniel, if only could have seen into the...past. In November 2007 (3 weeks prior to my Ron Paul post), I wrote the following:
The candidate that I've started to get behind is Barack Obama. Man, I love thatCrapnuts. I'm a moron and a hypocrite. I guess I could say in my defense that Obama's four years in the Senate have been more productive than Paul's, and I would sound like a weasel.
It looks like I not only missed the mark with Republican primary, but I also screwed myself over with the Democratic nomination. But, like all pundits, I will stubbornly stand by my choice despite all of the hypocritical statements I make to the contrary [cough Glenn Beck cough].
