I should probably hope that John McCain will not win the Republican nomination.
1. He will be much harder to beat than the snivelling and sneering Mitt Romney in the general election.
2. If he's the nominee, my vote for Hillary or Obama in the general election will be cancelled out by my husband's vote for John McCain, thus making election day much less enjoyable. If Hillary or Obama are opposed by Mitt Romney, my husband will joyfully vote Democrat.
3. He's the candidate most likely to prolong and expand the war in the middle east, which I think is both wicked and foolish.
A McCain nomination will drive Rush Limbaugh and Sean Hannity absolutely mad with irritation, and it's worth it. Worth it! Yes, such is the extent of my sickness. Such is the extent of my ire. I would rather have the democrats fight harder to win, my husband betray the cause, and my country potentially spend the next hundred years embroiled in war than have those wingnut bozos spend one show crowing and jeering because McCain was brought low again.
The truth is that apart from the war, I wouldn't have a problem with McCain as president. I'm sure there are things about him that I could find to dislike, but he's so much better than Bush, I think it would be silly to quibble. If McCain is the nominee, and we lose, it won't be such an eye-stabbing-out level tragedy. Maybe it's hedging my bets. Maybe it's logical. Or, maybe it's just me wanting to stick it to those arrogant blowbags on right wing radio. WHY DO I LISTEN TO THOSE PEOPLE? It only leads to more madness.
