Who has the time and energy to feed these clowns egos? What is the upside of becoming one of the clowns? Downside?

I am waiting for Romney and Hillary to jump in the Dem race.

Hillary is praying the whole bunch trash each other and the convention ends up in a mess.Then the queen will have the curtain part and she'll step out on the stage while the arena erupts into chants "Hillary, Hillary"!
Well - she can dream, can't she?

Don Bessee

More like everyone's nightmare @ 950, well other than Brad Pascale's!

Let the games begin.

What's the prize again? A fine bottle of "you can't get that here" Irish whiskey?

Walt

Looks like Butta whatshisshits is going to be an early out.
He can't handle a small local uproar without looking like a coward.

Bill Tozer

Ok team, chop chop. Time to write your Election Confessions.

George Rebane

Walt 719pm - Actually, the prize for the winner is a good dose of sinful pride that can be exhibited in divers ways here and elsewhere ;-)

Speaking of Irish whiskey (for which I again thank you) and sinful pride, For years I have had this little aphorism mounted above my liquor cabinet. It is an enduring source of comfort every time I hit the sauce.

'It's good for your soul to take a drop now and then, for it saves you from the sinful pride that often comes with total abstinence.'

Another Name for the clown car list:

Billionaire environmentalist Tom Steyer is planning to launch his campaign for the 2020 Democratic presidential nomination, a report said Sunday.

The 62-year-old Steyer — who toyed with the idea of running in the past — held a private conference call last week to tell people close to him that he was planning to run, according to Politico.

“He’s definitely focused on the [fact that the] economy is not as good as people are making it out to be,” a source told the newspaper.

“I think his heart’s in the right place. If he’s doing this, he’s got a reason behind it — He’s a very intelligent man.”

Steyer, a former hedge fund manager, founded the environmental advocacy nonprofit NextGen America.

He also founded a group, and spent millions, seeking to gain support for the impeachment of President Trump.

He would join an already crowded Democratic field with front runners such as former Vice President Joe Biden, California Senator Kamala Harris, and Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders.

Swalwell looks to be heading towards the door today.

Bill Tozer

Swalwell? Darn.

If his expected departure holds true.....Todd came the closest with Swalwell dropping out third. Nobody had Swalwell #1. Good job, Todd. On the other end of the spectrum, the worse pick was Bill T with Swalwell dropping out eleventh. That sucks. Ouch. The only other idiot to be soooo far off from the pack was one George Rebane, also at eleventh.

Moral of the story’s: Don’t listen to Bill T or George Rebane.

Thanks for nuthin’, Barry. :).

BillT 746am - Good points Mr Tozer, guilty as charged. But then, it ain't over til it's over ;-)

Don Bessee
