Our Savior And An Almond Joy?

In an amazing confirmation that Republicans have learned nothing, we have this headline:

Mitt Romney Wins GOP Presidential Straw Poll

So we have the grandfather of Bobocare picked to show us how we can make it work for the whole country? Even though it's bankrupting Massachusetts, causing chaos in the insurance industry, and jeopardizing the health care of most people in the Bay State. Congratulations, GOP, your beans are baked.

Oh, and John McCain is likely to be re-elected in the Copper State, which begs the question, just where are the coppers when you need them?

And here's something even more amazing – Romney wasn't even at the Republican conclave. He decided it would be a lot more fun to promote his book.

OK, I can't blame him for that. I mean if he went, he'd have to look at and maybe even talk to a lot of Republicans.

Now I know it would be hard to top those first two bits of news, but if anyone can do it, Republicans can… so guess who finished second? No, not her. No, not him. They're pikers in the "Nut" category. Think hard shell!

Here's another clue… sometimes you feel like a nut   ?

And a lot of Republicans apparently did so the picked Ron Paul.

Had enough?

Then this should kill ya… Romney beat Paul by one single vote. Oh if only Zak had been there instead of arguing with me, huh?

Well, so just don't say I didn't do my part!

By the way, here's the rest of the field:

Gingrich, Mike Huckabee, Gary Johnson, Palin, Tim Pawlenty, Mike Pence, and Rick Santorum.

I could feel a tingle go right up my leg… and nearly stop my heart.

And does anybody know who Gary Johnson is? I mean I'm sure he's every bit as worthy as the rest to be there, it's just that if I knew who he was, I'd probably think he was more worthy!

But now take heart… Bill Frist won the poll in 2006 and he was a physician. How does the saying go, "As a politician, he'd make a great doctor?"

I leave you with the byte of the day:

“In the technical sense, in the economic definition, he is not a socialist, he’s a corporatist,” – Ron Paul, referring to the Kenyan-in-Chief.

That makes me feel better.. if we can't stop him, at least we can classify him more accurately.

About tedwest

A longtime veteran of comedy and political forums, I decided that I needed a more restful venue because... well... I finally hate everybody. Except my wife that is... and my ex-wife.. and... no, that's about it. I lead about as simple a life as one can, preferring activities that include anything that doesn't involve going out and seeing YOU! And I particularly enjoy what I call "Get the Bitch" movies on Lifetime. You know the ones where the intended victim finally does something so incredibly stupid that she forfeits her right to live, and from that moment on you're rooting for the stalker. Of course, it rarely works out the way you want, but when it does, the feeling you get is... well, there's nothing else like it, other than, maybe, eating chocolate chip cookies. Oh, and I'm proudly anti-wildlife, both foreign and domestic, and anti-environment - especially foreign environments. I think Howard Stern put it best when he said, "If fifty percent of the population died tomorrow, I can live with that." And I feel the same about the other fifty percent, so together, we've pretty much got it all covered.

  1. I don't see anyone that should be elected that has a probability of being elected. Don't expect me to support Romney…

  2. TedWest says:

    I had the same discussion with Burt Prelutsky, so I thank you for providing an opportunity to name drop. Anyway, he mentioned that he could get behind Perry, Ryan or Bachmann. I mentioned that I might be able to get behind Bachmann if you get my drift, but that I was unsure about supporting any of them for President. Then he assigned me the code name "Yed," and himself "Yid" in order to facilitate future communications.
