Jim Webb, Marine, Vietnam Veteran, best selling author and Democratic Party presidential candidate, has called it quits. Money was a problem, lack of campaign infrastructure, and such things as being a former Reagan appointee, he was Secretary of the Navy under Reagan, he once claimed "women can't fight," all of which are No-No's amongst Democratic Primary Voters who like Republican Primary Voters prefer purity to anything remotely associated to reason. And sometimes one suspects that a run for president is little more than a self promotion activity.
In the area of Skeeviness, Jim Webb lacks the quality. To quote Bishop
Aldulf, "He don't play pussy-foot to his own good dog." His answer to the really
odd question at the recent Democratic Debate "Which enemy are you most proud
of?" His answer was that of an heroic Hollywood type hero along the lines of
some one like James Bond or a pre talking-to-a-chair Clint Eastwood, rather
than something that our very own heroic hero might have considered an heroic
response, but Webb's answer would have gone down well with Republican Primary
Voters. Yes indeed we're all doomed.
