You get your humor where you can

I guess I’m being a little mean here, but I’m having fun watching the Republicans try to find “the candidate”. All kinds of Republicans are coming out of the woodwork. Hagel may run. Rudy is running. McCain is running. Mitt is running. Fred Thompson may run. Newt may run. There are others, but these are the ones who come to mind right now.

In a comical way, watching the Republicans try to find the right candidate is like watching a desperate team playing a game of darts. They are throwing every dart they have at the bull’s eye on the dartboard. They’re even throwing the darts with blunt tips or no tips at all. Even if they know they won’t stick they are flailing those darts as hard as they can hoping against hope that maybe, just maybe, one might stick.

They are looking for someone who loves Jesus, will keep them safe from terrorists and hates abortions and gay rights. They are looking for another george bush-like person but without the george bush-iness.

Who knows who they will finally have to settle for, but it is kind of fun watching them play the game.

One other quick thought
We heard all the hype last week about the time change and how it would wreck havoc with computers, but has anyone heard of one single problem that actually resulted from the change. My computer adjusted the change all by itself, much to my delight.

Yes...the Republicans are having a 'high' time of it aren't they? I didn't have a problem at all with the time factor for the PC.

I am wondering who the religious right will back? Brownback maybe?

Are you a fellow dart player? :) I used to be pretty good until I settled down.

RE: the Reps, it is amusing to watch them try to settle on a candidate. Each appeals to some narrow constituency, but none to the broader pack. You'd think GWB would be the easiest act in the world to follow. Go figger.

Seriously, they couldn't win if Jesus H. Christ hisself was a registered Republican and was running.

The elephants are screwed for 2008.

Me? I'm voting for whoever comes across as flat out crazy. So far, that looks to be any number of candidates.....

If this is the best the Repugs have to offer, then it is pitiful.
Of course, I don't care who they run, I'll be voting for the Democrat whoever he/she may be. Could anyone do a worse job than George W.

I did have some computer problems on Sunday, but it was cleared up by Monday, except for the time. I guess it will "spring forward" in about 3 weeks.

Have a good day.

So far, they have three adulterers and a flip-flopper. Comical.....

I visualized not only throwing darts, but anything that would fly - lipstick tubes, false teeth and shoes. I want them to run someone who turns out to be a closet gay who secretly owns an abortion clinic.

As for the computer, I had no problem and haven't heard of any major problems that are attributed to the time change.

I had to laugh when I saw a report on TV the other night where they were going down the list of potential GOP candidates. When they mentioned Fred Thompson they showed footage of him on the set of L&O as he delivered the line "ridiculous", which seemed to me an ironic description of his chances.

hmmm... Three Adulterers and A Flip-Flopper... if none of them gets the nomination maybe they should consider going on the Gong-Show...

as did my computer- and my cell phone. unfortunately, all of the actual clocks in the house that run on batteries- had to be changed by me :) hopefully, they'll fix that someday :)

our macs and pc are all set to get "time" from the internet, so, no problem at all. i read a suggestion a while back that a time signal be transmitted with, or on top of, electric power. wouldn't help with battery powered clocks, but anything that plugged in would adjust itself, especially after a power loss. microwave ovens, stoves, tvs etc.

about the republicans.....ha ha ha ha.

No probs with the puter, but those clocks sure caused some troubles. Most people were late for work, with the exception of those that used the cell phones as an alarm.

As for as the thugs go, it is funny to watch. But get this, the idiot that we call a Sin-ator, David Vitter, has made his endorsement of Rudy official. Time to try and figure out what he gets in return.

Mitt Romney is a blunt tip.
I get my entertainment from reading his foreign policy aspirations.

My computer, cable, and cell phone all behaved themselves.

I do have one friend with an older computer but her problems were minor.

Fred Thomson? Give me a break. I'm a huge Law and Order fan and I don't like him there either.

I have a dream that at some future Republican debate some panelist asks the question: OK, everyone here who has NEVER cheated on a spouse raise your hand.

Yes, we shall see who they pick and then vote against him, since you know it will be a HIM.

I might vote for a Republican. Rep. Ron Paul who is RINO. Really a Libertarian.

I wouldn't count the Republicans out. 'Specially ifin they are doing da countin'. And ifin that don't work, they can call on 5 good friends who like to wear robes to work.

Peace.

My great fear is that they'll put Jeb in. Oh.My.Gawd. And you know the neocon fundies will vote for him, too! Oh.My.Gawd.

I do get the feeling that a lot of candidates are coming to the front,and I look like why. I just don't know.

Fred Thompson may run.

To quote the former Senator from one of his own movies...

"This will get out of hand...and we'll be lucky to live through it."

And the movie is?

LOL That is so funny, but so true. They must be desperate if Newt is considering running. Why dn't they drag Colin Powell back to tell a few lies for them?

If they have someone who follows the policies of Hitler or Stalin then the Religious Nuts will vote for them.

I don't believe anyone wants Der Fuehrer Bush's brother Jeb as the next Dictator.

Than again, Der Fuehrer Bush doesn't really have too step down once he declares Martial Law and suspends the Constitution, now does he?

God Bless

Maybe those "Half-Hour Snooze-Hour" clips with Limbagh and Coultier were actually tests to see how their base responded? THat'd be so much fun if the Limbaugh/Coultier '08 ticket were anounced!!! THe debates would be nothing but calling Edwards a fag, Obama/Osama and Hillary a feminazi. And we all know consservatives can't get enough of celebrity leaders.

Great blog by the way - my first time here.

W.Bush is not eligible and Attila the Hun is long gone and never were an American. So, what the hell is there to worry about? Things are bound to improve. Aren't they? Please, tell me they are!

Hill stole my thunder....I predict they'll go with Jeb.....

Fred Thompson was a better actor when he was in the Senate than he is on L and O......he's really bad....

I like this one (from Bryan)

Not surprisingly, a joke is making the Beltway rounds: “A lonesome Republican voter is accosted by a gunman in the dead of night. The gunman points his weapon at the hapless voter and asks: ‘Who will you vote for? Romney? McCain? Or Giuliani?’

The Republican thinks deeply, then shrugs and says: ‘OK. Go ahead and shoot me!’”


I just hope I’m saying the same thing come voting day in 2008 on the Democratic side. *wink*

Brownback scares the brown out of me, but im a Liberal, hes supposed to. It is fun watching both sides shooting themselves in the foot from time to time

Ha! KarenMcl beat me to it; I was just about to post that joke.

The fact is that any Republican, or any Democrat, who runs for president and wins in 2008 will find that, in fact, George W. Bush is still in charge, whether or not he is still (or ever was) president. I'm in my late fifties, and it will take the rest of my days for a succession of presidents to undo Bush's damage, if indeed that is possible. The next president, whoever s/he is, will be neck-deep in muck left behind by George. It's not fun to contemplate.
