Fun and games at Perry’s expense

I just watched Jim Hightower on the Rachel Maddow Show. The guy is hilarious. I’d laugh harder if what he said wasn’t so true. At least he has no problem calling a melon head a melon head. To make matters more interesting Perry plans to skip some debates. That ought to be fun. The remaining buffoons will tee off on him for 2 hours. I’m betting he skips exactly one debate.

The Republican Field

It’s been 17 months and political theater is humming in fine style. The Republican contenders for the presidential nomination can only be described as a pack of buffoons. I don’t even know where to start. There’s Mitt Romney who is a serial liar who can’t maintain a position on anything for more than 10 minutes. Herman Cain is hawking a book and pretending to be a candidate. Rick Perry is an empty suit, and one that’s way too big at that. Santorum is all about the gays, gays, gays. Bachmann is just plain nuts. Gingrich is a large gas bag. Paul has never seen any part of the government he doesn’t hate, except of course his job a a representative for 14 years. Huntsman is a smart guy,,,,in the wrong party.
