If you're not a conservative voter with a dog in this fight, watching Mitt Romney, Newt Gingrich, Rick Santorum, Ron Paul and whoever else is running for the GOP nomination this week try to hold on to front-runner status has been great slapstick, like watching a cruel experiment involving baboons, laughing gas and a forklift. No matter how many times you ring the bell, those poor animals are never going to figure out how to move that pallet of bananas – yet they keep trying, taking the sorry show from one state to the next, over and over, as if something is going to change.
Well, you have to click to read the rest: The Odd Couple: Romney Vs. Gingrich (How the GOP race became a showdown between a walking OCD diagnosis and a flatulent serial adulterer). Pretty compelling subhead too, no?
Thanks to John for the link.
Update: I have to add another paragraph. This is for you, Jenn: After all this time, it ends up being Newt Gingrich? Really? How can a guy who was kicked off the B list in the Nineties be the headline act in 2012? It's like finding out that Eric Roberts has been picked to MC the Oscars.
