No, no, no, Michael: It’s Ron Paul who doesn’t have a chance. Didn’t you see the babbling bimbo on CNN who said, shortly before the Maine caucus results were announced, that if Ron didn’t win in Maine, he would be out of the running? Well, Ron ended up with 36% of the votes (compared to neighboring Romney’s 39%), while Gingrich had an impressive 6% tally. Perhaps you and I just don’t understand “new math,” but if we did, we’d see that Ron’s 600% higher score than Newt’s disqualifies Ron, but keeps Newt in the running, right?
I still expect the establishment’s stable of Romney, Santorum, and Gingrich to keep playing this indecisive game of musical chairs up until the convention, when the owners’ real choice — Jeb Bush — will be offered as a “compromise” candidate! I wonder how many members of the boobeoisie will, by that time, still have a warm spot in their hearts for their high school civics teacher who taught them to recite Dr. Pangloss‘s catechism that “All is for the best in this best of all possible worlds?”9:26 pm on February 11, 2012 Email Butler Shaffer
