I'm so disappointed. The Republican Presidential race has been so entertaining, and now it's almost over. I was really hoping we'd still have Michelle Bachman, Herman Cain, and Rick Perry to marvel at when the show came to our state, but it looks like there'll be hardly anyone left when they get here. Santorum is about done, Newt may flame out at any moment, Paul will probably keep hanging around (but his squirreliness has gotten old) and frankly, Mitt is a bore.
I think if I were a kinder person I'd feel pity for the poor Republicans. How on earth could you pick one from that lineup? I mean, come on! Cain, Bachman, and Perry were the most bizarre trio I've ever seen. So they were eventually eliminated. Santorum can only get support from the real fanatics from the religious side - the ones who don't care if he can win or not, but will support him to the end anyway. The Paul kids are totally dedicated to ideals they don't understand - but so what? Legalize drugs! The Newt supporters are the real puzzling ones for me. After all, we've all been disillusioned by someone we trusted, whether a political figure, sports hero, or anyone else. It's tough to take when we find out we've been duped. But why would anyone deliberately align themselves with someone who has already proven to be corrupt? And with Newt, as I've said before, he's demonstrably corrupt across the board: in his financial dealings, his professional career, and even his personal life. Go figure.
So the winner is..........Mitt! May I quote Andy Borowitz? "Ron Paul believes 100 per cent of what he says. Gingrich believes 0 per cent of what he says. And Romney says 100 per cent of what he believes his audience wants to hear".
It's really to early to be talking about the election, but in case anyone would like to see a quick summation of what President Barack Obama has accomplished to far, take a look at www.pinaldemocrats.org.
