Also Hilarity, Glee, Chortling, Milk Sneezes, and Schadenfreude

“With Governor Daniels deciding over the weekend not to run, it is slowly dawning on the Republican mind that the party’s choice may effectively come down to Mitt Romney or Tim Pawlenty. This prospect produces a range of emotions running from disappointment to panic.” [NRO]


Paul Ryan, friend of Scott Walker Koch Sucker, the man who wants to kill Grammie’s Medicare.

Oh okay. Yeah that’ll play well.

I’m pretty sure the Paultards are disappointed that Ron Paul wasn’t mentioned. He’d be a viable candidate because he’d be 76 in 2012 and his ideas are even older than that… plus they got a blimp!

@ManchuCandidate: I miss the blimp. I miss paultards. They’re models of responsible civic thinking compared to what we’ve got now.

@Benedick HRH KFC:
They were fun to argue with and provided moments of absolute incompetent hilarity.

@Benedick HRH KFC: @ManchuCandidate: If it’s any consolation, Ron Paul is tracking better than Rick Perry in Texas.

@ManchuCandidate: Are you thinking of Huckabee? I’m not aware of any similar issues with Pawlenty.

@Benedick HRH KFC: If you keep writing awful truths like that, I’m going to have to start drinking before noon.

@nojo: To be fair, everyone tracks better than Rick Perry, but he keeps winning elections because they all run against him at the same time.

@texrednface: Pawlenty’s willie. I thought you meant something very different.

@ManchuCandidate: @texrednface: Yikes. Between ruling on pardons and balancing a state budget (even if only on the backs of city and county governments), governors carry a lot of baggage as presidential candidates.

@Benedick: Paultards are so 2007. Today’s RepubliKKKans are tackling the nation’s real problems: The Mooslems, the Messicans, the Hummuhssseckshals, the Handmaids, the Econowives, the Saucer People, and the Reverse Vampires.

@mellbell: Interesting point. Conventional wisdom used to say that Congresscritters couldn’t run for Prez because of all the compromises and procedural votes on their records. (Barry’s the first congressional preznit since JFK, depending on how you count LBJ’s ascension. And ignore Jerry, of course.) Governors supposedly had an easier record to defend.

@nojo: Obama was clever. All those “present” votes made for a near squeaky clean record.

Should one have posted this under the “Pawlenty, Man of Destiny” topic or “Hilarity and Schadenfreude”?
Please advise: Pawlenty’s Announcement Makes the Obituary in His Hometown Paper

@¡Andrew!: Let’s not forget women of childbearing age in that list of the oppressees.

@texrednface: Saw that yesterday, but it was too easy. We have standards here. Roughly one step above America’s Funniest Home Videos.

@Benedick HRH KFC: I’m realizing I’m — if I’m not in the fourth quarter, I’m in the third quarter of the chronological clock. And I start thinking, “Well, how cynical is that?” You know, to take the easy path, take the path that is just comfortable but is not as meaningful. And then I get inspired to make a difference.

That, and fart gags.

@nojo: I once got inspired to make a difference. I didn’t end well.

But I am all kinds of impressed by his humility. I suppose we should be grateful he doesn’t talk about himself in the third person. Or plural. Yet.

@Benedick HRH KFC: The cognitive dissonance between Tim and Tim’s Video Editor is a thing to behold.

And if he wants to make a difference, he could always raise money for mosquito nets in Africa.

@nojo: @Benedick HRH KFC: I’m striving to make a difference in the bottom line of local wineries, distillers, and breweries. It’s where my true talents lie.
