    Obama's set the new low benchmark. If Obama's qualified and was defended as being qualified for 2 years running up to and even after the election... why isn't Bachmann? Hell... the little man that keeps the coffee fresh at the Wawa market is qualified nowadays.

    Sort of. But only when we elect to pay attention.

    The cable channels will be running an endless stream of meaningless polls. And the Drudge headline will pick up the occasional verbal gaff that some candidate makes at a town hall speech in Weasel Falls, Kentucky.


    Otherwise, the actual game doesn't start scoring until the primaries next spring....

    There's more to qualification than job experience. Bachmann is an evangelical. Her worldview deviates significantly from reality.

    Like academia? That's not working so well right now actually.

    I'm sure compared to your world view it does deviate.

    T-Paw announced that he's withdrawing from the race -- another clear sign of how screwed up the Republican Party is. They have become so in thrall to the extreme right wingers that they seem to be incapable of nominating a reasonable person who might appeal to independents. Looks like it's Romney or bust....

Newt is probably toast after this.
    And my ability to predict the future continues at it's normal level. Pawlenty has withdrawn from the race.
