GOP creates eight jobs, at least

If all the Republicans running for president were laid end to end, would marriage still be restricted to only a man and a woman?

What the Republicans need is a return to the good old days when the presidential ticket was decided in the back room. You know, the shifty guys in the smoke-filled back room. That’s how we got Roosevelt, Truman and Eisenhower.

The current flavor of the week system underscores the weakness in the field of wannabes. And it has given birth to some revealing doozies:

“Corporations are people.”

“If you are poor, it’s your own fault.”

“Nine, nine, nine plus a noun and a verb.”

“The State of Texas plus a noun and a verb.”

“God told me to run plus a noun and a verb.”

Things have gotten so goofy that the Tea Party is considering changing its focus from the presidential race to hopes of gaining control of the senate. Seriously.

This GOP beauty pageant has got to stop. It’s so bad on the campaign trail that even Sarah Palin won’t run.

At the risk of repeating myself, let me ask: if all the Republicans running for president were laid end to end, would they excite the electorate?

Or just the crazies …

Well done, my friend. And if the Republican candidates were all laid end to end, they should stay there........

I am sure you have spoken with, and so have I, several Republicans shaking their heads at just HOW whacked out the far right fringe has become. Fortunately, I don't think they can hold sway over the whole bunch, but the fact they are shooting for the SENATE now, says volumes about where the Tea Party mistakenly thinks it is now.
