Interesting Reading on 2008

McCain's pretty much tanked — the money's running out and the rats are leaving the ship. He sold us out on the First and Second Amendments and wonders why nobody loves him any more. Pathetic.

Maybe he can move to San Francisco, where the Board of Supervisors approved more and more gun control regulation for the most antigun city, albeit with the best restaurants, in America. Be sure to wear some flowers in your hair, Johnny!

Been a while since I mentioned Ann Coulter, so check out this article in Human Events...just as you suspected, felons vote (when they vote), overwhelmingly Democratic (and other tidbits from John Lott):
This is not because, as you might imagine, blacks have high crime rates and also happen to be overwhelmingly Democratic. Lott compares the voting patterns of felons and nonfelons, controlling for race, age, education level, religious habits, employment, age and country of residence. Wholly apart from all these factors, felons were still more likely to vote Democratic. Indeed, in the 2004 election, Lott says, felons in Washington state "voted exclusively for Democratic presidential candidate John Kerry."

With so many felons being Democrats, the party might want to think about changing its mascot from a donkey to a jailbird.

Needless to say, Democrats are neurotically obsessed with restoring the right to vote to felons. But the ex-cons themselves rarely express any interest in regaining this particular right. What ex-cons want is the right to own a gun. "Felons," Lott says, "who frequently live in poor, high-crime neighborhoods, want to be able to defend themselves."

So the evidence is in on that one, too: Preferring the right to bear arms to the right to vote (for choice), convicted felons have a superior value system to liberals.
And John McCain, too!

Gee, you're a supposed conservative politician, from a conservative State and part of the country. You trash the 1st Amendment, and turn your back on the 2nd, and then wonder why the campaign contributions have dried up?

Maybe we need another Amendment: not term limitations, but a requirement that at least once each decade all elected officials must work a real job. Not a "consulting" or "Board of directors" job, but something like what the rest of us do.

Quoting Ann Coulter is what should be against the law.
