Sign of the Impending Apocalypse

I have stayed away from the presidential election primaries for the most part, but the Iowa caucuses are upon us and I guess it's time to begin thinking about the person who will succeed the moron-in-chief.

For the most part, I think that it's way too early, but the folks who want to be president have been bothering the good people of Iowa and New Hampshire since Labor Day, invading their diners and TV sets every day trying to dos something that will help them stick out from the crowd.   I think the best way to note how ridiculous it is to begin political television ads 16 months before the election is to review this actual TV spot running in Iowa for for Republican Mike Huckabee, former Arkansas governor.

Yup, friends, that's an actual TV ad. And he's serious.  You should vote for him because and actor playing a part says you should.  Or he will punch you or something.   Huckabee's plan for 'securing the borders' is Chuck Norris?  Give me a fucking break.  This is the front runner in the race for the Republican nomination?  How can I be expected to take this group seriously?
