as the remaining candidates try desperately to stop the man nobody wants (Barack Obama).

I've made one minor correction above - the man noboday wants for president happens to be the one we have.  Gallop poll numbers released show Obama's popularity is now just 43%.

This is lower than any recent president at this point in his first term, going back to at least Jimmy Carter.

Too funny. From The New York Review of Books:

If one momentarily puts to the side his wildly extreme political views, his obvious and cringe-inducing knowledge gaps, and his alleged treatment of women, one can easily find things to admire in the man. Certainly, he does himself in This Is Herman Cain!

Perry , Parakeet or Frog?

The one and only Maureen Dowd has checked in with a phrase in her op/ed column today that, in my opinion, hilariously sums up Rick Perry.  She said,

"...if brains were elastic, Perry wouldn't have enough to make suspenders for a parakeet."

She goes on to handicap the Republican race in some novel and insightful (but scary ways), concluding that it just might be Newt's moment after all!  A presidential candidate nicknamed after an amphibious frog?  Have we come to this???

I don't think we should be in such a gosh darned hurry to wrap up the Republican nomination.  WHAT in the WORLD will we do for entertainment???

>>Perry asked students in NH today to vote for him -- if they "will be 21 by November the 12th."

LOL -- maybe he just plans to go drinking with them in the bar after he's out of the rece.

The United States' voting age is 18, and voters will weigh in on the presidential election on November 6.

He'd have had a chance, at least, without Palin.  I think that the Lehman collapse pretty much did in the Republicans in 2008, however.

Agreed, Going for someone with style over substance did not endear him to the independents he was trying to woo, although Ms. Palin did seem to resonate with many Republicans (especially in the beginning).

McCain could be president today if he had made a more reasoned choice of VP in 2008. Just saying.

Marvin, you seem like you'd be able to write some great skits for Stephen Colbert.
