It’s still too early for me to pick my favorite among the Republican presidential candidates. I’m just coasting along, eliminating those who step on my toes, even at this early date. Ron Paul gets a line through his name because he & his supporters rub me the wrong way, and weird. And just today, Mr. Gingrich shot himself in the foot, twice: favoring the unconstitutional health insurance mandate, and then describing Paul Ryan’s budget as right-wing social engineering. So, for me, two down, likely several more to go. Bye, Newt!
