Ok, I'm an independent, but if I were a Republican I'd vote for the Democrats come November. That is, if I really, really loved my political party.
I can't think of a worse time to lead this nation. The mess we're in will take years to clean up. And cleaning is such a thankless job, so why not let the Democrats do it. They're good at it.
So, Republicans, listen up.
Take that vacation you've been putting off (go hunting), spend more time with the kids (home school them if you want), reconnect with your spouse (remember sex?), lose a few pounds (add a few years to your life), read some trashy novels (Ann Coulter) and get a good night sleep for a change.
Then, come the year 2011, if it looks like the economy, national security and energy are turning a corner, by all means, go all out and take back your country.
The Democrats will be worn out and you guys, svelte and vigorous, will win easily. I promise.
In the meantime, don't fret about abortion, stem cell research, guns and immigration. Justices Roberts, Scalia, Alito and Thomas will keep an eye on things.
So guys, what do you say?
You'd look like heroes.
