Running With Scissors

The GOP Clown Sideshow


The clownish sideshow ring mastered by the fringe GOP candidates is a textbook Catch-22 for the GOP. If party leaders publicly badmouth, marginalize, or ostracize them than that almost certainly will blow the very slender chance they already have of making Obama a one term president. This would be the GOP’s nightmare and Obama’s dream. The GOP thankfully is stuck with its clowns.

Palin, Bachman, Trump, Cain, Perry and Paul know that any utterance, no matter how silly and irrelevant, will be picked up, played up, and endlessly talked about in the mainstream media. Their idolatrous followers love every word from them.

Conservative Radio Is Tanking

Right-wing talk radio may have worn out its welcome, at least for now,” reports Crain’s New York Business.

A new Arbitron report shows Rush Limbaugh’s ratings down 33% from a year ago and Sean Hannitty down 28% over the same time period. Meanwhile, more centrist personalities — Don Imus in the morning and John Batchelor at night — were both up from a year earlier.

Nice to see that stupidity is losing it’s appeal.
