This explains the comb-over

I figured I'd better post this quick, because Donald Trump won't last long. Too bad. Since he's gone all out for crazy, he's picked up a lot of support in the GOP, but it's just a joke, and everyone knows it. He's just using the media as they're using him, with only America harmed by it.

And Boss Hogg - er, Haley Barbour - has already dropped out of the race. That is a shame. He's such a perfect symbol of the GOP these days.

Luckily, there's no shortage of loons running for the Republican presidential nomination. Newt Gingrich, the perfect candidate to defend marriage? Sarah Palin, the half-term former governor who can see Russia from her bedroom? Michele Bachmann, the loon's loon? In fact, there seems to be nothing but loons left in the GOP, and especially in the leadership.

Still, Haley Barbour and Donald Trump would both add to the lunacy nicely. Barbour is out, but if we're lucky, maybe Trump will hang in there awhile. Yeah, if we're really lucky, Republicans will come to their senses. But I don't expect that to happen.
