Down another one

Rick Santorum, not the craziest but philosophically the worst of the GOP candidates, is out. He got everything he deserved, including the votes of the worst of American society, the crazy-racist-Christian crowd.

That leaves, among those you've heard of, anyway, Gingrich and Paul. Gingrich is now the philosophically worst, and Paul the craziest, with Romney a distant third in the idiot-non-savant competition. He will probably -- ok, virtually certainly -- be the Republican candidate. All that remains is to see what kind of imbecile he chooses to run with. My predictions, all negative, are that it will not be Sarah Palin, Gingrich, or Ron Paul. McCain is too old and has too much baggage. Cheney has a new heart but, let's hope, not many years to go. So who does that leave? You name it. I'm available, and if they need someone to visit foreign governments and say things off-script to embarrass a Republican administration, I'd love the job, but somebody would just shoot me, most likely.
