What part of “I’m not running for president” don’t the Republicans understand? New Jersey governor Chris Christie has told them for the MILLIONTH time he doesn’t want the job.
If Republicans hadn’t humored Tea Party wackos, they wouldn’t have ended up with the motley collection of fools and misfits who have risen to the top of the party like swamp scum.
Now they’ve got to live with it.
Meanwhile, Sarah Palin in her garish bus is popping wheelies in Walmart parking lots all over Nowhere, USA, trying to get somebody’s attention and praying for the Tea Party to come and beg her to be the savior who drives Obama out of office.
Her requirements for the job are simple:
- No participating in debates
- No interviews or Q&As she hasn’t scripted
- No running in pesky primaries
If Palin had it her way, there would be no election, either. She’d just be anointed — and probably get bored and quit 2 years into her term.
I have no idea how good or bad a governor Chris Christie is (I’m sure reader MorganLF can fill us in), but his refusal to let himself be talked into running seems like a sign of integrity, which is unheard of in a politician.
Of what remains, here’s my feline take …
- Michele Bachmann – Talked herself into oblivion, thank goodness.
- Rick Santorum – Invisible Man.
- Mitt Romney – Sleeps in a coffin.
- Newt Gingrich – Senile.
- Rick Perry – Keeps letting his mouth shoot him in the foot.
- Ron Paul – Flake with a few good ideas.
- Jon Huntsman – My favorite, but reason and common sense doom him.
- Herman Cain – Hmmmm…
Cain’s star is rising, but could the Tea Party ever stomach a race between 2 black cats?
I suspect TPers would stay home in droves on election day, finally dispelling any doubt they’re a bunch of racists. If it came down to casting a vote for ANOTHER black man (I mean, where’s it going to end?), they’d just let Obama stay in the White House.
