The Dark Side

Let’s step to the dark side for a moment. Which Republican presidential candidate, either declared or undeclared, would make you least apt to want to cut your own throat if they became the next president of the United States? Which one would cause you to consider grabbing the knife immediately?

After the Bush fiasco, if any Republican is elected as the next President (this assumes the world will still be here by the end of next year) I will end it all.

Surely America has learned!

If you think Bush is mad with power, wait till Guiliani gets in there.

His mob mentality and the persona of an arrogant bully, coupled with more sleaze and corruption than Bush could ever dream.

Guiliani would be the one to make me grab two knives.

In order, for the moment at least...

Giuliani
Romney
Brownback
Huckabee

Oh FUCK. I hate them all. They are all equally knifeworthy.

Sadly, I only feel marginally better about the Dems. But in knives, marginally counts!

mccain would get the knife. the idiot still supports war.

guiliani would make me fume - but i like that he's pro-choice and pro-gay civil rights.

somebody i'd feel comfortable with - none.

There's not one in the current crowd of candidates that make me comfortable.

I had a bad feeling when Bush was elected, and it was no surprise how much of a phony and liar he continues to be. I would never vote Republican, the current band is nothing but a band of traitors that have destroyed the founding ideals that created this country. They are JUST LIKE terrorists, religious extremists forcing their biblical interpretations on those that don't share their mythical beliefs. Thomas Jefferson would be gravely dissappointed in how that party has been destroyed by religion.

They are all awful but Giuliani is the worst followed closely by Huckabee. We can count McCain out.

they all suck SO bad, i dont know if you can even go down the "lesser of 400 evils" route.

the worst of the bunch is Mitt --- slick, oily, a fucking liar, animal abuser, panderer, hypocrite with a barbie-bimbo wife, and five hard-driving sons who find the best way to help the country is drive around in a van.

but worse is all so relative. all of them make merry men of Third Reich so proud.

what scares me so is the fact i truly believe that this country has NOT learned after the bush debacle -- that the fear-inducing, say-anything republican field will continue to use Atwater/Rove (and strong arming of polling places and control of the MSM) tactics to "ensure" an '08 victory

gee that was SO optimistic on this Monday morning

Ron Paul does not make me immediately want to run for a toilet with my hand over my mouth.

Newt Gingrich scares the bejebus out of me.

This is one of those "lose/lose" questions like "death by fire OR death by drowning?" There are so many bad options, but by far the worst candidate is the "Mayor of 9-11" Rudy Giuliani. Possibly even more superficial and dangerous than the bonehead we have in office now, he's managed to turn a photo-op into a run at the Presidency. Let's hope middle America sees through his over-reaching ambition to find the flawed man New Yorkers have known for years.

Thompson or Gingrich would make me happy.

McCain would infuriate me.

Ron Paul is the only one with principles, but I don't really like those principles. Guiliani is the worst of a bad lot, but I think he would be the easiest to beat.

I'd start packing to emigrate if those were the best that american politics could offer up.

Ron Paul. He would end the war but never be able to get most of his domestic agenda through Congress, so all of his more extreme nutball libertarianism (and it isn't all nutball) wouldn't have that much of an impact.

Giuliani is a bigger moron than Bush. McCain, though often wrong, is at least a man of genuine integrity (or was until recently).

I cannot bear any of the candidates on either side of the aisle except Dennis Kucinich, Mike Gravel, and Bill Richardson. To me, these men do not represent the military industrial complex. Ron Paul is so interesting, his stance on the war I love, his stance on the Federal Reserve, well, this guy is just asking to be assassinated. However, he is anti-abortion and would dismantle all government social programs. Patricia, I cannot answer that question because I do not go to the dark side, I just do not.

none of the ones running are acceptable to me. of the not running, somebody like hegel or lugar, or john warner (but only because i've been wanting to have liz taylor endorse him by saying "john warner is the finest american i've ever married")

Not possible...I've never voted for a Republican President in my life, I'm not about to start now! Really...they are all poison.

Ron Paul would not make me want to move out of the country, but then he is more of a Libertarian than a Republican... at least in the modern definition of what a Republican is. The worst choice? toss-up on the others, I don't care. I'd vote for a cardboard cutout before I'd vote Republican.

Ron Paul is the least offensive, even though his libertarianism is anti-democratic and completely offensive to me. I would still take him over the others. Mitt Romney scares the hell out of me, but then so do the rest of them.

Blogger DCup said...

Tough question. I'd have to agree with the Future. None of them and all of them.

But if I had a gun to my head and had to say...

Huckabee would be the least offensive, I can't believe I'm saying that.

Guiliani would make me go for the knife.

Ron Paul

Brownback is a stark raving lunatic who wants to make us all live in a Dominionist theocracy. Definitely the worst, to me.

Giuliani's authoritarianism is deeply scary, but at least he's a relatively rational actor, and not a social conservative. I guess he's the least repellent option.

i already have the knife in hand, just in case. they are all nutcases. they all say "be afraid. be very afraid. only I am tough enough to save you."

I'd probably have to say Ron Paul.

Let me offer my best wishes to Alberto Gonzales as he packs his belongings and heads back to Texas to start the next chapter of his life- I can only hope that prison is a part of it.

I can't bring myself to think about another Repube president. The thought makes me sick to my stomach.

Paul and Huckabee are about the only two people that come to mind. I think I could accept either one of these guys.

As if there's any real difference on the Dem or Repub side.

It's not like we have mangaged to have any great presidents from either side during my voting lifetime and I cast my first vote in '76 for the peanut farmer.

I have Heard Ron Paul was good but we could not survive another Repub.
That is why I fear another stolen election or the chief dink weedd to cancel elections and declare martial law so he can head his wars.
I fear their are those that would call for it once he attacks Iran.

LOL! Very nice, and oh so true!

I might even vote for Paul, for reasons proferred above by DD. At least the laws would be created by Congress for a change.

If Guiliani, I skip the knives and begin researching unregistered weapons.

I think that their will not be elections, however either party don't inspire and confidence in the Government we would end up with.

Now if there are no elections before putting a knife to my throat and cutting it I would seriously think about fleeing the country.

If unable to flee than I might consider ending it myself rather than waiting to be arrested as an enemy combatant and being sent to a Death Camp to be tortured before being killed.

God Bless.

Least fearful Huckabee but the god stuff still frightening.

Scariest: Fred Thompson people will think he is really a NY DA.

This is a very interesting question. Awhile back I would've said McCain would be the one I would be least apt to slit my throat over. But since then I've felt he's sold out and I don't like his support of the war, etc.

Guiliani on one hand is less socially conservative but the rest of his views would be close to a dictatorship. No help there. But I don't think he'd be the worst. I'm thinking maybe Brownback for that title.

But I still have no "No slit throat" candidate chosen.

Giuliani is my choice for immediate termination of my life. If there were another serious terrorist attack under a President Giuliani, I sincerely wonder whether our republic would survive. I'm sure our country would, but I have real doubts about our constitution surviving.

I'm least likely to worry about McCain, Romney, or Paul.

Most dangerous: Giuliani

I pretty much agree with everybody here. But I'll stick to the questions as asked

1) RON PAUL
2) MIKE HUCKABEE
3) MITT ROMNEY
