There are those who say that we should root for a sane Republican to win the primary, because all that matters in a general election is the economy and if it’s in the tank, we want Generalissimo Romney not Generalissimo Perry to become president. Sometimes I feel happy that Republicans will probably put a possibly unelectable lunatic up as their nominee, sometimes I feel sad that said lunatic may be the final nail in this NASCAR nation’s coffin.
Super Dave Osborne used to go on David Letterman and read inappropriate jokes from a book that was supposed to be inspirational. One went like this…a man with a talking dog walks into a bar. He bets the bartender 100 bucks his dog can say “pour me another beer”. The bartender takes the bet, the dog says it, and the guy collects 100 bucks. He gives the dog 20 of the 100 he collected, then drinks his beer. When he goes outside, he finds his dog in the road humping another dog. He says “Fido, I’ve never seen you do that before”. Fido says “I’ve never had 20 bucks before.”
Democrats have never won a presidential election because of a weak Republican nominee before. No Republican nominee has ever called Social Security a “monstrous lie” and a “Ponzi scheme” before.
