They provided laughs

Song, “Send in the Clowns.” Did they ever. Remember? Tens of thousands, by their actions, support and rallies said, “Oh, what an awesome group from which to pick the president of a great nation, a world leader.” They paraded before us the second-worst thing to come out of Texas, first place forever locked up by a guy called “Dubya,” who the party seemed to want to distance themselves from because, I believe, they were embarrassed by his image, and rightfully so.

This was a guy named Perry, can’t remember. There was someone named Pawlenty (?), Bachmann (are you kidding?), Palin ( you are kidding), President Newt? (get real), Santorum, Ron Paul, a 999 guy, Christine the witch lady, I believe (seriously?) and Trump (ugh). From this group, Mitt was deemed the best. Hard not to be the best of such a sorry lot, and he ultimately wasn’t wanted. Suppose they’ll recycle him? Doubt it. But, hey, they provided a lot of laughs and fodder for the comedians. It will be interesting to see what the next circus brings. Coming soon, too soon.
