The Lesser of Two Weevils

When I was a kid, my grandfather was my hero. He had all kinds of little sayings that would just crack me up. Sure, he indulged in the low-brow "pull my finger" humor (any good grandfather will), but he also could turn a phrase with the best of them. One day I had a choice to make and I did not like either choice. He told me, "You will simply have to pick the lesser of two weevils..." It took me a second to catch the play on words. After that it was a paroxysm of laughter.

Well, my political friends - we are being told by fellow, well meaning Republicans that if we don't like Romney, at least it will be better than Obama. In other words, on election day we will have the opportunity (once again) to pick the lesser of two weevils. As long as you hold your nose, it won't smell as bad...

If you are like me, you are fed up with the media telling you who your nominee is eight months before the convention. You are probably also sick of the half baked attempts by worthless candidates to model Dr. Paul's ideas in their speeches (and then claim that they have always held those positions). But the thing I am most tired of is people telling me that they don't want to vote for someone unless they can win.

The idea behind this is that if the "Republican" nominee is someone who "can win," then that is who you "can" vote for. In other words, don't let that whole notion that you might vote for someone who actually knows the economy, has a workable plan to cut $1 trillion dollars from the budget in his first year and wants you to be able to choose how you want to live your life (read that: "Liberty") get in the way of you voting for "the guy who can win."
