The Crystal Ball Darkens

I’m starting to wonder if money magnet Jeb has what it takes to be a nominee. The campaign is about to be strangled in its crib. Not only is he a blithering idiot, his candidacy may be illegal. I have assumed up until recently that there would be a Serious Choice, perhaps incorrectly. That choice is nowhere in sight. This could be the funniest and most lopsided election we’ve had since the Dukakis flameout.

OK, Conservatives Can Be Funny

Hugh Hewitt, known as a “smart” conservative and gatekeeper, said the funniest fucking thing today. While outdone in the laughter department by Ben Carson and Ted Cruz, it’s his turn to bring the hilarity:

Saying it’s “obvious,” best-selling author and national talk show host Hugh Hewitt is urging all of the nearly two dozen potential Republican presidential candidates to pick 2012 GOP nominee Mitt Romney as their vice presidential choice. 

This is the kind of unintentional joke I live for.

Well, this is what happens when you run third-stringers for President, Republicans. Your whole field is like a New York sports team in the  90’s; they blow chunks so you buy an expensive, yet aging veteran to bring star power motivation. Except in this case it won’t do any good. Can you really consider Mitt Romney a leading light? You sure about this?

God damn,”The Queen” is gonna cream ya.

The Great White Hope

Up until recently, Scott Walker has enjoyed a robust presence in the presidential race, even though he hasn’t declared yet. He’s playing very coy about his views, trying to remain the least controversial choice. A Serious Contender. No more:

Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker defended his decision to sign a law in Wisconsin mandating ultrasounds for women before they get abortions, calling ultrasounds “just a cool thing out there.”

In an interview on “The Dana Show,” the Wisconsin Republican and 2016 presidential hopeful boasted to host Dana Loesch, “We defunded Planned Parenthood, we signed a law that requires an ultrasound. Which, the thing about that, the media tried to make that sound like that was a crazy idea.”

Defending the legislation against what he called the “gotcha” media, Walker said, “Most people I talk to, whether they’re pro-life or not, I find people all the time who’ll get out their iPhone and show me a picture of their grandkids’ ultrasound and how excited they are, so that’s a lovely thing. I think about my sons are 19 and 20, you know we still have their first ultrasound picture. It’s just a cool thing out there.”

Guilting women into an unwanted pregnancy is “a cool thing”. That is, if you can find a doctor to violate your reproductive rights in Wisconsin. This will not play with moderates. I want to know-how can Scott Walker be a contender for president when he is ruining his home state? Is the plan to fuck the state dry and then move on to destroying the federal government? Methinks so.
