GOP Candidate Thumbnails
After watching last night’s debate, I think I’ve finally nailed down my final impressions of the candidates.
I can’t help it, but every time I see Michelle Bachmann, she strikes me as being minutes away from boiling a bunny. But she hides the whole Fatal Attraction vibe pretty well.
Newt Gingrich seems to have a high opinion of himself, and the massively weighty thoughts that spring from his Olympian brow. He seems to content to let other people follow up on those ideas, as he’s too busy producing new deep thoughts to craft the old ones into reality. Thank God.
When Ron Paul starts his inevitable tirade against the Freemasons/Jews, I can’t say I will be surprised.
Mitt Romney almost convinces me that he does have core conservative principles. Almost.
If I close my eyes when Rick Perry speaks, the foremost image in my mind is George W. Bush. A slightly more eloquent one, of course.
A Rick Santorum/John Edwards ticket would have been the prettiest campaign team EVER. And talk about a "big tent"!
What can I say about Jon…um…Hunter? Hu….mmmm…Huntsman! Yes. Huntsman—that hasn’t already been said? Very distinguished hair.
Gary Johnson is a way friendlier face for libertarianism than Ron Paul. Or would be, if anyone outside New Mexico had ever heard of him.
If Jeb Bush could change his last name to "Rogers" or something, and jump into the race, he would probably lock up the nomination in days.
