The split

The Republican Primary is a wide-open, bare knuckles brawl.

I can’t remember anything like it, and I’m no spring chicken. It is fascinating to watch it unfold. Also maddening at times, as well as frustrating, and exciting.

What has bothered me is some of the positions and statements that I’ve seen, not from the candidates, but in the Right blogosphere.

A number of bloggers that I’ve read and admired for the past few years have made the statement that if Mike Huckabee wins the Republican nomination, then they will either vote Democrat, vote 3rd party, or not vote at all.

It makes me wonder if the split in the blogosphere mirrors a larger split in the Party, or if it’s just an internet thing. I really don’t know.

Time will tell.

But, I will say this to those hot-heads who have decided that they will either switch Party affiliations, or not vote at all if their candidate doesn’t win: Pissonya.

You can kiss my rebel azz.

Update:  Adam says it much more politely than I.  “Huckabee Derangement Syndrome.”

The U.S. backs down in Bali

Just what kind of people are representing us these days? Wimps, that’s what kind. After being booed for rejecting global welfare, to be paid mostly the US, Undersecretary of State Paula Dobriansky caved to a couple of third world countries that want to be on the welfare roll.

The head of the U.S. delegation, Undersecretary of State Paula J. Dobriansky objected, setting off loud, long boos in the hall.

Next, delegate after delegate took aim at the United States, with South Africa saying Dobriansky’s intervention was “most unwelcome and without any basis,” and Uganda saying “We would like to beg them” to relent.

Then the delegate from Papua New Guinea leaned into his microphone.

“We seek your leadership,” Kevin Conrad told the Americans. “But if for some reason you are not willing to lead, leave it to the rest of us. Please get out of the way.”

The U.N. climate conference exploded with applause, the U.S. delegation backed down, and the way was cleared Saturday for adoption of the “Bali Roadmap.”

And once again, It’s all Bush’s fault.

A turning point may come a year down the road following the U.S. election of a new president, who many environmentalists hope will support deeper, mandatory emissions cuts in contrast to President Bush, who favors only voluntary approaches to reining in greenhouse gases.

Never mind the fact that the Senate voted 98-0 not to join the Kyoto treaty while Clinton was president, it is always Bush’s fault. See how the dhems have exported their BDS throughout the world? Uganda and New Guinea make the United States back down? Pitiful, just pitiful. There’s more in this AP story that riles me, such as the lie that the US was the only major industrial nation not to sign Kyoto, but I’ll let you read it for yourself.

Read the rest here.

When you caught my eye I saw everywhere I’d been

I keep hearing this tune on AMC. Haunting melody, kind of nice. Has a Jim Morrison feel to it.

Update: Youtube pulled the studio vid. Here’s a live version,

Editors, An end has a start

“I don’t think that it’s
Gonna rain again today,
There’s a devil at your side,
But an angel on the way

Someone hit the light,
Cause there’s more here to be seen,
When you caught my eye,
I saw everywhere I’d been”

Nite y’all
