On the whole, Gail Collins is all too often a Maureen Dowd-wannabe in her New York Times columns (Gail, dear, that ship has sailed, really), but today’s entry is pretty funny and a thorough look at the Mittster’s doomed campaign. And the use of Seamus, the cartop dog, to tie it all together is particularly clever, I thought.
She’s right, of course. Without Mitt, Ol’ Fred and Mayor 9/11, the GOP side of things has ceased to be nearly as amusing. Best we can hope for now is that God’s Chosen One offers up his impressive lack of knowledge about science, the world around him, foreign affairs and other topics on a more regular basis. That’s because, sadly, the Straight Talker just isn’t funny…except in a very sad way.
Maybe he could tell his awful Chelsea Clinton joke again and get suspended by MSNBC.
Or embraced by Rush Limbaugh and Ann Coulter.
