The Leader of the Pack (vroom vroom)
As we all know, Barack Obama’s hopes for reelection are DOOMED. Oh no, not because the Republicans will field a terrific candidate (’cause they won’t), but rather because Jesus will be returning Saturday May 21st. Ugh I can’t believe I paid my rent in full this month!
Anyway, as we wait for the rapture, Republicans are wringing their hands about the lackluster candidates who have stepped forward to challenge President Obama (if Herman Cain isn’t elected President I’m moving to Canada!); now some in the G.O.P. are begging Indiana Governor Mitch Daniels to join the race and save their party/our budget/the fetuses (it’s always about the fetuses with these people).
Begging Daniels to run is not without his issues. First of all, he’s 5’7, squirrely and bald and from what I can tell he looks more like a High School Physics teacher than President. One might say he has the political appeal of Diet Corn Flakes.
But ya know what, maybe I’m just being silly. After all, every profile of the Governor loves to mention that he rides a motorcycle! Isn’t that awesome? I can think of nothing cooler than a 62 year old midwesterner with a comb over who rides a motorcycle. NOTHING.
Okay, enough with the sarcasm. Daniels may fire up the Republicans with his hard-nosed budget ball busting, but that appeal is super limited. May I suggest he’d make a fine losing Vice Presidential Candidate? Or failing that a door stop.
