I am short on time, but there are a couple of important reminders I ought to post, which should enlighten and amuse my readers, and in one instance make them feel quite lucky.
No. 1- Be Glad You're At Assumption. My blog has not been without criticisms of Assumption College, but as several of my conservative Catholic friends can attest to, the progress made since the advent of Prez Ces has been astounding, and the faults of this institution are becoming less noticeable with time. Until Christ be formed in you just got a lot shorter. Not so with our detested rival, the College of the Holy Cross, which recently made the Catholic Hall of Shame by being only one of a few "Catholic" institutions to host The Vagina Monologues this St. Valentines Day (right after the previous scandal of allowing Planned Parenthood to use their property a few months back). As another blogger once put it, better to homeschool your children in a cardboard box than send them to be educated by the Jesuits.
No. 2- Whatever You Do, DON'T Vote For John McCain. Many thanks to the Huckabee voters (and of course Ron Paul voters) who humiliated McCain with several post-Super Tuesday primary defeats, even though the Huckster has little chance of securing the nomination. As Ann Coulter wrote in this week's (as always) smashing column,
Nominating McCain is the gesture of a desperate party. Republicans are so shell-shocked and demoralized by the success of the Bush Derangement Syndrome, they think they can fool the voters by nominating an open-borders, anti-tax cut, anti-free speech, global-warming hysteric, pro-human experimentation "Republican." Which is to say, a Democrat.
As before, I encourage everyone to look into third parties for this November. There may be some good Republicans to vote for in the local or state elections, but electing McCain would irreparably damage the conservative movement. Imagine what it would be like if, just as many Republicans have been weak on immigration during the Bush years for the sake of party unity, a McCain administration caused them to lose heart in the fights against high taxes, human experimentation, and weakened their pro-family resolve as well? The Republican Party would then be as useless to conservatives as the UK Cnservative Party has become under David Cameron and France's UMP is under Nicholas Sarkozy. The Grand Old Party's conservative faithful need to say enough is enough.
