Here's another one that won't be joining the parade

Mitch Daniels the governor of Indiana will not be joining the circus parade of republican hopefuls. I'm starting to lose track of who isn't running. It's like the Our Gang kids at the swimming hole and no body wants to jump in the water first. What's the matter boys and girls? Is the water too cold for you? I'm sure my fellow blogger Distributorcap could do justice with this concept. Only wish I had the photoshop skills and the time. If you're reading this Dcap I'll start you off.
We have Buckwheat played by Herman Cain.
Darla Hood is Sarah Palin
Butch is Trump after all he wanted to go to the middle east and give somebody a knuckle sandwich.

Now I have to wonder is there enough clown make up to go around this year? Hey guys how about saving some for the real circus. Wouldn't want to let the little boys and girls down when the real circus comes to town.

We're stuck with voting for clowns, it's just a matter of which ones work their way to the top.

We need democratic reform, but that isn't going to happen. We need smart people in our government, not politicians, that isn't going to happen either.

I guess Palin bought a fancy home in Arizona to make her run from. Hell, I'll vote for her just to prove to this country that a woman can't do any better of a job.

That's a good analogy, LOL, but the bully role should definitely go to Newt Gingrich.

BBC, there's a heads they win, tails we lose aspect to knocking politicians and people in government as clowns and no-good SOBs, even though that's too often the case. We're doing the wing nuts' work for them, because they want to demonize government and everyone else in it.

What it does over time is discourage the best, brightest and most decent from going into politics and government and from seeking higher office.

Walter Mondale and Mike Dukakis would've made excellent presidents, IMO. They made one run and that was it. Mario Cuomo wouldn't even give it a try. Why? Then there was Chuck Hagel, probably the least objectionable Republican to show an interest in running for president since Gerald Ford, and he wouldn't try either.

For the answer, look at the all the dirty tricks and sliming the Clintons got from the time Bill announced he was going to run. The scale, depth, nastiness and intensity of it was something to behold. It's easy for good, serious people to decide they don't need that. Why go wading in the cesspool? As for Hagel, he would've gotten that treatment from the radical right in the GOP primary.

When good people are discouraged from running, everyone loses except those who want crooks and liars who can be bought, and ideologues and bullies who will often do the wrong thing without having to be bought.

I liked Clinton, he entertained us with blow jobs. :-)

Smart and wise people don't run for president because they know that they can't change things unless they can do things their way.

The big tent party is the pup tent party. I wonder if those clowns realistically can believe they have a chance.

It's looking to me like anyone has a chance, America has gone insane.

You're right and it sucks BBC!

I'm voting for Froggy just so I can hear SOTUs in that voice.
