Tuesday night the Iowa Republican caucuses were held.  Michele Bachman visited all 99 counties so people could get to know her better.  Apparently they did.  She finished in a far distant sixth place but exhultantly told a small crowd of supporters that she was marching on all the way to the presidency.

Then she went to bed and perhaps had a chat with folks who said her campaign was broke and her hopes had been nullified.  The next day she pulled out with a speech in which she pronounced "poignant" just like it's spelled.

The Texas Tornado, Governor Rick Perry, after a lowly 5th place finish, said he was going home to Texas to "reassess my campaign".  That translates into: "write my concession speech."

But, out on a jog the next morning, he heard a voice from above (or perhaps a commercial on the radio of a passing car) that said "But wait!  There's more!"  Soon he announced that he was going on to make a fool of himself in two more debates in New Hampshire and continue his campaign in South Carolina.

Was it that last drink I had last night or is something else making me feel dizzy?

Stay tuned, gentle readers.  If you think it's been nuts so far, just wait until Newt gets wound up.  Oh.  He is?

Mrs. Chatterbox and I received an electric knife sharpener for Christmas. Maybe I should lend it to Newt so the knives he'll be throwing at Romney during the next debate will be as sharp as possible.

Actually all my friends and I are taking up a collection benefiting our Guv, Rick Perry, so he can stay out on the campaign trall right up until the conveniton, and maybe even right up until the November election. Can you guess our ulterior motive? ;)

I did like how Michele managed to do her hair and make up every day, (the only credit I can give her) I even kind of feel sorry for the GOP as their candidates are the most ill informed I have ever listened is sad! What is even sadder there are people who believe them, when are they going to open up and embrace the 21st century?......:-)Hugs

Love this post, you had me laughing out loud. I can't wait to hear what Perry forgets in the next debate.

Bernie - Yes, first Sarah, then Michele. Lovely to look at but . . . When M was delivering her pull-out speech I turned to SWMBO and said "I wonder how long it takes her to put those false eyelashes on every morning."

Sharon - It will probably be what state he's in . . . something unimportant like that.
