You will be missed?

Senator Brownback has dropped out of the presidential race citing lack of campaign funds, but not admitting that the general voting populace thinks he's bat-shit crazy. Although none of you care about this story I will kind of miss following him. Intelligent design advocates always crack me up with their inane sense of logic, but Brownback is a special breed of political nut job. While having more sanity than 9-11 'truth movement' supporter Cynthia McKinney (and that's saying very little) the Kansas senator was none to shy about promoting controversy over such social issues such as abortion, the death penalty, and gun control.

What's funny about the Republicans is that they don't give a clear message about foreign policy, nor do the Democrats really. Seriously listen to an answer from any one of the current crop of candidates about how to end the war in Iraq. They all give almost the same answer that goes along the lines of "we need to get the troops out, but few will remain to protect the Iraqi people and American interests."

Funny cause that's what the President has been endorsing for the last few months.

Well goodbye Senator Brownback. I kind of liked the personality you brought to the debates whether I agreed with you or not.

"Today, as we look back on the history of our nation and take note of how far we have come as a people, we are reminded that we owe a great debt to those who fought valiantly for the freedoms that we easily take for granted." - Sam Brownback
