DESPERATION: Wingnut Pajamas Media Blog Begs For Other GOP Candidates

In a post begging any of the above-named GOP figures to jump into the race, the hard-right Pajamas Media site has posted an article titled "Barack Obama Will Still Be President On January 19th, 2017." It begins:
That is, unless we jettison this freak show of Republican so-called candidates. Newt Gingrich? Newt Gingrich????? The guy peaked nearly 20 years ago. Compromised, corrupt, amoral. He has about as much chance of winning the general election as do Calvin Coolidge’s decomposing remains. Ron F-ing PAUL?????????????? The most charitable thing I can say about him is: Joke candidate. Wrong, wrong, wrong. If he gets the Republican nomination, I would actually stay home on election day, as would most voters forced to choose between a communist and a madman.

Michele Bachmann’s vaccine conspiracies have doomed her as a viable mainstream nominee, unfortunately, even though she is the most likeable of all the candidates and I would have gladly voted for her, “crazy eyes” notwithstanding. Rick Perry has already made far too many unforced errors, and his extreme social conservative activism has turned off many Constitutionally-minded voters like myself who worry that if he wins he’ll use his power not to shrink government but to meddle in Americans’ private lives. No thank you. Herman Cain: Toast. Rick Santorum: If we were all in hell, I’d put my money on the snowball. Huntsman, Johnson and the rest: Who?
As for Romney, the author says "I’d rather have a president with magic underwear than an emperor with no clothes. But the growing tide of anti-Mormon bigotry in this country means that I fear few would join me in this protest vote."
