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 Vermont.

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 HE'S A CONSERVATIVE AND HE'S WHITE!"

He's also Hispanic -- a growing and important demographic. And, like Romney, he seems to have an IQ higher than your average half-eaten box of Milk Duds.

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 goodbye.

AFTERTHOUGHT: If the people over at Spell Check had their way, the president's name would be, "Bareback Alabama." Honestly.

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!
