I was listening to Hugh Hewitt yesterday and he was talking to a republican congressman that is running for senator and the discussion turned to the other candidates in the race. The congressman used the term “vanity” candidate. I took complete offense and you should too that in a snippy fashion they both discounted all of the other candidates in that race. Hugh Hewitt just as a matter of fact stated “they have no chance of winning.” Hugh is a complete tool for the GOP. It is the one issue I couldn’t disagree more vehemently on with Hugh who I more often agree with than disagree.
People that have chosen to run have become totally disgruntled with the establishment candidates and are giving the voters a choice. And we need candidates that are not party hacks and will stand for the constitution and the founding principles of this nation. We need more “vanity” candidates because the fact is the Republican Party is as guilty as the Democratic Party for the mess we are in.
We need to vote for the candidate not the party. The party had its chance and blew it. That is the fact, and that is what people need to consider in the 2010 election.
Ask yourself; which party is responsible for the mess we are in? The answer is both parties!
Make a choice and take a chance on new candidates that are not connected to the apparatus that has served us so poorly over the past decade…
