So many mainstream news sources are touting polls showing Gov. Sarah Palin as receiving only tepid support in a possible run for the Republican Presidential nomination in 2012.
What a shock, after so many of those same programs have conducted the most egregious and nasty smear campaign against a national political figure since William Randolph Hearst!
This Designated Conservative is certainly not set on any one candidate for 2012, but…
…or How to Play Nice in the Same Sandbox With Other GOP Politicians
Dear 2012 GOP presidential candidates:
As we are already beginning to hear the rumblings that precede the 2012 POTUS electoral earthquake, it is time to lay down a few ground rules for prospective republican candidates for President of these Unites States of America:
RULE NUMBER ONE:
Posted in 2008 Election, 2010 Election, 2012 Election, Michigan, Reagan
Tagged 2008 Election, 2012 Election, Chicago Tea Party, conservative, constitution, Democrat, Eleventh Commandment, freedom, Leadership, liberal, liberty, McCain, Michigan, Obama, politics, Presidential Campaign, Religion, Republicans, RINO
Every party includes at least one. You know, that guy nursing a Coke instead of a beer. The girl who stays sober while her friends get stupid. The one holding the keys, ready to help their friends return home safely.
The Designated Driver.
Every political party needs one too…
The Designated Conservative.

To learn more about conservative presidential candidate Rick Santorum, check out his Facebook page or visit http://www.RickSantorum.com/.
A Rick Santorum fan is trying to help repair a problem with Google Search caused by a liberal hacker who is manipulating Google’s ranking system to bury Rick’s official site links under a mountain of Leftist nastiness:
Rick Santorum is a God-fearing man who wants to save unborn children and protect traditional marriage. Because of this, radical left-wing activists launched a Google-bombing campaign so that people searching for his name will find pages full of vile, disgusting filth instead.
What we can do as Christians is to fight back with a Google-bombing campaign of our own. We need to post as many links as we can to www.RickSantorum.com (his real site), to help it rise in the search engine ranks and beat the fake sites.
If you have control over any websites, blogs, facebook pages, or anything like that, post a link to www.RickSantorum.com, and help fight back against the gay agenda.

The Designated Conservative would like to thank our loyal readers for carrying this blog up and over 20,000 pageviews.
I would like to thank President Obama for providing so much fodder for conversation.
However, the website for this blog is “dcon2012,” so it will be important to ensure that Pres. Obama becomes Citizen Obama in November of 2012 on the fourth anniversary of the founding of this site.
Reposted from 8/2010 – worth a second read in response to the decision to abandon the Defense of Marriage Act by the Obama Administration
The Designated Conservative has commented on the gay marriage debate before (see Gay Marriage and the Gospel, the Subprime Marriage Crisis, and even more posts on this topic), but the federal District Court Judge in San Francisco’s recent ruling overturning the popular will of the voters of California – substituting his one “supervote” for millions of conservative residents of that state – has put me in mind to address the issue from a slightly different direction.
The following lays bare the fallacies and flawed logic of the Judge’s ruling – which we hope will provide the foundation upon which the U.S. Supreme Court will rebuild the 5,000 year old protective structure around marriage as a sacred union between one man and one woman.

So, President Obama has taken yet another step into unconstitutional, banana republic territory by directing the Department of Justice and Attorney General Eric Holder to cease defending the federal Defense of Marriage Act in court.

Santa Claus gave this Designated Conservative an unusual Christmas gift: A book of former President Jimmy Carter’s poetry. After cursory investigation, a poem was uncovered that ought to be the subject of Congressional investigations and a 20/20 expose!
Entitled Always a Reckoning and Other Poems, this small volume is a collection of the former President’s prose on a variety of topics, from stargazing on the White House roof to musings from his childhood in Plains, Georgia.
In “Progress Does Not Always Come Easy,” Mr. Carter freely admits that the dead voted regularly for Democrats in Continue reading
