The Republican Clown Show Rolls On

Republican presidential candidates are good for entertainment, and little else.

The payroll tax cut that Speaker of the House John Boehner called "chicken shit" in the GOP House caucus would save the average American $1,000 per year. A grand doesn't mean much to the speaker or his banker and billionaire buddies but to working families that's a lot of money. John Boehner's idea of soaking the rich is to jump in a hot tub with them after 18 holes.

I betchya $10,000 that working families know that former Gov. Mitt Romney doesn't care about their financial problems. Mitt Romney speaks French. Does that make him a cheese-eating surrender monkey?

The GOP flying circus pitched its big top in Iowa last night. It was fun watching Mitt Romney juggle his positions on healthcare; former Speaker Newt Gingrich swallowing a sword inflamed by his own rhetoric, and Gov. Rick Perry driving the clown car.

The Donald jumps off another one of his ships just before it sinks. First, his presidential campaign and then his own debate. Things are really bad for Trump when even the clowns in the GOP presidential race don't want to be in the same room with him.

Gingrich went to New York City to see The Donald and conveniently Tiffany's is right next to Trump Tower. While in NYC, Gingrich had breakfast, lunch, and dinner at Tiffany's. Where do you think Newt will be doing his Christmas shopping this year anyway? By the way President Obama got what he wanted for Christmas. Newt Gingrich.

Gingrich's campaign is deeply in debt and he was in hock big time to Tiffany's. And he calls himself a fiscal conservative. Gimme a break! Gingrich doesn't know much about family values but he did stay in a Holiday Inn Express last night.

I watched the Newt Gingrich-Jon Huntsman debate debacle. Do you think anybody will remember their debate 150 years from now? I don't think so. Abraham Lincoln and Stephen Douglas have nothing to worry about.

Rush Limbaugh would rather hug it out with Secretary of State Hillary Clinton than read this post. Bill O'Reilly would rather watch Keith Olbermann. Glenn Beck would rather see a Michael Moore movie than read this. A Tea Party-er would rather hook up with an Occupy-er.
