It was all caught on videotape, folks. I'm not making any of this up, I
swear. With the exception of Romney -- who is the only one of the lot who does
not have little birdies flying out of his ears -- I can only pray that one of the
current crop of idiots gets the nomination, assuring an Obama victory. But
that's probably wishful thinking on my part. Would the people who vote in
Republican primaries be asinine enough to go with any of these chuckleheads? That all depends on
the state of course. While a candidate like Sarah Palin would be a cinch in
South Carolina, it's doubtful her act would sell many tickets in
They'll probably wind up going with Marc Rubio, the newly
elected (and popular) senator from Florida. I can see it now: "Just like
Obama, folks! Rubio came out of nowhere BUT

A lot can happen in
the 21 months between now and the election. We just can't afford to sit
around twiddling our thumbs. Barack Obama may not be a Progressive's dream, but
like it or not, he's the man many of us have invested our hopes in -- and a third
party uprising is out of the question. Don't
even go there. The GOP is beyond redemption. If that party is ever again
given control of the legislative and the
executive branch of our government, you can kiss this country

over at Spell Check had their way, the

Here's a link to Michele Bachmann's nutty
speech at the Conservative Political Action Conference two days
ago. Trust me -- it has to be seen to be believed. The gal is a scream!
