Or I could use it to describe the 2016 GOP Presidential hopefuls. With Scott Walker starting an “exploratory committee” (so he can continue his unlimited fund raising, I guess) for President, I think that they will finally have filled the tiny car with the big key on top of it.
I bet you didn’t know that there are 24 declared GOP candidates, 4 likely candidates still in the exploratory phase (including Walker, Christie and Jindal), 5 potential candidates and 2 “not running” candidates (you know…those two losers from last time…Romney and Ryan). Since thirteen of the candidates are virtually unknown, it appears that when Walker and Jindal finally think they have enough money, there will be 13 plus individuals competing for the nomination.
Here’s a few recent highlights of the ridiculousness of some of the contenders:
In the first two days of his campaign, the Donald has already screwed up. He may have paid actors to show up and cheer at his announcement rally, he used a Neil Young song (an indictment of the Bush years) without permission and got smacked on social media, and made racist remarks.
Just a week or so before that, Mike Huckabee threw his support behind a child molester and made a pathetic transgender joke (worst part, it wasn’t even funny) that’s still biting him in the ass.
Today, Ben Carson just discovered “intolerance” in America…he’s calling it the “new hate” and that it is root cause of the violence in South Carolina yesterday…..however, earlier this week he advocated sealing our borders to keep people out who want to “bomb us. I guess he means ISIS, but BONUS–that means Mexicans too.
Carly Fiorina can’t even follow simple naming conventions for her PAC. Never mind that she can’t get elected dog catcher….she lost her last race by 10 points.
Jeb Bush…magical thinker. He believes that he can grow GDP by four percent. Enough said.
Last but not least, Marco Rubio decided to ignore the shooting in South Carolina while calling for the Second Amendment to be upheld at the GA GOP convention. Nice.
I could go on…the sheer idiocy of Rand Paul and Ted Cruz alone could be a whole post.
This could be amusing, actually, if was happening elsewhere. The truth of the matter is that one of these clowns could end up being elected. And that’s not really all that funny after all.
