"Today I have withdrawn my candidacy for President of the United States. I hope that my country and my party have benefited from our having made this effort. Jeri and I will always be grateful for the encouragement and friendship of so many wonderful people." -- Fred Thompson

That leave me with . . .

John McCain? You've got to be joking!

Mike Huckabee? Like hell!

Ron Paul? The President must not only has to be a citizen of the United States but native born. That eliminates him. (Scroll down.)

. . . deciding between Mitt or Rudy on January 29.

I'm going with Mitt. Don't like Rudy on guns and abortion. [sigh] It's like picking the least bruised pear...

"...the least bruised pear." What an absolutely perfect description. With me it's the ick factor.

Romney's been my second choice ... until I recall the first two debates. He talked like a walking tape recorder the first one, saying slight variations of the exact same thing again and again and compared himself to Ronald Reagan 423,897,312 times. (I'm exaggerating a bit on the number, but not by much.)


He was a little better during the second debate, but there was this danged curl in the middle of his forehead for the first part of it that kept distracting me, because all I kept thinking was, square jaw, dark curl ... JC on a boxcar! He wants us to think he's Superman?!


Then came Rudy (third debate, I think) who completely mischaractized several things that had been in the news quite a while back involving Romney, and I found myself seriously seeing Rudy as simply another run-of-the-mill politician who'll say anything whether it's true or not (like Hillary) just to get elected .


With only those two left to choose from, I'm going to have to go with Mitt, too.


It's back to voting for the "the least bruised pear."

Mitt. Too much baggage for Rudy.
