GOP: Gone With The Willard?
The anti-Romney members of the 2012 Republican clown college are clownier than ever this weekend. Yesterday they all decided they were running for Vice President. Today, they're back to running for President again. As Newt Gingrich himself would say, "pathetic."
However, we cats will indulge ourselves in a few pre-New Hampshire observations.
Willard Mitt Romney is down almost 10 points from the last Granite State poll we cats paid any attention to. We'd like to know how his folks are going to spin a lower number if and when he wins. Here's the funny thing about this primary: If Willard wins, folks will say it won't matter because he was expected to. If he loses, they'll say it matters a lot, for the same reason. Not a good place to be in, we think.
Oh, please, oh, please, oh, please let one of Rick Santorum's sons turn out to be gay.
We cats still have our crush on Jon Huntsman, sigh. He's not just a Republican who truly puts his "country first" — but by highlighting the baby Huntsmans who are enlisted in the Navy, he took a well-deserved swipe at Willard's 2007 assertion that his five sons serve America by campaigning for him. (Ugh. What a disagreeable memory that is. Think we'll ever see a movie called "The Fighting Romneys"?)
While we're on the topic of LDS guys, here's a question. We thought that Mormons did missions to needy places like Africa. How come Willard got to go to France? Ooh la la, that sounds difficult, not.
Finally, we thought we'd check on our teabagger friends at Free Republic again. We were wondering how they were handling all the reports that Willard was on his way to an early-February coronation. Here's how: They're taking what they call the Scarlett O'Hara pledge: "As God is my witness, I will not vote for Mitt Romney for President." We cats PURR.
