Oh, they sure do pine for a daddy hero, and have decided Jeb is good enough...though Charles Pierce and Steve M. demonstrate pretty clearly how wishful and idiotic that sentiment actually is.
Meanwhile, underscoring the virtually non-existent attention span of yer average winger, Fox "News" contributor Keith Ablow channels his inner Dubya in naively asserting that, hey, we can make everything hunky dory just by engaging in our own version of "jihad," which sounds suspiciously like Bush's, um, vision (for lack of a better term) of a decade ago, but on steroids...because one, that worked out so well the last time, and two, hey, who cares about the cost in lives and money?
I forget where I saw this -- sorry for not being able to credit/link -- but the same wingers who reject global warming because "[they're] not a scientist" sure don't mind releasing their inner authoritarian/bullying tendencies while expecting us to defer to their...expertise...
And to be perfectly clear about this -- again -- I really don't care what kind and how many firearms someone owns or wants to own. People getting shot -- dead -- is what I object to. And I also think it's puerile and smug to talk about how much you like to fondle them.
