The 2010 elections are still eight months away, so you know what that means: time to check on what the frontrunners for the 2012 Republican presidential nomination are doing:
Mitt Romney has released a book, and Spencer Ackerman has his review. There is little your editor can add to Mr. Ackerman's takedown, other than that the MormonBot 2012 really will need a processing power upgrade before the primaries in two years. Too bad the computer guy who may have had a hand in swiping the 2004 Ohio elections for W is dead!
Meantime Sarah Palin continues her canny bid to lock up the nomination by courting an audience made up of people so old that many of them could be dead by 2012. I'm speaking, of course, of the audience for "The Tonight Show," hosted by that unfunny dude with the chin whose name shall not ever be spoken by the Devolutionist. Not that the Devolutionist was a Conan fan, or owns a TV, or ever bothered to watch the show online...in this house it's "The Daily Show" or GTFO.
So, Sarah Palin, who is only unintentionally funny, apparently did a stand-up routine (!!!!) and submitted to an interview with The Chin. Your editor only read the excerpts, suspecting as he does that watching the video will give him heartburn, anal leakage, chlamydia, and the irresistible urge to kill puppies. For those with stronger constitutions, video is here.
Thankfully Mike Huckabee does not appear to have done anything insane to appear in the news this week. But it is only Wednesday.
