In these tough times, America needed some light entertainment and good belly laughs. Now the true story can be told. The Primary season was stand up comedy.

April Fool’s Day Announcement Brings Practical Joke to an End
...“April Fool!” exclaimed former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney and former Pennsylvania Senator Rick Santorum at a press conference in Washington, where they were joined by fellow merrymakers Newt Gingrich, Michele Bachmann, Rick Perry and Herman Cain.
Moments after revealing that the GOP primary had been one long practical joke, Mr. Santorum explained the rationale behind staging such a complicated and expensive prank.
“A lot of Americans are suffering right now and need a good laugh,” he said. “I think my colleagues and I can be justifiably proud of the entertainment we provided – even if it meant me wearing these ridiculous sweater vests.”
Former Godfather’s Pizza CEO Herman Cain agreed that the prank had gone well, but added, “I’m just amazed that the American people never figured out we were kidding.”

All that talk about the Clown Car, and no one worked it out.

6. Not buying it!
Where is Sarah Palin in that line-up? Now THAT would be funny! (Further fun could then be had by grabbing a big bag of popcorn and posting that press release over in the free republic....it'd be like front row at a Gallagher show!)
