This quote from Christopher Hitchens (via Mr Eugenides) has stayed with me over the last few weeks:
Hillary is the next president, he told radio's Hugh Hewitt, because, "there's something horrible and undefeatable about people who have no life except the worship of power . . . people who don't want the meeting to end, the people who just are unstoppable, who only have one focus, no humanity, no character, nothing but the worship of money and power. They win in the end."
Of the three remaining candidates, Hillary is my third favourite. In other words, I hope her campaign crashes and burns as soon as possible.
However, it is very difficult to argue with the logic of Hitchens above so I will take that logic and use it as a positive by changing the subject.
Let's discuss Kris Boyd.
The man who saved Rangers' bacon at the weekend with 2 well taken goals and a decisive penalty in the shoot-out. He also spared Rangers blushes by hitting the equaliser against Partick Thistle. (Or Partick Thistle Nil as I thought they were called for a long time...). I believe he was running at a goal every two games for Kilmarnock, Rangers and the national team too.
The man displays the same talents as Hillary Clinton whereas she has a desperate lust for power, his never ending desire relates to scoring goals.
To borrow Hitchens' language above, there is certainly something undefeatable about a man who has no life but for the worship of scoring goals. Kris doesn't want the game to end until he's bagged at least one. He has no pace, adds little to the team, is perhaps even overweight but that goal-scoring addiction he has is priceless. He always wins in the end.
For me, he is the first name on the Rangers, and Scotland, team sheet. But as a Celtic fan, I hope his club's campaign crashes and burns just as quickly as Hillary's will.
