The Not Enough election
I went off a while back on Jesse Jackson. He seemed to think Barack Obama wasn’t black enough. Then of course, Hillary’s had some issues garnering every single female vote because she’s not womanly enough. Once Barack was declared the most liberal senator in the United States, Hillary also got the dubious label of not liberal enough. On the Republican side, Mike Huckabee soared to the top of the charts pre-New Hampshire based on his label as being the only one conservative enough. Once people checked him out and figured out he wasn’t conservative enough, he floundered in South Carolina. Which was kind of odd in a way, since he lost profoundly to the man that never was conservative enough.
So, the way things are looking right now, it seems the man that is liberal enough, primarily because he doesn’t vote very often, would face off against the man that’s considered not conservative enough, because he votes too much. I’m sure if McCain had skipped most of the votes in the last few years he could argue he’s conservative enough, even though he’s not.
And, the bigger point, I don’t want him to be. The media, in my opinion, have the entire political arena of the United States so screwed up it will take them a generation to figure it out.
A very simple clue here, when the perceived not-conservative-enough Republican front-runner of a month ago fell apart, he was almost immediately replaced by the perceived not-conservative-enough candidate who was considered dead in the water when the other not-conservative-enough candidate was in the race.
Is that simple enough?
