Adam's Batshit Crazy Republican Presidential Candidates Roundup

Posted by Adam54 on Thursday, May 26, 2011

Edited: This goes well beyond Michelle Bachmann now. Aside from maybe Jon Huntsman, they're all just nuts. This is the place to keep track of them all!

If America elects Sarah Palin, it will be abundantly clear that America just wasn't ready to be let out on it's own and we will be forced to take you back into care.

That'll be rubbish because you guys would walk the medal table in the Commonwealth games.

I'm still not sure Palin's running.  Last year when she would keep the idea alive because she would never deny she was running, I thought she wouldn't run but wanted people to think she might because it kept her more in the public eye (I don't mean that to be cynical, it's just that after leaving the governorship of Alaska she had basically become a professional celebrity, and she made money off of people still being interested in her).  But now she's been doing this act for a whole year (or it seems like it; not sure how long it's been), and yesterday it struck me that maybe she has to run now.  Donald Trump only did the "maybe I'll run" thing for like a month, she's been doing it for a year.  Will it just seem ridiculous now if she declares she's not running?  On the other hand, Trump hit it a lot harder during that month than Palin has at any time, until maybe this recent bus tour.  Trump seemed ridiculous when he declared he wasn't running, but it fit his persona.  Palin also seems ridiculous, but in a much different way.  Maybe she has to run, just to keep up appearances (if she does run, I think it will mostly be to further her non-political career, not because she thinks she can win (or even wants to, possibly)).  If I were to lay odds, it would still be in favor of her not running.  That still makes the most sense, in light of her recent Pro-America bus tour, which she claims is not for publicity (that's obviously a lie) and not part of any plans to run for president (quite possibly true).  This type of tour makes sense if she's not running, because it keeps people wondering if she'll run and keeps her in the spotlight.  If she is planning on running, it makes less sense.  People who plan to run may dance with the whole announcement thing for a while, but they usually get to it in a fairly quick timeframe compared to what Palin has been doing.  Every other person who would be considered even a remote contender has announced whether they are running or not, as far as I know.  Palin is a divisive figure.  She can get on the news pretty easy.  If she were running, she doesn't really have to string out the announcement to stay interesting.  If she isn't running, she does have to do something alternative to running, which I think is what she's doing.

Having to debate this version of her will probably frustrate the hell out of republicans and democrats alike.

She'll run her election campaign for five or six months, but then she'll quit because she'll decide that she needs to devote more time to her family and that she can better help America if she is not President, all the while claiming that she totally would have been elected if she had decided to continue her campaign.

Maybe she'll claim asshole Americans still aren't ready for a woman president.

I think she should run for vice president again; that'd be funny.  It also makes me wonder: has anyone ever gotten so famous for running for vice president?  It would be a question for one of those presidential scholars.

Quayle was pretty famous, mostly for being super-dumb.

Reminds of a first season Farscape ep I just watched.

This week Rick Santorum commented that he was against an exception against abortions to save the life/health of the mother because he thought they were "phony."

I hereby invite Sen. Santorum to prove it by volunteering to have an embryo planted in his abdomen, since you don't need a uterus to have an ectopic pregnancy, and then offer an opinion. Asshat.

My American ex-wife was anti-abortion and once tried to engage me in a debate about it.  Now, unlike the good Dr Ake MD I am no man of medicine but even I could see that some of the things she was using to justify her stance had no medical basis in fact whatsoever. 

I have no problem with somebody being against abortion on moral or religious grounds, that is entirely their own look out, but to then repeat - parrot fashion - untruths, made up facts and plain lies to support the position was something special.

Because I am a small minded, petty and viscious man I let the debate start up again in the presence of my friend who had read Medicine at Oxford, finished his A&E duty and was a couple of years into his career as a surgeon.  I then sat back and enjoyed the show.

Sometimes I wonder why we aren't married anymore..... but then, I drink quite a lot.

 Actually, the way he calls her his "American ex-wife" makes me wonder if there's some sort of global collection of ex-wives. Though none from France, of course.

It's actually like a global "Dalty's Angels". He just had to give each one a "test-run" before he gave them clearance.

 Anybody watch the debate tonight? According to the local paper, the highlights were that everyone was nice to each other, Michelle Bachmann said nothing outrageously crazy in her loud shrill voice, it was a calm discussion and they all hate the man in the White House. 

Oh, and Bachmann officially threw her crazy hat in the ring. I really really really hope she pulls a Palin now and resigns so she can make herself some extra money. That'd be peachy.

The last time everyone hated the man in the White House was the last time there was a man in the White House.  The only solution is to put a woman in the White House.  Once a woman is in the White House, there will be no man in the White House to hate.  Everyone will be able to start hating the woman in the White House.

America is not going to be satisfied with a president until someone or something swoops in and solves all America's problems.  Whoever is president when this happened will be a president beloved of the people.

As far as I know, the highest approval rating for a president in recent history was right after 9/11.  We need something like that again.

More specifically, when we invaded Afghanistan/Iraq in response to 9/11. Even more specifically, when W. announced victory 1 day into a 10 year war.
