Who's the man...?

Crabigail feels this isn't going well.

A choice between John McCain and Mike Huckabee is like asking how you'd rather die:  slowly, of neglect? or slowly, of Huckfire and brimstone?  

Do we want to be taxed to death by a President who's making budget cuts, or taxed to death by a President/Preacher-man who will take our money and make himself feel better by giving it to the people who are taking it all anyway?

Do we want our border fence NOT built by a man who's shamnesty bill didn't go through after the outraged American people stopped it, but then tried to ram it through the Senate under another name two weeks later?  Or do we want our border fence NOT built by a man who won't give scholarships to the children of Armed Forces personnel but will give a free ride to the children of illegal aliens?

Dreadful choices, but at some point I have to contemplate pulling a lever for someone. Personal nightmare that keeps Crabby up at night?  John McCain as president, with Mike Huckabee as his running mate -- it's a lock, folks; I saw it in McCain's face during one of the debates.  If they're going to make me choose between McHuck and Hillabama, I'm not sure I can do it.  Crabigail may be in bed beside a box of Puffs Plus that fateful November day, dabbing her teary eyes with the heat turned up and cozy slippers on her feet, alternately eating a hand-packed quart of Baskin-Robbins Chocolate Mousse Royale and playing "Taps" on the bagpipes.  La morte d' U.S.A.? Who knows?

Rudy, Mitt, Fred -- what's your strategy?  Where are you?  Step up and be bold!  Make your mark!  Speak out now, before it's too late!

Someone needs to say, "You want the straight talk express?  Here it is:  John McCain will NOT build your border fence.  Ever.  He's had 20 years to build it, to enforce existing laws on employers that have created the slave labor force that exists for their benefit while the American people pay the healthcare costs and educate their children.  John McCain will never build that fence.  I WILL BUILD THAT FENCE.  I will hire TOM TANCREDO as my Homeland Security chief and we will happily build that fence for you, and while we're at it, we'll build one across the northern border, too."

No one is saying this.  Someone get out there, take the gloves off and say this!
