I can't even think about it.
He struck me as some extremist who should be completely on the fringe. I cannot believe this guy is a state governor and a serious contender for presidential candidacy nomination. That's genuinely scary.

To be honest, I'm grateful I'm sitting on the far side of the Pacific, where these loonies are confined to Family First and have precious little influence.

Did the polling places require you to show ID? I don't think they ever have done so here... Just curious...
Since my last name is difficult to spell, I always toss my sample ballot at them. No ID required.

Romney's last hope is California. If he doesn't win that, he's done.

The US can be a scary place sometimes.

I still can't quite fathom how he's a contending, serious candidate and not, at the absolute best, being treated as some fringe freak, like Ron Paul is.

It's kind of amazing that SBS is broadcasting a few hours of this in Australia as well. I think people are more than a little excited about the end of the Bush years.

Huckabee contends for one reason and one reason only:

He represents a rather large group of people.

Current tally:

Clinton--Oklahoma, Tennessee*, Arkansas, New York*, New Jersey*, Massachusetts*
Obama--Illinois*, Georgia*, Delaware, Alabama, North Dakota, Connecticut, Kansas

McCain--Delaware, New Jersey**, Connecticut, Illinois**, New York**, Oklahoma
Romney--Massachusetts, Utah**
Huckabee--West Virginia, Arkansas, Alabama


(* = rather large delegate count + significant-looking victory margin)

(** = winner-take-all state with rather large delegate count, OR significant-looking victory margin in non-winner-take-all state with lots of delegates)

You can add Alabama for Huckabee.

Just sometimes?

I am seriously contemplating moving out of this country if the executive branch of our government finds itself with another Republican. I honestly do not think I can deal with 4 more of years of this. The last 8 have been a nightmare as far as I'm concerned. When I think about the blatant beating the Constitution has taken, not to mention telling the International Community that they can basically go fuck themselves, it's almost too much for me to mentally cope with. Frustrating is not the word for it.

Moving out of the country might not be the best answer, but, I don't know what more I can do outside of vote, try to encourage others to vote, then grin and bear it if the results are not to my liking.

Sorry for the rant, I'll slink back to the Lemonade Stand where I belong.
