Obama and the Republican Debate Team
by Donna Schoenkopf
It has occurred to me that the Republican field that we see weekly in debates is not particularly awful compared to what Republicans always have as candidates. Just turn back the pages in your memory to the Republican candidates of 2008:
John McCain: Alternately angry or boring.
Mike Huckabee: Personable and willing to sell his soul for a good paying job on FOX.
Mitt Romney: Same guy this time as he was then, with a little more polish this time. I get the feeling he's been practicing for three years.
Ron Paul: Another re-run. Throw out the whole damn government. The real "Death Squad" answer to health care.
Fred Thompson: Asleep at the switch. Old and tired.
Alan Keyes: Raving maniac. "Christ would not vote for Barack Obama. . ."
Sam Brownback: Who? What? Huh?
Tom Tancredo: The real raving maniac. Super racist. Said Sotomayor was a member of the KKK.
So my point is: Since Barack Obama's been our President, everybody else looks like a bunch of stupid losers. And they are.
