Meghan Cox Gurdon in the Examiner

Get a gander at this.

I'll lay aside for the moment my ideological opposition to Frum and his ilk. Cox Gurdon is essentially endorsing Frum from the standpoint of "Wow, we got away from our principles and let some power-hungry incompetents lead our party for a while. Let's get with the socialist program since the Democrats just won with it. Never mind what we're supposed to stand for. It's more important to win than to stand for anything."


If that is where the Republican party continues to go, I will wholeheartedly vote Democrat. Better to put the pedal to the metal and go to full-blown socialism and have the nation crash sooner than later, and start the rebuilding process. Being slightly less socialist is no strategy or ideology. The whole point is to be FOR something, isn't it? Words cannot describe how disgusted I am with this kind of thinking. Must be going around those dinner parties she and Frum go to.

And now DELAWARE???

Blowing another big second half lead on the road is inexcusable. This team has regressed big time since the Old Spice Classic... I'm worried about the complete inability to win a significant road game. Jordan Carter, never one of my favorites, looked terrible. I think it's time to look at Cam Long as the point man, or least split those duties between he and Folarin Campbell. I think we can lose again in conference, maybe 1 or 2, and certainly not at home, and still hope for a decent seed or at-large slot.

Georgia State and Iowa...

First tings first... That loss to Georgia State today was UGLY.. big time. Choking away a 13 point halftime lead against a bad team, even on the road, is just unacceptable. Between that adn the ECU loss, we took all our juice and poured it right out. We can afford perhaps 2 more losses in conference, and need to smoke our BracketBuster opponent just to have a viable at-large shot.

Secondly... everyone who supports Duncan Hunter needs to do everything they can to help him show well in Iowa. Those administration-worshippers at Fox News are in the tank for Giuliani, so they've excluded Congressmen Hunter and Paul from the forum with Chris Wallace on Sunday up in New Hampshire. Disgraceful. Prove them wrong by contacting the Hunter campaign and asking what you can do to help.
