Bwahahahahaha, GOP Primary, Republican-Fail, Republicans — January 23, 2014 at 7:05 pm

The Republicans’ field for 2016 is AWESOME! (And hilarious.)


Oh, hardy har har har…

A recent fundraising email from was disguised as a “help us pick our presidential candidate for 2016” poll. The list of candidates shows in vivid detail just how shallow their bench actually is:

  • Kelly Ayotte
  • Haley Barbour
  • John Bolton
  • Jeb Bush
  • Herman Cain
  • Ben Carson
  • Chris Christie
  • Ted Cruz
  • Mitch Daniels
  • Newt Gingrich
  • Nikki Haley
  • Mike Huckabee
  • Bobby Jindal
  • John Kasich
  • Peter King
  • Susana Martinez
  • Sarah Palin
  • Rand Paul
  • Ron Paul
  • Tim Pawlenty
  • Mike Pence
  • Rick Perry
  • Rob Portman
  • Condoleezza Rice
  • Marco Rubio
  • Paul Ryan
  • Brian Sandoval
  • Rick Santorum
  • Tim Scott
  • John Thune
  • Scott Walker
  • Allen West

It’s an astonishing list. No Mitt Romney? How about Rick Scott? Ken Cuccinelli? Colin Powell?

And, really, Sarah Palin? Newt Gingrich? Ben Carson? John Bolton? These are legitimate enough to make this list? Hoo boy.

I can see now why they want to shorten the nomination process in 2016. They don’t build a clown car that big.
