Super Tuesday on Toast

The 2012 Super Tuesday (so-called) primary results tomorrow may or not bring clarity to the GOP presidential race, but the backbiting, hostility, and bashing against other candidates evidence in the right-of-center political blogs appears to have little chance of abating.

Many of the commenters seem to be experts on one subject:  Toast.

After a given candidate loses a primary (or even wins one) or makes yet another dumb statement, any number of commenters rush to upload posts that pronounce that candidate toast.

With all the talk about toast, you'd think these guys work at Denny's or the Waffle House.

And what's with this doom-and-gloom defeatism from some of the toast-masters about the upcoming presidential election? Some of these are paid trolls from the Democrats, but that aside, no one knows what's going to happen in November, including those authoring those blanket blog indictments.

And this almost childish threat that "I'm going to stay home unless my candidate wins the nomination" is ridiculous.

If you haven't noticed, all politicians are full of it, including the four remaining, flawed candidates that are vying for the Republican presidential nomination. But any of them would be a huge upgrade over the current occupant of the White House.

Do you really want four more years of socialism, crony capitalism, and out-of-control government spending and regulation? Do you want Obama making more radical-left Supreme Court appointments or other lifetime nominations to the lower courts? Then by all means, stay home.

As we have written previously, those on the right and in the middle must unite in support of whoever becomes the Republican nominee--whether that's Romney or Not-Romney--in the 2012 general election.

Otherwise, the country could be toast.
