"Good Morning. I'm Running for the Republican Presidential Nomination."

George Pataki. Frothy. Miss Lindsey. The Donald. So many are running, now, that future announcements are going to covered in the "news in brief" column of the papers.

They're going to have to trade the GOP Klown Kar in for a short bus.

The funny thing is that Frothy thinks that his campaign was a success in 2012. Which is bullshit, of course. There aren't second-place winners in elections*. What "success" Frothy had in 2012 was because Willard Romney was such a tool that even a few million GOP voters couldn't stomach him. Rmoney still won the nomination, which meant, of course, that Frothy lost.
* Or gunfights.

It doesn't matter how many run, they are all still united under the banner: "E Pluribus Feces."

Is there some kind of financial advantage or opportunity to running? If so, that would explain why so many "candidates" with obviously no chance of winning get in on it. I can't imagine a Republican/ conservative doing anything without some personal gain.

Leo, higher speechifying fees and the possibility of a "wingnut welfare" job at a think tank or Faux News-- those are two possibilities. If they can find a good ghostwriter, maybe a book deal.
