After reviewing all the candidates thoroughly, I have come to one conclusion: They all stink.
Let us start with the worst of the lot, Barack Obama. As I have never knowingly voted for a Marxist in my life, I see no reason to start now.
Number two has to be Bob Barr. I discounted him in July after he waffled on Global Warming. I don't mind voting for a third party candidate, but he/she better be PERFECT! Barr is far from perfect.
Finally, there is John McCain. If this ticket were reversed, I would happily take a chance on voting for Sarah Palin, even with her inexperience. She seems driven, and ideologically on the money. Unfortunately, I cannot bring myself to endorse someone whom I wish dead, and that would be the only reason to vote for McCain. He lost me during the debates with all his talk of "bipartisanship", and "reaching across the aisle". If I wanted a Democrat, or a Democratic Party solution, I could have voted for the real one!
That left me in a quandary: I have no one for whom to vote. But then, last week, I saw him: The man who would make the perfect president: Mike Singletary, interim head coach of the San Francisco 49ers.
I first arrived at this conclusion while watching his first press conference after his first game as head coach, when the 49ers lost. Singletary was fearless, even sending his starting tight end Vernon Davis to the showers in the middle of the game after Davis mouthed off to him after a penalty.
On top of that, Singletary's raw and honest emotion and integrity was just so refreshing after months of listening to John and Sarah and Barack and Joe:
After watching that, I was ready to throw myself on a grenade for Singletary. Vote for him for president? No problem!
Frankly, all Singletary would have to do is change a few words, and that press conference would make a killer stump speech. He even has the beginnings of a platform in it:
1. We go out and hit people in the mouth.
Good national defense.
2. We are not a charity.
No altruistic government under President Singletary!
3. We execute from the very start...to the very end.
Pro-capital punishment. Good for dealing with terrorists.
On top of this, Mike Singletary is inspirational, in a way that Barack Obama could only dream of being. Note that at no time during that press conference was Singletary using a teleprompter! Truly a man who speaks from the heart.
As for any comparisons to John McCain, Singletary's war record speaks for itself: 10 times sent to the Pro Bowl and won a Super Bowl as a middle linebacker for the Chicago Bears. All while playing under MIKE DITKA! The Vietcong only WISH they had someone who could torture like Ditka!
Singletary even has Bob Barr topped: Singletary has not even been nominated by a party, let alone a third party!
Tough times like we live in now call for tough leadership. We need a president who is not afraid to send Nancy Pelosi to the showers, or hit Mahmoud Ahmadinejad in the mouth. This is why I endorse Mike Singletary for President: Change you BETTER believe in!
