In the wake of the dump truck

SOME TRASH THAT fell off the truck while the Romney campaign was spending more than $15 million on ads in Florida:

  • As the GOP's national chairman Reince Priebus continues to wave off his TV comment comparing President Obama to the captain of the ill-fated Italian cruise ship, he effortlessly ascended to first place as the party's Public Idiot #1. Where do Republicans find these silly hit men , anyway?
  • Speaking of waving garbage off, Florida Republican Rep. Allen West insisted he was misunderstood when he shouted to an audience that President Obama, Sen. Harry Reid and Rep. Nancy Pelosi should "get the hell out of America." I'm not sure what there is to misunderstand about those words. If you know, tell me.
  • Haven't we had a enough of the "class warfare" whining from the right? When a party has no class, how can there be warfare over it?

  • When McNewt assures us that he plans to stay in the race until the GOP convention, you have to admire his mad rush to oblivion. As the only talking walrus in captivity, he offers a fresh supply of nonsense everyday. Now that we have become conditioned to it, we will miss him on Doomsday. (A third party McNewt/Cain ticket?)

  • When Fox's Lou Dobbs says the economy is improving, it's improving, folks.

  • Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer, whose crass confrontation with President Obama stretched beyond absurdity, has updated her finger-pointing stunt, writing on her home site: "I was telling him, You have ONE more year. The president needs to be reminded that he is the president of the FEDERAL REPUBLIC and not a KING lording over state governors." As you might expect, Brewer is seeking re-election in her troubled state and what better way to get a photo-op than to jam into the president's face? It's a little surprising that she didn't bring a nasty anti-Obama protestor sign to close the deal with the voters. Jeez!

You're in rare form today, Abe, but the Republicans are giving you so, so much to work with!
