As I said in my previous post, I enjoy chaos.
Another aspect of today’s presidential election that would fulfill my yen for chaos would be the situation where the Republican candidate, Governor Mitt Romney, wins a large share of the popular vote than does the current occupant of 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, President Barack Obama (of the Democratic Party), but loses in the Electoral College.
I will double over with fits of joy and mirth as I watch the bloviators and puffed-up pundits of the left and right switch sides from 2000.
To read and watch those on the right unleash their strum und drang over the illegitimacy of the second term of the Obama administration while ignoring the opposite position they took regarding George W. Bush in 2000 will be just as much as fun as reading and watching those on the left talk about the sanctity of the Electoral College and the wisdom of our Founding Fathers while ignoring the opposite position they took regarding Al Gore in 2000.
Long story short – it’s not much of a philosophical argument you have if you can switch your position depending on whether the person you speak of has a (R) or (D) after their name.
