As one of those post-9/11 security moms, it all comes down to a simple question for me: Who will keep this country — and my children — safer from harm?I agree that security is a very important reason to vote for the Republicans; frankly, I will never trust the Democrats with that particular issue, no matter how hard they play at "supporting the troops".
But if I may be honest for a moment? One of the many reasons I'm going to vote Republican is because I don't want the Democrats to be in charge. More than that, I can't wait to see their faces when they lose.
When I visualize the morning of November 8, 2006, and the media is announcing that the GOP has done the impossible and held on to Congress, I see
...the heads of Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid, Howard Dean, Keith Olbermann, Bill Maher, etc. literally popping off their collective shoulders and flying around the room under their own steam like so many deflating balloons (deflating like their HOPES AND DREAMS!)
...Markos Moulitsas and the rest of the Kos Kidz weeping bitterly as they deal with the fact that reality really sucks for the "reality-based" community.
...dozens of left-wing bloggers desperately trying to spin their defeat into something positive, only to give in to their true impulses and just throw tantrums while labeling those who re-elected the GOP to power as idiots who just don't get it.
...armies of Republican faithful trolling on every liberal website, leaving only one short but delicious comment: "HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!"
...George W. Bush, sitting in the Oval Office with just the barest smile on his face, the true winner in the election. Hail to the Chief, baby.
Tell me that wouldn't be the greatest day ever.
