    I love reading the right-wing blogs for the entertainment value. Here’s one of the better ones, giving reasons why conservatives should stay home in November (excellent advice, I might add):

    Let me illustrate with a hypothetical example. Let’s say our hypothetical Republican President, unlike the real President Bush who gave us Campaign Finance Reform and No Child Left Behind, gave us OSHA, the EPA, wage and price controls, surrender in war and Justice Blackmun. I would predict that such policies would lead to oil price shocks and recession domestically, to emboldened enemies abroad, and to resignation in disgrace politically. And worse, the electorate would blame Republicans for all this in the following elections.

    For the younger readers, all of those are attributed to that arch-liberal, Richard Nixon.
