Mediocre not available

Now that the actual primary election season is upon us, I note that the field of viable contenders for Mr. Obama’s replacement is small and distasteful.  No conservative wants Mr. Romney.  No person who views the Washington establishment with suspicion wants Mr. Gingrich.  Santorum, Huntsman, Bachmann, Paul, and Perry have no chance.  Cain is out of the fight.

One of the depressing facts of life is that you get to choose only from among your choices.  Doug Wilson is right on when he says perfection isn’t available and shouldn’t be expected.  But is it too much to ask for a mediocre candidate with a chance of winning?

Well, apparently.  The Democrat party is passionately committed to various evils like abortion, sodomy, near-universal welfare dependency, Marxism and its attendant evil of eternal class warfare, limitless government taxation and spending, an aggressively fascist regulatory establishment, and so on.  Most Americans find these things repulsive.  A man of decency and Constitutional, conservative principle would trounce the Democrats’ presidential candidate.

Big sigh.  One measure of the GOP’s flaccid commitment to morality and patriotism is that, against a Democrat party such as I’ve described, it still offers candidates like Romney and Gingrich.  Men of principle and martial vigor would not be shape-shifting closer to the Party of Evil to steal away a few swing voters from America’s fickle, feckless middle.  Remember what Tea Party folks were saying in 2010: We’ve compromised ourselves into perversion, bankruptcy, welfarism, and perpetual war.  We want leaders who intend to reaffirm a Constitutional rule of law or — literally — die trying.
