Can it be less than a week ago that I celebrated Newtie flinging himself onto the field of battle with all the self-possession of someone who feels (felt) entitled to be President of these United States? Hell, compared to the "Trump-eting Hare", maybe he is (was) a viable candidate. We are talking about the Republican ticket.
But now it appears it's all over....except for the shouting. And all he did was speak the truth. Dismantling Medicare and Social Security while leaving billionaires and mega-corporations off limits as fellow funders of those things society requires, is a radically damaging game plan for the country. Any country, any time, any where, any how!
Why is that not obvious to Boehner and Cantor? Have they never heard of Sisyphus?
All the chortling and chuckling from the left has to irritate the hell out of serious minded conservatives who thought even a twice divorced, thrice married hypocrite who was a former House Speaker might lend an air of verisimilitude to an otherwise unprepossessing field of potential candidates.
The field remains delightfully unprepossessing.
I just hope it hasn't discouraged Michelle Bachmann, Sarah Palin or Rick Santorum. They may be my last hopes for a few months of Grade A entertainment.
