|Wouldn't Ronnie Be Proud!|
Next I took a look at Ron Paul. He was the state champion in the 220 yard dash, I'm thinking he had a scholarship to college. He earned a BS in bio at Gettysberg, and went on to Duke University for his M.D. Went to Detroit for residency and then was a flight surgeon for the Air Force, and the National guard. Why would you, after all those years of training, not go into private practice, but join the military industrial complex, during the height of the Vietnam War? Maybe patriotism?(the draft?) After that it gets even funnier. He becomes an Obstetrician. Oh my, I could not imagine Ron Paul in the delivery room. What a nightmare. ( I use midwives and female doctors, a male gynecologist is like having a motorcycle mechanic work on your car. I'm sure there are good ones out there, but I digress.)
Mitt Romney is just amazing. His dad was the former Governor of Michigan, I never heard Mitt mention his dad was born in Mexico! But it's true. In 1886 his great great grandpa fled to Mexico with his three (yeah I said 3!) wives. I'm not sure if it was because of the wives. But it's real interesting that Romney's dad is technically a Mexican immigrant. (it's all in Wikimedia!) Also his dad was the CEO of American Motors. Can it be? Governor of Michigan to CEO of an automobile manufacturer. How is that possible?
Michelle Bachmann is kinda boring. Her parents got divorced when she was a little girl, and guess what? Her mom remarried a banker! Michelle became a tax lawyer and worked for the I.R.S. Also she gets quite a bit of money from the government because she has a therapeutic home for girls with eating disorders. (Michelle looks way to thin to me) She also gets government funds for a clinic she and her unqualified husband run. Lets not forget the family farm, they received in excess of $260,000 from 1995 to 2008. I guess government really is the problem.
Rick "The Rooster" Santorum. (Yep it's his real nickname derived from his unruly hair and constant annoying crowing all day long.) His parents both worked for the V.A. in Virginia. Which I guess scarred him for life since he is not in favor of women working outside the home. But wait a minute, his parents worked for the government and probably had decent pay and benefits. Something no one is allowed to have now. Rick graduated from Penn State and started working for a Republican State Senator and realized he too could make a living as a politician. Especially when you can just step all over the rights of women or better yet, have them all erased. (the rights and maybe the women too.)
Rick Perry hasn't got a prayer! (I know, what a hoot!) The Governor of Texas was a "Yell Leader" (Can't you tell? Think Will Ferrell Spartan cheerleader) in college in Texas. He graduated with a degree in animal sciences, get's a commission in the Air Force and in 1972, he completed pilot training and became the first military drone! I am blaming this on the Military Industrial Complex too.
It seems to me that none of these candidate's would have a hope in hell of getting anywhere if they had not benefited from our too big, out of control, over budgeted government. Isn't it ironic? Let me get that black fly out of my Chardonnay.
