He's "run the good race" and now the good-bye... its about time! (Rev. Gov. Huckabee)

Rev. Gov. Huckabee:
  • So long
  • farewell
  • auf wiedersehen
  • goodbye

(A nice British rendering)



My feelings on the matter are best expressed by the great Doxology


This is known to some as "All people who on earth do dwell" or "The old 100th."
This particular setting is by the great Ralph Vaughn Williams who was actually rather a-religious. None the less, I think it stands as one of the finest works of sacred music ever, and one of my happiest memories from my time at the Seminary was getting to be in a choir which sang this piece.





A touching almost sensual Russian version

I will give Huckleberrybee props for one thing...his concession speech was positive, gracious and sincere, as opposed to Romney's which was bitter, snide, sanctimonious and fear-mongering, in that he said he was 'stepping aside' because not to do so would be helping Clinton or Obama and thereby also helping the terrorists! McCain and Huckles kept it decent.

Huck kept it decent towards McCain, true, and you're right, his concession was much more gracious than Romney's. Of course, when Huck and Mittsy were duking it out though, the right Rev. landed some low blows of his own on the religion issue.

The Schmuckster may be out of the race, but I am sure we have not seen the last of him . . .
