Send In The Clowns…

Poor Charlie Rose…he’s known for his ability to skillfully conduct interviews and gather important information from public figures. I can’t begin to imagine what thoughts were swirling around his brain as he moderated the GOP presidential debate last night. Perhaps something like this?:

Tweedledum and Tweedledee

Agreed to have a battle;

For Tweedledum said Tweedledee

Had spoiled his nice new rattle.

Just then flew down a monstrous crow,

As black as a tar-barrel;

Which frightened both the heroes so,

They quite forgot their quarrel*.


Yes, that about sums it up. Ah, the wisdom of nursery rhymes!

Many of us are feeling like Alice in Wonderland — so I leave it up to you to decide which presidential candidate fits these characters though I’m leaning towards Mitt Romney and Rick Perry.

Herman Cain, you know where you fit in.
