Great choice, Florida!

Well, the Florida Republican primary is over. The good people of Florida have chosen John McCain, who is now the favorite to win the Republican nomination. I am astounded at how intelligent and insightful Floridians are.

In exit polls, Florida's Republicans said the economy was the most important issue in this election.
So, of course, they would choose the guy who has actual experience making businesses work, right? No, they pick the guy who's been quoted saying, "The issue of economics is not something I've understood as well as I should." Well, that's certainly a reassuring quote from the guy who wants to be the next president. But I'm not worried. Why? He also said, "I've got Greenspan's book." So he should become an economic expert shortly.

In a related story, I just read this book, and now I'm Tiger Woods.

McCain is also the guy who authored legislation to stifle political speech. He also tried to get a bill passed that would have given amnesty to millions of illegal aliens, and encouraged millions more to come to our country. One of his current advisors? A guy who's a dual citizen of Mexico and the US. A guy who used to work for the Mexican government. A guy who is quoted saying that people who move here from Mexico, “I want the third generation, the seventh generation, I want them all to think ‘Mexico first.’”

So McCain is obviously interested in closing the borders, and dealing with the crisis that illegal immigration is causing in this country.

I won't go into the many other ways that McCain is really a moderate Democrat disguised as a Republican. And I won't mention his ethical troubles through the years. Ill just say this: if he's the nominee, I'm not sure I can support him.

Again, thanks Florida!

Two comments:
1. You spelled the state wrong..it's Floriduh. (How do we really know McCain won? Maybe some of the seniors got confused and wanted to vote for Romney but voted for Pat Buchanan by accident?)
2. Does reading that book mean you can now snap my 18-match win streak against you in golf competitions? I remember the last time you trained for a match with me, said you were progressing, on the first hole you got in a sand trap and I think you hit about 10 shots to get out of it. I shot a 3, you had an 18, I felt like the 1986 Mets with that huge lead! (BTW, I have only golfed once since I moved up here, I shot 145!...I am rather good on the Tiger Woods golf video game however).

BN--I appreciate the offer. I need all the practice I can get. I have trouble with the shots where I have to get the ball through the windmill...
