The 2012 election will be interesting. This past Monday, June 13th, the GOP show cased their potential 2012 candidates in a debate televised on CNN. After all the pomp and circumstance, it appears to be a race to the bottom. Sadly, it appears the Mormon is the only sane one in the bunch! 2012 election, interesting indeed!
Michele Bachmann – Appears to be the one that stole the show in the debate. She is the chair of the Tea Party Caucus in congress. She at least had the cojones to admit she was wrong for her historical faux pas on Concord. Contrast this to Sarah Palin, who doubles down on her idiotic statements on history. Her [Sarah Palin] staff, actually tried to get Wikipedia to rewrite history on Paul Revere’s ride to warn the patriots, not the British. Michele Bachmann is seen as part of lunatic fringe.
As the Republican Party prepares to select a candidate they feel can beat President Obama in 2012, they have several viable candidates in mind. One is Governor Mitch Daniels of Indiana. Gov. Daniels was lauded for his speech at the CPAC (Conservative Political Action Committee) in Washington D.C. last month. Which was heavy on dire talk about the state of the economy. He won kudos from conservative stalwarts such as George Will. When asked if he was considering a run for the presidency in 2012 on Meet the Press, he responded with, “I’ve agreed to consider it.” The Republican party needs to commit.
And you thought minstrels were only in black face? Not so, between Sarah Palin and Michele Bachman, high tech minstrelsy is here, and boy, it’s hilarious. The Republican Minstrel show goes on ad hominem. It’s the minstrel show to beat all minstrel shows! You just never know what’s going to come out of their mouths. In all fairness to Sarah Palin, I think Michele Bachmann, the Tea Party darling, is the crazier of the two.
