No Politics

I know, I've made a vow to ignore all election-oriented information and activities until about this time next year. But I couldn't resist at least checking in with the first Republican debate. I didn't watch it, and I won't scour the blogosphere for juicy bits about it, but I had to at least read the NY Times op-ed. And I wasn't disappointed. At least we'll have some comic relief.

The idiocy seems astounding. Santorum, Gingrich, Bachman. I mean, it seems like a Democrat's wishlist, doesn't it? Even the smart one is a few bricks shy of a load.

Mr. Romney, the presumed front-runner, provided almost no details of his economic plan, except to attack Mr. Obama for making the recession “worse and longer.” (He didn’t mention that the recession ended in June 2009.) He said the government’s bailout of General Motors and Chrysler was a waste of money and accused the administration of catering to the auto unions. He did not mention that it saved at least 1.4 million jobs and a vital American industry, which has already paid back half the cost.

Gingrich wants oaths of allegiance. Bachman just wants to close the EPA. All this, and Palin isn't even in the race yet. Hoo boy.
