IS THIS THE WORST PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE POOL OF ALL-TIME?

Rep Michelle “Crazy” Bachmann of Minnesota, Mississippi governor Haley “Boss Hogg Jr” Barbour, Herman “I’se So Damn Happy To Be Off The Democrats Plantation” Cain, Indiana governor Mitch “Maybe I’ll Run, Maybe I Won’t” Daniels, and Newt “Three Wives and Counting” Gingrich, religious zealot and former Arkansas governor Mike “Chubb Rock” Huckabee, former Worst VP Candidate Ever  Sarah “I Can See Clearly Now” Palin, Rep Ron “Loon Sr” Paul of Texas, former Minnesota governor Tim “Mr Charisma” Pawlenty, former Massachusetts governor Mitt “I Was For Healthcare Reform Before I Was Against It” Romney, and Donald ***** of Planet His Head Is Up His A**.

I hope and pray that I’m wrong, but something tells me that the Republican primary campaign, even if Sarah Palin and Donald ***** don’t actually run, is going to make 2008 look like a love-in. Let’s be frank about one thing: Palin and *****’s vitriolic talk about President Obama’s birthplace – long accepted that he was born in Honolulu, Hawaii but anyone with the sense Go gave a seedless grape – is blatant RACISM. Nothing more, nothing less. And anyone who says it isn’t, is a lying sack of s**t as evidenced by this Californian Republican official under fire for e-mailing “joke” of Obama as a chimpanzee article.  

Apparently, the next phase of Donald *****’s pseudo-campaign for the presidency – after “launching” it with a naked appeal to the GOP’s lunatic, blatantly racist  fringe of “birthers” – is  to brag his way  “I’m richer than Romney” to the nomination.

RANDOM THOUGHTS

The stunned “Nobody told me about any deal on raising the debt limit ceiling” look on Paul Ryan’s face yesterday when he was asked about Treasury Secretary Geithner’s assertion that members of Congress conveyed this view to President Obama on Wednesday at the White House – “I sat there with them, and they said, we recognize we have to do this. And we’re not going to play around with it,” Geithner said. “We know that the risk would be catastrophic. It’s not something you can take too close to the edge.” – was absolutely priceless.

The “Celebrity/Political Culture” when find ourselves in today is the only reason why Donald ***** is leading GOP polls at this time. Nothing more, nothing less. He has no message other than anger and bluster and no platform to run on other than “I, I, I…”and because more people know who he is compared to legitimate politicians with track records and real accomplishments like say, Tim Pawlenty and Mitt Romney, he gets a lot of attention. But, there’s no way ***** is going to run, let alone be the Republican nominee in 2012 because running for president is a day-to-day humbling grind which someone like ***** isn’t going to do at this point in his life.

Something tells me that many, if not most of the GOP freshmen representatives are going to be “one and done” if they do the adult thing – vote to raise the debt ceiling for one example – and not some of the crazy things The pressure’s on House Republican freshmen they ran on last year.

You may not realize this, but the recent problems with air traffic controllers is the end result of when Ronald Reagan fired all of them during his first term. The dominoes have finally fallen in a system that has never truly recovered from that incredibly stupid decision.

If the NBA playoffs were formatted like March Madness, the Lakers, Magic and Spurs would be packing up their lockers and preparing for summer vacations later today.

I’ll bet you dollars to donuts that you didn’t know that you were watching history being made at the Staples Center yesterday. There have been over 3,300 NBA playoff games and when he had 33 points, 14 assists and 7 rebounds, New Orleans’ Chris Paul became only the 4th player to do so in a playoff game. You may have heard of the other three: Oscar Robertson (twice), Walt Frazier and Magic Johnson.

Do his teammates and friends really call Kobe Bryant “Black Mamba” or even “Mamba”?

When LA Clippers owner Donald T. Sterling says, “So, sue me”, it’s not a dare, it’s a strategy.
