Do Your Homework!!

As much as I've made fun of women who voted for Hillary to "get even" with men, I'm afraid a lot of my fellow Republicans are making the same mistake of voting for someone for all the wrong reasons. I love this quote from Ann Coulter's Column, "The Elephant in the Room."

Dear Republicans: Please do one-tenth as much research before casting a vote in a presidential election as you do before buying a new car.
Are you too busy boning up on Consumer Reports' reviews of microwave ovens to spend one day thinking about who should be the next leader of the free world? Are you familiar with our "no exchange/no return" policy on presidential candidates? Voting for McCain because he was a POW a quarter-century ago or Huckabee because he was a Baptist preacher is like buying a new car because you like the color.

MItt Romney. And I am sure every Fundamental Baptist out there will think I am backslidden.
If I thought Fred Thompson had a chance, I might vote for him.
