Musings From The Edge: Bring In The Clowns

As I watch the Republicans scramble for a candidate to put forth against President Obama in next years presidential election I am reminded of the story of the story of the Pied Piper leading the lemmings into the sea.

Their desperation to find someone, anyone, who they believe can defeat the President they have thrown all reasoning aside and grasping for anything. They are saying, in effect, “I will support anyone no matter how smart, how dumb, or what kind of character flaws he may have if he can defeat President Obama.”

Probably the only reasoned voices on the right including that of Ann Coulter has said, “…hold your noses and vote for Mitt Romney.” The Tea Party which the Republicans though were going to be their salvation from the Obama Administration has proven to add to the confusion.

Let’s face it, the Republican party is in shambles in terms of selecting a presidential candidate. Their darling right now is Herman Cain who is so busy trying to dodge accusations of inappropriate behavior to women that he is derailing the entire Republican conversation on the issues. Of course, they probably isn’t a bad thing because every time they try to discuss the issues they end up digging themselves deeper into holes they can’t get out of with a store full of ladders.

Rick Perry is going to shy away from debates because he can’t think fast enough to answers questions ask 15 minutes ago. He is good at putting on shows closely akin to a Foster Brooks drunk routine though.

Herman Cain was ask a question about Medicare at a sit down with Newt Gingrich and stammered around before deferring to Newt.

Newt is just scamming his way through hoping everyone else falls flat and Mitt will choose him as a running mate. Michele Bachmann is an also ran that doesn’t know that she is an also ran and still thinks her Bible verses are relevant.

The only person who is actually qualified on the Republican ticket is Jon Huntsman and 98% of the Republicans do not even know that he exists, or if they do they think he is an undercover Democrat.

This entire process reminds me of a Monty Python parody of “When The Republicans Looked For A Candidate”, which could be similar to a remake of the original “Jabberwocky”. Really funny as hell except that this is supposed to be serious and when the Republicans to end up with a candidate, regardless of who it is, they will unit behind “it”. It doesn’t matter what the idiot stands for, how smart it is, or even if it speaks English, they will unite. That is when all of the jokes need to end and we need to get serious.

The Republicans have been working their plan to perfection in terms of taking over most of the states as well as the House of Representatives. If the Democrats and Independents do not wake up soon we will be living in a combination of a dictatorship and a theocracy.

    I’m beginning to think that as logical and reasonable Canadians that we might need a fence along the U.S. Canada border to keep out all the Republican nuts.

      As a logical and reasonable progressive, I second your idea.

    Great post on the heels of today’s progressive wins sweeping across the country. Randi Rhodes had this to say on today’s broadcast…

    The big message of yesterday’s elections across the country was: Tea Party’s over, folks. It’s last call on Lipton! Squeeze your bag and toss it, teabaggers! You’re about to go down! Though, I admit I will miss the double-entendres. These results bode well for 2012. Usually a bad economy is a death knell for the party in the White House, but voters seem to recognize that, while the economy is bad, the Republicans are far, far worse.

    After their victories in 2010, Republicans all over the country over-reached. Now all Republicans are learning that you can’t get too grabby—just like Herman Cain. When you think about it, Herman Cain’s sexual harassment problems are just par for the course for Republicans. Every time they see an opening, they lunge for it.

    She made a great point that no Republican in her/his right mind (pun intended) would make a run until 2016. Of course, then, the winner will probably have to contend with Joe Biden.

    When people vote against ultra-con policies, you know the tide is turning.

      We can only hope dear heart, we can only hope. Republicans remind me of Tasmanian Devils. They just keep coming, and coming. Their greed is never sated.

        Big difference between Tasmanian devils and Republicans is the devils have a lot more compassion. Great post here old boy.

        Thank for your usually thoughtful post, laser.

        There is yet more good news, friends. I overheard this remark somewhere in the past week from a Republican who plans to vote for Obama: If this is the best we can do, we deserve to lose.
