OK, now that she’s made her exit speech, we are reminded of two things:
- Just how useless the Iowa Straw Poll is — she mentioned having won it — as if we didn’t already know.
- That the country is probably better off without her leadership.
I base the latter on her hyperbolic explanation of why she ran. She explained that Obamacare “endangered the very survival of the United States of America.”
So, in our lifetime, that makes two existential threats to our country: The Soviet Union, and a health care plan that is a timid, pale shadow of that provided in practically every other advanced nation in the world.
You know, I’m thinking it would be great if the GOP would now concentrate on finding a nominee who knows what a real threat is. Because the most critical part of the job description is, after all, commander in chief. Maybe that process began in Iowa last night.
