You get what you deserve

Elephants never forget, Republicans never learn. John Hawkins polls the right-of-center blogs regarding their most desired and least desired Republican nominees:

Most Desired
1) Fred Thompson (86.5)
2) Rudy Giuliani (70.0)
3) Duncan Hunter (60.0)

Least Desired
1) Ron Paul (87.0)
2) John McCain (61.0)
3) Sam Brownback (56.0)

Interesting, that the least conservative politicians are the most desired by these would-be opinion leaders, while the most conservative ones are two out of the three least desired. Not that it matters, of course, two terms of a strong-government Republican president has destroyed the Republican party’s chances for at least the next two presidential terms and possibly four.
