Wheel! Of! Republicans!! (Place Your Bets, Folks)

Primaries are finally around the corner, and we can stop playing this odd "Flavor of the Month" game where a new candidate is the front-runner every damn month, and Mitt Romney is a close #2.

Iowa's caucuses are days away, and not only is Ron Paul surging in the polls, but now Rick Santorum is becoming a relevant number 3 in the race.

Almost time to do-see-do again, candidates.  Michele Bachmann needs her 5 minutes in the sun or she's going to whither away from lack of exposure...

It'll be nice to see these primaries done and over with, so the Dem's have their champion (Obama) and the Republicans have theirs.  I know debates and primaries are supposed to separate the candidates from the contenders, but I have never seen such infighting amongst ranks as I have this year.

Oh, and don't forget... if Donald Trump doesn't like America's choice, he may just run as an Independent to make sure a person he doesn't like doesn't get the office.

If there is any bright side to the "Wheel of Republicans" it's that Rick Perry got on, was at the top for a brief few days, and then slipped back into obscurity.  This could mean one of two things:

- He's more irrelevant than he thinks, and will not gain any traction for the rest of the race, or

- It's his turn to surge and become leader again.  And at just the right time.

If he does end up getting the nomination, or becomes relevant again in any way shape or form, I suggest looking at a line of "Fuck Rick Perry" accessories.  Hats, T-Shirts, Bumper Stickers, etc.  Show your love, and get that tool booted off the island of misfit politicians already.

Can it be voting time now please?  So we can get most of these clowns off the air?
Please Share it! :)

Idaho in general is behind Ron Paul in a big way. In fact, you see 3-4 Paul banners and billboards for every 1 of any other candidate.

However, I see him as the new Ross Perot or Ralph Nader. A few decent ideas, but still lacking general public acceptance. His checkered past and racist comments aren't going to help him either.

I'm penciling in Herman Cain, simply because Presidents who sleep around in office (Clinton, JFK, most of the founding fathers) get shit done. America needs another pimp.

Thank, Q said...

I actually like Santorum. He's a bit weird, but he seems like someone who would actually get something done. The others (aside from Paul) are just politicians. They would get in office and do the same ol', same ol'.

As for Paul and his comments, they are very insensitive, but when you listen to the explanation (which the media rarely plays), he does makes sense. He isn't saying that segregation shouldn't have happened, he just says it should have been done differently. He does also remind me of Nader or Perot though.

doesn't look promising...and i can not wait until the election is over.

Autumnforest said...

I'm highly entertained by the Republican selections. They seem to go against the majority of what Republicans want which is hilarious. This is going to make for some hilarious famous lines....

Pickleope said...

I don't care who wins, I just want them to stop the incessant "debates". They've been relentless and one each week it seems.

This reminded me to stay far far far away from televisions while election campaigning is going on.

No one is talking about Huntsman, the former governor of Utah and ambassador to China. He is about the only moderate GOP in the bunch who can take on Obama and win. All the others are too conservative and will lose big in the general election.

Lost.in.Idaho said...

...and Huntsman hasn't had a chance to be on top yet... maybe he's next?

Mooner's Full Of Holiday Spirits said...

Brandini. Thanks for the pimp move on the hat. Isn't Huntsman the other Mormon?

Remember... Mormon is one little 'm' from the truth.
