Republican jumping for gold fish

Conservatives like old Grover Norquist have always dreamed of shrinking government "to where it can be drowned in a bathtub."

Since 1981, we've been hobbled into so much debt by the Republican Party's penchant for charge carding us to prosperity, they finally got our government where they want it: positioned for the big bathing, using what they've heaped as their rationalization. For the coup de grace in the bathtub, they're trying to foist a collection of arffing presidential candidates on us.

These arffing wonders aren't arffing for mere sardines, they're arffing for gold fish, and how high they jump for the likes of Rupert Murdoch and the Koch Brothers and Grover Norquist, dangling above them the gold fish. The circus seal Herman Cain is just spectacular. On the other end of the spectrum there's poor old Rick Perry who seems to barf every time he arffs, and poor Michele Bachmann ain't even coming up with a sardine. How about our Sarah Palin who jumped so high for those gold fish she lost sight of the stage, the bathtub and everything else. Look at her disappear. Darn, just when the Tea Party needed her.

Herman, keep the eye on the beach ball keep the eye on the beach ball. I mean, in this case, the rubber duck.
