Republicans, Enjoy

I have a confession to make. I listen to liberal talk radio. It's a blast. I don't often get to say this, but being a Republican (especially in Minnesota) has been really fun lately.

I am having a great time listening to Democrats tear each other apart. Frankly, with all that's being said, I don't know how they'll recover. The Obama people are ripping Hillary to shreads, while Hillary continues to dig into Obama until he's almost unelectable. It's really nice to have other people do your work for you, isn't it?

But it might all be over. The big day has come. The day so many Democrats have waited for. This is supposed to be the day when the winner of the Democratic nomination will be clearly decided. Or will it?

Hillary has said that she has to win today's Pennsylvania primary to stay in the race. Most pundits think she will, especially after Senator Obama's gaffe last week. Who really knows? I suspect that whatever the outcome, Hillary will hold onto this race by her fingernails, the Dems wellbeing be damned.

For me, and I'm sure for other Republicans as well, it's been a most entertaining ride, one that we hope we don't have to get off of just yet. Our greatest dream would be to have the Democratic infighting continue until August, so there are only 3 months left for the Dems to attack John McCain. At which point they will lose the general election because they couldn't see the forest for the trees.

They couldn't run their own party well enough to avoid the silly Michigan and Florida delagate problem. Then they tore their own candidates apart for weeks on end. Is this the party that should be running the country? They can't even run their own endorsement process.

In the meantime, I'll just sit back and enjoy being a Republican.
