I’ve been slacking already, so here’s a two-or-three-week update.
Let’s kick it off with Mike Huckabee, setting the bar pretty low for a candidate who’s not even a candidate yet:
I noticed Huckabee’s book is called God, Guns, Grits and Gravy. If you happened to be around Idaho and Montana at the right time, you might remember Bo Gritz, whose slogan was God, Guns and Gritz. I’m not saying anything about the similarity, though. I’m just sayin’.
Anyway, he may not be a candidate yet, but he’s certainly sniffing around:
Meanwhile, at the end of December, Marco Rubio and Rand Paul had a pissing match over Cuba:
Please note Paul being the voice of reason. He’s going to screw with everyone’s sensibilities as long as he’s around.
Jeb Bush’s intentions have been unclear for a long time, but not anymore:
- Jeb Bush filing paperwork Tuesday for new PAC, in big step toward 2016 bid
- Bush Team Sets Bold Fundraising Goal: $100 Million in Three Months
And I thought Romney would only get in if Bush didn’t, but it’s good to be so wrong so early. Reminds me that I have no fucking clue.
Who ever thought we might have a race between two significant establishment candidates?
Fortunately, there’s a whole slew of second-tier candidates waiting to muddy the waters. Here’s Fox’s list, which overlaps a little with mine:
Well, that wasn’t as bad as it could have been.
