Break Out The Tiny Violins

Seems the Republicans are having a tough time finding a hot date for the 2012 elections:

The political story of the day appears to be this piece from Mike Allen, noting that “top Republicans are increasingly convinced that President Barack Obama will be easily reelected if stronger GOP contenders do not emerge.” Feeling desperate, the party is turning to a “bland, wonkish” governor, Indiana’s Mitch Daniels, “for an adrenaline boost.”

I’d never even heard of Mitch Daniels. Seems no one has. And with Mittens, The Donald and Pastor Huckabee having dropped the hot potato, all they have left is Newt and the looming specter of Sarah Palin. So it’s no wonder the GOP are having a tough time getting it up.

But this is what happens when you spend decades telling people that the Government is incompetent and full of a bunch of losers: eventually your pool of potential candidates will be reduced to just a wagon load of cretins, sociopaths and fame whores. Who else would want a job where the description is to suck at what you do?

It’s so bad they’re looking over third stringer governors no one’s heard of to run against Barack “I Killed Bin Laden” Obama. Good luck with that.
