The first ever "Think Flag" award for excellence in bog commenting is hereby presented to the following comment. Face it, the current Administration has led principled conservatives into defending the indefensible day after day. Conservatives now find themselves justifying behavior and policies they would hang a Democrat for. If you still want to be a Republican, the only way you can keep your integrity now is to wish for a completely different set of Republicans.
And when you do install your principled conservatives in office, and you finally succeed in balancing the budget over the corpses of Social Security and Medicare: Swarms of aging baby boomers will attack your mansions by night, bearing patio torches and Weed Whackers.
