Clown Car: The Republican 2016 Field

 Jeb Bush, Chris Christie, Rand Paul, Ted Cruz, John Kasich, Scott Walker, Mike Pence, Mitt Romney, Rick Perry, Ben Carson, Susana Martinez, Marco Rubio, Rick Santorum, Bobby Jindal, Carly Fiorina, George Pataki, John Thune, Lindsey Graham, Donald Trump, Bob Corker, Mike Huckabee, Peter King, Bob Ehrlich and Paul Ryan.

Check out this Crooks and Liars article about FOX having kittens over their lords and lady a'running in the field.

Some folks are not so chuffed about the lack of potential in the candidates. The first comment is epic:

Nuts, loons, charlatans, confidence men and raving psychotics. Clowns who believe in nullification. Morons who think the US was founded on biblical law. Imbeciles who think that, "Agenda 21" is a massive global conspiracy. "Serious" business people who have turned industry leaders into industry jokes. Criminals who would shut down a major thoroughfare for political reasons. Blowhards who support terrorism in Great Britain. Racists who get caught on tape referring to, "blah" people. Simpletons who have three point plans and can't come up with what the fuck those three points are. Southern aristocrats who can't take a shit without John McCain's approval. Corporate leeches who have promised amazing revelations about President Obama's "real" (wink, wink) background and have come up with nothing. Hot-shot budget, "experts" who just can't seem to make their numbers add up. Has-beens who have been rejected not once, but TWICE by voters...

Or as conservatives call them: "substantial."

Please proceed, conservatives...

PLEASE fuckin' proceed...

Nick_1 - that was an  awe inspiring rant that, according to another commenter left strains of the Battle Hymn of the Republican playing as background music.

It was this final comment  from  Giganticjohndenver that tipped me over the edge into hysterical laughter:

So that's what shit piled 3 high and 8 across looks like.

Stick a fork in me. I'm done. At least we know what we're up against. It ain't pretty.
