The Newest Republican

After wavering back and forth over Fred Thompson or Mike Huckabee, I am 99.9% sure I am going to have to go with Mike Huckabee in the upcoming primaries. I like both candidates, and I agree with both candidates on a majority of the issues, but I get the feeling when listening to both candidates that Huckabee wants it more. Fred Thompson just gives off this vibe of “I am in the race, and I’ll just stand here and see how this pans out.” Thompson doesn’t give off the energy that Huckabee does, and that is disappointing. So disappointing in fact that I felt compelled to change the party affiliation on my Pennsylvania voter registration from “No affiliation” to “Republican” just so I can vote in the Pennsylvania primary election on April 22, 2008.

I wish more states were like New Hampshire, which allow you to vote in either primary when registered as an independent, but as that is not the case in Pennsylvania, changing my party affiliation was the only choice. So it’s done and now Mike Huckabee will have one more vote in his favor come April 22nd.

Oh yeah, one other thing…

Is it just me, or has anyone else noticed how much Mike Huckabee looks like a young Jim Nabors?

In other other news, I finally got around to begin reading It’s Not News, It’s FARK, and at 268 pages, it should be a quick read. I will follow up with comments once I finish it.
