re: #169 Charles Johnson

Wow. Just wow. These are the GOP frontrunners for 2016.

With a list like this the Democrats could put up Marion Barry as their nominee and probably still win a plurality of electoral votes.

Then again, I have to admit that Ted Cruz is a rather shrewd snake-oil salesman.

Ted Cruz would sell this door-to-door had he lived in the late 19th century.

2 Kid A  Jul 15, 2014 8:37:15pm

Where’s David Duke?

3 Lidane  Jul 15, 2014 8:37:27pm

That’s the best the GOP has to offer?

Please proceed.

Fiji Mermaid/Batboy 2016

Why settle for a lesser brand of grotesque hoax?

5 Floral Giraffe  Jul 15, 2014 8:43:27pm

Sarah Palin/ Ted Nugent 2016!

re: #2 Kid A

Where’s David Duke?

There’s a number of names that should be on this list! Ted Nugent. Rush Limbaugh. Joe Arpaio. Alabama Chief Justice Roy Moore. Phil Robertson. Bryan Fischer. Rick Scott. Louie Gohmert. Pat Buchanan. Allen West.

Holy shit, Allen West is on this list!

7 Kid A  Jul 15, 2014 8:44:34pm

John Bolton?

8 jaunte  Jul 15, 2014 8:45:19pm

Where’s Trump?

9 Kid A  Jul 15, 2014 8:47:20pm

Man, it would have been some kind of awesome if Dim Jim had made the list.

10 Romantic Heretic  Jul 15, 2014 8:47:55pm

Oh, I couldn’t resist. So I entered the poll.

Ben Carson, Sarah Palin and Allen West.

If any of them end up as candidates America will become a one party state, and the party won’t the GOP.

11 Eclectic Cyborg  Jul 15, 2014 8:48:06pm

What, no George Zimmerman?

12 Kid A  Jul 15, 2014 8:48:43pm

Where’s GOHMERT!!!????

13 Eclectic Cyborg  Jul 15, 2014 8:49:08pm


14 Charles Johnson  Jul 15, 2014 8:49:35pm

Gohmert is still working his way up through the ranks of mental patients.

15 Kid A  Jul 15, 2014 8:49:38pm

Now how the hell did Joe the Plumber not make the list?

16 Charles Johnson  Jul 15, 2014 8:49:59pm

re: #13 Eclectic Cyborg

In all seriousness there is at least one legitimately intriguing omission:
Bobby Jindal

No, he’s in there - look again.

17 Kid A  Jul 15, 2014 8:50:18pm

He’s there. First row, five down.

It’s like an optical illusion of stupid - your eyes just kind of slide over him.

19 BeachDem  Jul 15, 2014 8:51:10pm

That straw poll has been out there for several months—I remember bringing it up at a Dem meeting awhile back and laughing that SC had two losers on the list—Haley and Scott. They must not have gotten much response (other than hysterical laughter) for Reince to be floating it again.

20 Eclectic Cyborg  Jul 15, 2014 8:51:21pm

Gah! And I checked TWICE. I haven’t been drinking. Seriously, I haven’t. :P

21 blueraven  Jul 15, 2014 8:51:36pm

Who can take them seriously when they add Sarah Palin to that parade of horribles?

22 Eclectic Cyborg  Jul 15, 2014 8:52:09pm


23 bratwurst  Jul 15, 2014 8:53:33pm

I bet the only person more surprised than me to see Tim Pawlenty on that list is Tim Pawlenty!

24 Lancelot Link  Jul 15, 2014 8:53:47pm

They forgot Inanimate Carbon Rod.

25 prairiefire  Jul 15, 2014 8:54:04pm

I’m starting to think Jumpin’ Joe Biden is going to enter the race.

26 Eventual Carrion  Jul 15, 2014 8:54:10pm

re: #7 Kid A

John Bolton?

Recess appointments.

27 jaunte  Jul 15, 2014 8:54:31pm

Reince’s big idea: “show that we have a deep bench.”

I wish I could karma points this a few more times. Great Simpsons reference!

29 jaunte  Jul 15, 2014 8:57:29pm

OT, but too good to pass up:

Godwin on (Carbon Dioxide) Godwin:

30 Petero1818  Jul 15, 2014 8:58:24pm

I see this list and all I think about is how badly they will all damage themselves in the race for the edge of the cliff known as the GOP primaries.

31 jaunte  Jul 15, 2014 8:59:49pm

Looks like he rewrote the tweet while I was posting:

32 teleskiguy  Jul 15, 2014 9:00:17pm


Did you all hear “Weird” Al Yankovic’s new song “Word Crimes”? I guess it parodies a song by Robin Thicke. I’ve never heard the source material, but I already know that Weird Al does it way better.

I still think Weird Al is a National Treasure.

33 jaunte  Jul 15, 2014 9:03:30pm
34 goddamnedfrank  Jul 15, 2014 9:15:28pm

John Huntsman is conspicuously absent from that list.

35 Amory Blaine  Jul 15, 2014 9:25:36pm

36 sagehen  Jul 15, 2014 9:32:06pm
37 Tigger2  Jul 15, 2014 9:45:13pm

Where was zombie Reagan on that list.

38 Odie Hugh Manatee  Jul 15, 2014 10:10:06pm

re: #24 Lancelot Link

They forgot Inanimate Carbon Rod.

I was thinking Lug Nut was a glaringly obvious omission.

39 AntonSirius  Jul 16, 2014 6:08:11am

re: #10 Romantic Heretic

Oh, I couldn’t resist. So I entered the poll.

Ben Carson, Sarah Palin and Allen West.

If any of them end up as candidates America will become a one party state, and the party won’t the GOP.

LOL… those were exactly the same three I picked!

I also gave my name as Prince Reibus.

40 Bulworth  Jul 16, 2014 6:22:46am

Is this list some kind of joke?

Mitch Daniels? Gosh I’d almost forgotten about him. Mike Pence. Allen F0cking West? Sarah Palin? Kelly Ayotte. RON PAUL???? Rand Paul. Maybe the father will run against his son. Ben Carson—the f0ck. John f0cking Bolton? What about Mittens?

41 djcelts  Jul 16, 2014 7:32:47am

No, Buddy Roemer?
No, Jon Huntsman?

42 RealityBasedSteve  Jul 16, 2014 9:43:11am

That would be a great “Porn Name”.
