The Huckablundering Train Wreck
I've been overwhelmed with things at home of late, so there hasn't been much time or energy left for much-needed blog therapy. Things are looking up this week though, so hopefully there will be some therapeutic posting in the near future.

Normally, a negative CNN piece on a Republican candidate woundn't be surprising, but he's gotten a pass from the MSM recently and this clumsiness on foreign policy is frightening.
Round-ups worth checking out are all over the place, but start here and here at STACLU and then go here at HotAir.

Foreign policy and national security are huge, as is cutting taxes and fiscal conservatism. The only candidate I see with the conservative creds out there is Fred, and I agree with John Hawkins:

If Senator Thompson can beat the odds and become president, he would probably be better than most of those who have been in the White House in recent times -- though that is not extravagant praise. ...
