Unless some story pops about him having an army of illegitimate children, or some sort of fabulous scandal that involves a poolboy, a can of Crisco and a pair of jumper cables, the Whitest Man In The World, Mitt Romney, appears to be the front runner for the GOP nomination for President.
Now, it’s REALLY early in the GOP’s nominating game, but I’ll unofficially predict right now that it’ll be Mitt on the ballot this November.
If we look back to 2008 at this time of year, it was a massive fustercluck of names all bidding for their party’s nomination. At the moment, the names to keep an eye on are:
Mitt Romney – The Wealthy Whiteness
Ron Paul – Still Crazy After All These Years
Jon Huntsman – The Moderate and Forgettable
Newt Gingrich – Everyone’s Forgotten About the Nineties, yes?
Rick Santorum – Please Don’t Google me
Rick Perry – Makes them Bush boys look like sissies!
Michele Bachmann – No, really, he’s straight!
Days are numbered for Rick Perry, I suspect. And you know Newt won’t go the distance. He makes more money with his mail-order scams.
