For those of you who have read "Lord of the Rings" or seen the movie.

Middle Earth = Middle America

John McCain = Sarujohn the White

Mike Huckabee = Grima Wormtounge

Ron Paul = Rondalf the Grey

The Democratic Party = Sauron

Chris Peden = The Balrog of Morgoth

The Fellowship of the Ring = Us

The Ents / Rohirrim / Dunharrow = Apathetic / ignorant voters

We're kind of in the middle part of the story. Sarujohn has just "defeated" Rondalf and forced him to battle Chris, who is somewhat his equal in local fundraising and support. Sarujohn thinks he can share power with the Democrats (as evident by "the alliance of the two towers", but he's really just their tool and will be destroyed by them in November. The Democrats want to send America into darkness (socialism), but they don't know the power of The Fellowship", and the spirit of Rondalf the Grey will "come back to life" and become Rondalf the White, who will gather the good forces to himself and we will take back Middle America!

On the days that I am very down I often think of my favorite movie "Lord of the Rings" The smallest amongst us, against overwhelming odds, take on the evils of the world, never give up and with the help of the men of the West save the world!!! Not such a fairy tale is it??
