Can we be honest for a minute and admit that there aren't any great candidates in this field? Ron Paul is admirably principled but would let the world burn because throwing a bucket of water would be against what the founders wanted, Romney is unpleasant and most Americans think Mormons are creepy, Santorum is a religious lunatic that doesn't have a snowball's chance in hell at appealing to moderates, Perry can't play the compassionate conservatism card to save his life and is starting to make Dubya look eloquent, and Gingrich is as big a joke now as he was when he was laughed out of Congress. The only one that could hope to poach votes from Obama is Huntsman but nobody will talk about him.
Mainstream America thinks the Duggars are creepy because they exploit their homegrown cult to stay off welfare. The only reason they aren't arrested for violating child labor laws is because of the special protection extended to religion. I resent that these crazy people get tax breaks for refusing to use birth control.
