Well, I suppose it's all over but the crying. I'm going to state it for the record here: I will NOT vote for John McCain for President. It dosn't matter who is also on the ticket: Condi Rice, Fred Thompson, even if the Gipper rose from the grave to run alongside the charter member of the "Gang of 14", I won't be voting for him.
No, I'm not throwing away my vote - that's what the mantra from the McCain gulag will be. Number me with Ann Coulter, I'd rather see 4 (or less) years of Hillary than watch the party I've tried to nuture itself fall into the mud, never to see the light of day again. In fact, should the original RINO win, I expect that the Republican party wouldn't survive intact to the mid-term elections.
I'd take the time to tell you my predictions for the future, but things like double digit inflation and unemployment, an 80% marginal tax rate, and nationalized and rationed health care aren't fun to mention. Just a warning: to those in the insurance industry - start your job retraining now.
If anyone is willing to start an Ohio chapter of the Conservative Party - drop me a line.
