Hardly An Endangered Species: Homo Sapiens Politicus Idioticus

It's a brand new year, and the election campaign grinds on in the United States (someone tell me November's coming early this year). And as we all know, the day after the election is done with, the pundits are going to be talking about the 2016 election.

It never ends!!!!

Anyway, the first of the primaries are at hand (more on them in the next election blog), and the Republicans have continued their travelling circus, while the President waits, watches, and gathers together ammunition to dismantle whoever actually gets the nomination. Memo to the GOP: you guys are doing all the work for the Democrats, you do realize that?

Since we last went through this, the Bloated Ego (otherwise known as Donald Trump) cancelled his moderation of a debate, musing on the notion of running as an indie candidate. No one else has dropped out yet, but political fortunes have declined, none quite so much as Newt Gingrich, who only a month ago looked like he'd do the impossible and clinch the nomination. Things change, don't they?

And so with Gingrich beginning to fall by the side of the road, like Michelle, Sarah, and the Second Coming of Ross Perot before him, it appears yet again that Governor Mittens is going to get the nomination. This despite the fact that many in the party desperately wish someone else was running.

I've called it a travelling circus. And it really is. I've also asked the question before in these blogs... is this pack the best the Republicans can come up with?

Of course, the media and the party at large have pretty much ignored Ron Paul, who's something of a crackpot, but has managed to stay in the thick of things. The question remains, will he wear an old outfit to the final night of the party nominations? Or will that one stay hidden in the panic room, never to see the light of day?

American elections: the never ending process by which the rest of the free world looks at, and sighs a deep sigh of relief. After all, we do have our own problems, but at least we don't have to deal with that.


  1. Newt crossing? Nott Romney? Yep...the GOP's doing the Democrats' work for them. Obama can just phone in his campaign.

    Thanks for the laugh.I needed it after the Great Google Disaster of 2012!

  2. What a way to start out the New Year!

  3. Gosh, it only seems last year that Mr Obama became the president. Not that I know much about US politics, but I do enjoy watching the feet stomping debates.

    Happy New Year.

  4. I think if it takes four years to have the people "like" you, then there's something wrong.

    Great blog...

  5. It's going to be so obnoxious no matter who is elected, and yes, it never ends!!!

  6. I'm planning on gouging out my eyes before going into the polling booth for the primaries. Plugging my ears and chanting la-la-la-la-la I can't hear you, may also be involved. I'll let you know how that works for me.

  7. Besides the Presidential Election Circus we're trying to recall our Governor in Wisconsin so we have double the fun!

  8.'s good to be able to post here again. Due to a Google hiccup, I lost my entire Google account, blogs included, for a whole day.

    Wait a minute...I did comment here...oops!

  9. William,

    Great post as always! Love the cartoons! Hilarious! And yes, our choice of candidates...we're in trouble! Maybe we can pretend they don't exist?? Not likely. Newt won't let us forget! Take care!

  10. I'm already getting lots of fodder from the Iowa and New Hampshire primaries for the next one...

  11. I have to admit, I kind of want Mitt Romney to win the Republican nomination because I think he's going to get his ass torn apart by President Obama in the debates. The Republicans have an opportunity to seize the White House back and they're blowing it with lame candidates.

  12. They ran out of good candidates when Christie told them to get off his lawn or he'd get his gun.
