Tonight the critters file their preliminary report on the GOP 2012 presidential horse race which right now has more horse pies than horse sense. (More)

Following the release of the 2nd quarter fundraising totals, some of the handicappers were hinting that the herd may be thinning out as some of the candidates decide whether or not to rein in their campaigns. The critters figured they had better saddle up and check out the field before they started dropping like flies.

Silly Saturday

The 2012 primary season started out with a bang

.

Others eyed the race

But decided to watch and wait

.

The rest of the candidates called into Republican Headquarters to sign up and get their talking points

.

Point: Run as “strong” and “manly” (unless you are a girl, I suppose)

.

Point: Deny evolution and all that history stuff

.

Point: Be a neigh sayer about … everything

.

Point: Promote a 19th century plan for American prosperity

.

Point: Do not waver from the path of Grover Norquist Ideologia

.

Wow. Brings a lump (of something) to your throat, doesn’t it?

In fact the first reaction most people had to the GOP field was this

Followed closely by this

And finally this

Let’s have one more expert neigh in. Frau Blücher?

You’re right. That has nothing at all to do with the GOP 2012 Presidential Candidates but when I thought of horses I thought immediately of Frau Blücher.

(Okay. I’ll stop now.)

Yes, the gallopping goofiness of this gang of glue factory castoffs look like they are heading to da feat in da fall of 2012

(Doz be da feat)

.

But that does not mean we can just sit back and watch them stumble out of the gate and hope they throw a shoe.

Load up that bandwagon, hitch up our own workhorses and let’s pull together to beat them to the finish line.
