"Phooey," said the White Rabbit. "Mitt Romney just announced he's not going to run for President in '16."
The Mad Hatter chuckled, "Wonder who got to him, eh?"
"Mitt Romney?" Alice perked up. "He's got really cute sons."
"I'm sure he wants them to stay that way," said the Mad Hatter cryptically.
The White Rabbit looked morose. "Now it's just going to be Jeb Bush and Scott Walker."
"Yes, Jeb Bush, son of George Herbert Walker Bush and brother of George Walker Bush," agreed the Mad Hatter.
"What about Chris Christie?" asked Alice.
The Mad Hatter winked, "Comic relief."
"So it may shape up to be a Clinton-Bush race once again." The White Rabbit sighed. "Globalization, military interventions, Wall Street boot licking""
The Mad Hatter nodded, "Yes, neoliberals and neoconservatives have a lot in common."
The Rabbit shook his head. "We need a Syriza in the US."
Alice agreed. "Yep, you're right. Hillary isn't my type, and Jeb is kind of the Pillsbury Doughboy. But Alex Tsipras is really handsome--I'd vote for that.
Alex Tsipras, the Syriza leader and new Prime Minister of Greece.

The Mad Hatter and the White Rabbit both rolled their eyes before adding. "We would too."
