The Boring Guy Bows Out; Treachery Among the Hypocrites

There is no joy in Mudville today, as the mighty juggernaut that was the Jon Huntsman Presidential campaign finally ground to a halt. The various webmeisters started yanking every anti-Romney video and screed available as the former Governor of Utah bent over, revealing his Goatse of Concession ...

... and endorsed Mitt Romney for President.

In a way, Huntsman's departure is a sad one. Unlike the rest of the Losers and Bums on the hustings, Huntsman was pro-science and actually sounded reasonably sane most of the time. Unfortunately, these are qualities sorely lacking in the rest of the GOP candidate field.

Now, Huntsman had previously said many unkind things about The Mitt:

"... perfectly lubricated weather vane on the important issues of the day ..."

" been missing in action in terms of showing any kind of leadership ...”

"There’s a question whether he’s running for the White House or the Waffle House.”

One wonders what he expects to get from Romney if he wins.

We have to be fair here. Huntsman really never had a chance, as Mister Inevitable wielded far too much money - and therefore far too much power in terms of vote acquisition. Huntsman lagged behind everyone, managing a feeble third behind Ron Paul in New Hampshire.

Even in South Carolina, he could only manage five percent - which put him behind Stephen Colbert. Double irony points for that.


Speaking of South Carolina, the Battle of the Not-Romneys rages on unabated in the days leading to the January 21st primary. Ron Paul seems to have the lunatic vote sewn up, leaving the withered rump of the Tea Party and the Whacko Jesus Faction to be fought over by Newton Gingrich and Rick Santorum.

One hundred fifty whackos met on a ranch in Texas over the weekend to quibble about who was the righteousier-than-Romney. They selected Rick Frothy Mix as Their Guy.

Then things took a turn for the silly.

The Protestants are complaining that they were fooled into going home after the second ballot so that the Catholics could stuff the ballot box in favor of Santorum, who is Catholic. The Protestants' guy is Gingrich, who's Catholic as well but not so you'd notice, considering his Mormon attitude toward wedlock.

Not that any of this foofaraw matters a whit. Mittens polls higher than Lunatic, Degenerate and Closet-Case combined in South Carolina, and looks to be given the coveted Fidel Castro Suffering All The Way To Havana Award when Florida votes on January 31st.

Despite the GOP's slutty flirtations with all of the Not-Romneys, Mitt looks as if the race is his to lose.

And the only way that can happen is if, in true Old Politics fashion, he's caught in bed with a live boy or a dead girl.
