Don't tell me what to do

By AL DIAMON  |  February 29, 2012

Anyway, it's important we send somebody who can represent our views on the party platform, particularly to show support for planks against one-world government, Sharia law, and the unconstitutional federal income tax. Because those are the crucial issues for folks here in East Abunni.

Nominations? Shubb Dithersalot is nominated and seconded. I've checked the rules and can find nothing that excludes him from being a half delegate just because he died in that fireworks accident. In fact, it makes ol' Shubb an even better choice, because he won't go changing his mind when exposed to any facts. Also, he won't complain about reclining there with his upper torso in the parking lot.

Finally, it's time for this caucus's main event, the presidential straw poll. Before we cast our ballots, it's important to remind everyone that while there are many criteria to consider in making your choices for the most important office in the land, the one that we as Republicans should never take into account is electability. If we start down that primrose path, we're just going to end up with the likes of Snowe and Susan Collins in the Senate, Paul LePage in the Blaine House, and GOP majorities in the Legislature.

That's the kind of Republican Party Charlie Webster wants.

But it's not what we grassroots fruitcakes stand for. So don't let a little racism, sexism, homophobia, religious intolerance, perverted 19th-century moral values, or a grasp of science equivalent to that of serfs in the Middle Ages stop you from voting with your gut.

And please hurry up. Because as soon as this caucus adjourns, it's officially Easter in East Abunni. No matter what the one-world-government calendar says.

    Reform is in the air. Olympia Snowe and the Portland Press Herald are calling for changes in the way we elect our leaders in order to restore public confidence, end gridlock, and reverse global warming. There’s a much better chance they’ll accomplish that last one than either of the other two.

    The university system’s decision to add Demeritt to its roster at a salary of $125,000 a year generated criticism because it was done by ignoring normal hiring procedures and came at a time when the system is facing budget shortfalls, program cuts, and layoffs. Demeritt is going to have to hit a lot of three-pointers to make up for all that negative reaction.
