I'm sure the "comments" section for this piece is going to crash Fox's site.

And Newt Gingrich, the smartest of all the Republicans

This says a lot, and none of it good.

It's a shame Hunstman will never have a shot, seeing he is the ONLY candidate who appears to be both intelligent and not crazy, nor a creep; an extreme rarity among the GOP species. You would hope that those bass line characteristics wouldn't be far and few among presidential contenders.

I saw that, and stopped reading the article to my wife for a few seconds. My mind went "Does not compute!" and it took a bit for it to reboot.

He's a rich Mormon who willingly resigned his governorship to work for the Seekrit Mooslim Kenyan Commie Overlord and who knows a language that isn't English. That alone disqualifies him forever with the wingnuts.

Sad, really. He's the only one in the GOP I would have considered voting for in 2016.

A little over a year ago, I put the President's odds at retaining office at 5-to-1 against. People all over the place were seriously pissed, and ain't none of them were blaming the GOP. The buck stops where it always does: the man in charge.

Now that the GOP has skin in the game? People all over the place are pissed, and they're blaming everyone equally. The much ballyhooed 9% Congressional Approval Rating, the lukewarm acceptance of the various GOP Contenders, the rise of a counter-Tea-Party in OWS, and the fact that the President's total approval rating have stayed in the mid-40% range all year all adds up to a significant change over the last year.

My current odds? Obama retains 4-3. The GOP had a significant shot at changing the game for 2012. But they let themselves screw it all up.

There Is No Such Thing as “Mild” CovidRead this thread. The good news down at the end is that full vaccination does help mitigate long Covid. Nevertheless, you don't want to get a "mild" case of Covid. PSA: COVID-19 isn’t “just a cold,” isn’t “a respiratory virus,” ...
