8. I wonder what the results would have been without the Paulbots
Tony Perkins needs to take a long walk off a short pier on this one: HIS people picked Herman Cain, who is currently polling ahead of two governors and two Members of Congress (one current and one former in each category) because he's never been elected to office and, as we all know, the number-one qualification for service as the president of the United States is never having even run for city council.

Now, here's the huge problem the Republicans have: Right now, they've got two candidates. One of them is Mitt Romney, whose major advantage is he's capable of beating President Obama in 2012. The other one is in four containers named Herman Cain, Rick Perry, Rick Santorum and Michele Bachmann. There is no substantive difference between any of the four. There's minor differences like Cain's economic plan, which includes the "fair tax" thing that turns every "job creator" into an unpaid Federal revenue agent, but other than that they're all the same.
