What he said.

Fred! is my man.  I would look forward to voting for him.  Romney or Gulliani?  I would hold my nose and vote for them, only because Hillary or Edwards or Obama would be worse.

McCain?  No chance in hell.  McCain is a first-class enemy of freedom.  I don’t think he is evil.  I think he is wrong.  I think he believes he knows better than you how to run your life.  I think that his service as Commander-in-Chief in the Global War on Fascist Islam would be compromised by his barbaric treatment by the Vietnamese.  I think that he too easily reaches for what is politically expedient over what is politically prudent.

Huckabee?  He should run on the Democratic ticket.  I really don’t see a difference between Huckabee and Obama.  The difference I see between Huckabee and Hillary is that I at least think that Hillary would have the spine to take action when America gets attacked again.  Huckabee is an empty suit with no will, and no ability to enforce any will he might one day find.

Romney is the best candidate the Democrats are running.  And no, that wasn’t a typo.  Romeny is a leftist, but he is a Red-State style leftist.  We could hold the line with Romney.  Guilliani is an authoritarian, but I think that he has enough respect for the constitution that we could hold the line with him as well.

From a standpoint of federalism and liberty, the one person we could actually gain ground with would be Fred! Thompson.  That is why he is my guy.

World Concerns

January 16th, 2008

So… we have former congressmen being brought up on terrorism charges, Fred! being all badass, and the possibility that a significant chunk of the world’s energy problem could be gone in a decades, and what do I have that I think deserves being blogged about?

I had to RMA my Rock Hero guitar. This sucks.  Apparently, it is so widespread that EA doesn’t even question it.  If you tell them that you are having strum-bar problems, they just send you another one and tell you to send the original back in the box the new one comes in.  My strum bar would register three or four strums on a single activation — and none of them actually in time with the strum itself.  Luckily, I bought Guitar Hero III, which blows whale chunks as a game, and the guitar it came with feels like a blocky Soviet Bloc piece of Decepticon shit, but it works, which is more than the Rock Band one is doing.

The Rock Band guitar feels a lot better.  Higher quality plastic, the buttons are in a comfortable position, it responds(ed) so much better, is less noisy, and is all around just better — until it decides to go Tango Uniform.

At least my drums don’t seem to suffer from the “manufacturing defects” that a lot of people hit.  Yet.
