As a political commentator, I don’t think I’ve ever had as much fun in my life as watching this Republican primary.
You must admit, it’s had its memorable moments. Like Donald Trump, making a big issue out of President Obama’s birth certificate – and then getting destroyed at the White House Correspondents Association.
Or, like Michele Bachmann, saying how happy she was to be in the state that gave us Lexington and Concord – even though she was standing in New Hampshire, not Massachusetts.
But, by far, the best moment happened this weekend: when Herman Cain endorsed Newt Gingrich for president.
Now, first of all, this is Cain’s second endorsement. I was there, in Charleston, South Carolina, when – on stage with Stephen Colbert – he endorsed “we, the people” for president. Why did he throw us overboard? What are we? Chicken soup?
But, the more I think about it, the more I realize this makes sense. Herman Cain and Newt Gingrich? The serial sexual harasser joins forces with the serial adulterer. What a perfect team!
Do you think Newt gave Herman some tips on how to succeed in marriage? Or was it the other way around?
One thing for sure: With these two cats, you can no longer call the Republican Party the party of family values.
That’s my parting shot for today.
