Electile Dysfunction

The inability to become aroused over any of the choices for president put forth by either party in the 2008 election year.

I must admit, I'm not enthusiastic about any of the people who are desperately running for president. Hillary Clinton keeps crying and her husband has acted like a rabid bull-dog. Huckabee will be worse than "lust in my heart" Jimmy Carter. Is Obama just all words or is there any substance to him? I like a few things about Romney but am neither sure nor excited about him. Like most, I'll probably end up voting for McCain.

Than again, I may just vote Democrat this time. President Bush was the first time I voted Republican since Reagan and I only voted for him in 2004. Nader got my vote in 2000 because I didn't trust Bush or Gore. It was a protest vote.

In many ways, I wish it would be possible for my governor, Haley Barbour, to run for president. He is more than capable of leadership as he has proven after Hurricane Katrina. But I doubt if he would ever be a nominee. His biggest drawback will be that he is the governor of Mississippi. Mississippi is still the poster child of racism. Mississippi always scores near the bottom on income and education.

Great pun.

Wasn't Bob Dole a spokesman for Viagra?

Someone e-mailed it to me. I do believe you're correct about Bob Dole.
