A Voice of Reason: Sane Views for a Crazy World

Political Darwinism: Thinning of the GOP Herd

Ten contenders, one nominee, the process will soon begin of thinning out the herd of those deemed unfit by that harshest of judges, political reality and another force. Good ole political Darwinism will be at work very soon. The GOP field will be thinned by at least three to five within a few weeks, and ironically two of those three who do not believe in evolution, may be the first victims of this Political Survival of the Fittest.

Having watched the debate, or at least parts of it again, and more importantly read the transcripts, I can with reasonable certainty say that Sen. Brownback and Rep. Tancredo’s campaign, which never really were viable, are about to fade away from whence they came.

Both are good men, and honoroable men. However, there must be victims in all evolution, and the unforgiving survival of the fittest rules will have their offerings. The irony that these two, along with Gov. Huckabee, discount evolution, is just a twist. By the way, that question had to be the stupidest question, among a plethora of stupid questions given to the candidates. Gov. Huckabee’s performance will likely only prevent the inevitable, but that will be determined at some future date.

The next on the list of death by political Darwinism is former Governor Tommy Thompson, whose comment about firing gay workers raised more than a few eyebrows, and probably provided the obligatory foot in mouth award of the night. Thompson was made aware of his answer today, and quickly backtracked, but even if he “misheard” the question as is reported, his flap is accepted upon the altar of political survival of the fittest, and the beast is hungry. Which brings us to Dr. Paul. Say what you will about the Texas Representative, he speaks his mind, and did so rather well. If this election were pre 9/11 he would have had some resounding points about the increase of involvment of government in people’s life. In a post 9/11 world his views still contain truth in a sense of a warning, but are not based in the current reality. Hence, Dr. Paul, who will not evolve into the new reality, will hence be deemed as unworthy to evolve, and nature demands he must go.

Alas, one more is demanded by the force of nature, political survival of the fittest, and this leads us to that most reliable of people, the politician to be named. Alas, as in baseball, evolution does not always follow a linear path, but rest assured, the process will continue, until the herd is thinned out and only candidates, Giulianius Magnimus, Mittus Romneus, and Mt. St. Helenus McCainus remain, perhaps to be joined by Freddus late arrivus Thompsonatus.

    Good stuff.

  3. Funny… though I don’t know if the Darwin analogy applies. It’s not so much that they aren’t fit, as that no one will allow them to demonstrate their fitness for the job.

    I don’t know if that is a valid reason for a candidate to not do well. in a way it’s up to them to make their own audience, but I can see your point. Perhaps the French model is better?

  7. Brownback, Huckabee, Ron Paul, Tom Tancredo, Gilmore and Tommy Thompson have to know they don’t have a prayer and are just in it to get name recognition and make some kind of point. Dean Barnett who writes on Hugh Hewitt’s blog made some good points. He called Brownback and Huckabee lackluster which is exactly what they are. I should be one of their biggest supporters because of their stances on the issues but neither of them do anything for me. Barnett also called Tancredo and Paul cranks who don’t have a prayer which totally nails it on the head too.

    My goal at this point is if Gingrich or Fred don’t become viable then I will vote for Rudy or Romney, whoever has the greater chance of whipping McCain.

  8. I’ll be posting on why Thompson is exactly what the GOP doesn’t need in the upcoming election.

  9. Not that I’m totally impressed, but this is more than I expected when I stumpled upon a link on Digg telling that the info is awesome. Thanks.

  10. Creationist and Darwinists

    Can any body tell me? Who has made the perfect, mathematical and complex laws of Physics, laws of Chemistry and laws of biology , complex reproductive system in human and animal and plants ?. Scientists are only discovering these laws and in through obeying these law making some imperfect or semi perfect things. Yet the scientists have discovered a tiny part of the Creator’s innovative world. 99% yet to be explored. Keeping in view only a stupid or illogical persons can deny the perfect, and the wise Creator.

    The Darwin has proposed a theory not a fact . His tautology could not be proved by any undoubtedly/real true scientific evidence/fact. After studying 10,000 fossils, Harun Yahya (click here to explore) a Turkish biologist has challenged all Darwinists of the world to produce a single intermediate fossil, he will pay US$100 billion . He has proved that every species appeared in perfect shape and disappeared and new specie appeared in perfect shape. No incomplete bird can survive and incomplete eye can see. A half build eye and half build wing cannot see and cannot fly.

    Survival of the fittest? Why love existence? Why a mother dies for her child?, Why A perfect family system of Honey bee functions?. Why Peacock beautiful colors appeared?. Darwinists have failed miserably to explain the facts of creation. So fact of existence of creator of a perfect, very beautiful and complex creation is just like Sun on the sky but blind cannot see.

    Indeed Creation and ordering of the universe is seen as an act of prime mercy for which all creatures sing God’s glories and bear witness to God’s unity and lordship. According to the Islamic teachings, God exists without a place. According to the Qur’an, “No vision can grasp Him, but His grasp is over all vision. God is above all comprehension, yet is acquainted with all things” (Last of Book of God to Humanity :Qur’an 6:103)
