The thoughts that flit through this aging grey matter in the wee small hours are increasingly strange. Having taken my blood pressure pill and a prozac I settled down to watch the Republican candidates make asses of themselves. Such fun! Here are my thoughts on the line-up.
Rick Santorum - Just as silly and uninformed as he was in the Senate.
Herman Cain - Totally irrelevant.
John Huntman - The only one with a brain; too bad it was infected with conservatism.
Ron Paul - I had to reach for the mute button when he started his 'no government at all' blather. The old geezer is bordering on dementia.
Michelle Bachmann - Looking for the nearest exit sign because that is where she is headed.
Mitt Romney - Made a big mistake catering to the Tea Party because they don't want him; he's GASP one of those. You know, a Mormon. He's trying to recover by defending Social Security. Too little, too late Mitt.
The other Rick (you know, the Perry guy) - Now Mr. Good hair can't be for real. He's the front runner? The guy who makes 2 big gaffs in one statement? He said a whole slew of scientists are coming forward denying Global Warming. Huh? He couldn't name a single one, but he could compare them to Galileo. Stupid man; Galileo was for science and the Church were the deniers. He can't even get his lies right. But he really came up a cropper with calling Social Security a Ponzi scheme. He knows it's true because he wrote it in his book. Wow! I think he just threw all those old people who usually vote Republican off the bus.
That's my analysis and I'm sticking with it.
Tonight it's on to the President's last chance speech.
As an add-on. I wondered if anyone beside me was shocked at the loud cheers and applause when Perry bragged about having the highest execution rate in the country. To date he has presided over 234 executions; the largest of any governor in history (and some of those executed were proven innocent with later DNA tests). I guess that shows the kind of blood thirsty crowd that support these guys.
