Crazy Shelly Wins
The Iowa Caucus is over and I, for one, am glad. I didn't bother with it much because I wrote off what the GOP seems to be passing off as candidates is a not very funny and very sick joke on the American people long ago. To find a decent brain among them, we'd have to resurrect Diogenes with his lamp -- and he probably couldn't find one,
Michelle Bachmann won the straw poll despite her favoring throwing elders under the bus. If any of y'all saw the debate, she actually said that she wished that our country had defaulted. That's the kind of sick, mean-spirited people who are populating the Republican party today. Mit Romney says that corporations are people. Sarah Palin showed up with Polk-a-dot toenails -- how Presidential -- and keeps saying she's not running. (If she isn't, why in the hell was she there?) Meanwhile Rick Perry tossed his hat in the ring after his rally for bigots in Houston. From what I've read so far, he makes Dubya look like a Rhodes Scholar. Tim Pawlenty figured out that he wasn't wanted and Rick Santorum should be leaving the stage any minute. Ron Paul, who came in second, seems to have a nodding acquaintance with sanity and reality but is that enough?
I guess time will tell. And for me, it's just a question of who I'm going to be campaigning against and what organization(s) will get my time.
