If I Prayed, I’d Pray for This

In the buildup to the 2012 election, I was fervently hoping to see Michele Bachmann, Rick Perry and other wingnuts in the presidential race. They did not disappoint, of course, giving me endless entertainment. So all I have to say about this is please. Please, please, please, please, please.

    He’d make a great president. For every problem his solution would be “hold it down and give it a mock execution”. I mean, c’mon, what problem can’t be solved with a nice war crime?

    I don’t even want to think about election advertisements right now. Could be PTSD, or just the equivalent of too much turkey. Either way, I’m looking for a nice long respite.

    The country isn’t served by one mediocre reasonable party always going up against 1 batshit crazy party. Actual debate over real ideas to help solve our problems is what’s needed.

    Sadly, doesn’t look we’ll be getting that any time soon.

    The list of delusion wingnuts who aspire to the presidency is long and horrifying. Most are so far out on the right fringe that you used to not even see them in decent society. Allen West just adds his name to that growing list of undistinguished clods.

    I have a prediction to make. If Palin & Bachmann run as the Crazy Wingnut Ladies for Prez in 2016, they will use BTO’s “Ain’t Seen Nothing Yet” for their campaign music without asking BTO or their record company for the rights. After they drop a few million on TV & radio spots, the band will come out and demand that they stop. Don’t forget the Bachmann-Palin Overdrive bumper stickers.

    Any bets? Ed? Anyone?

    Ooh, looks like you’re invoking another extension of Voltaire’s Prayer. Is there room for one more in your prayer circle?

    @12: I really don’t understand your “Mormon individual=hard to say who that individual will support for President” equation. Would you care to elaborate?

    Notice how the start of the sign is obscured by a thumb? In fact it is a notice from a secure facility for wingnuts and is on the door of West’s room “Allan West Resident”, the 2016 refers to the earliest date doctors expect to have made any progress by.
