Phred Phalls Phlat
Thers at Firedoglake has an amusing take on the too-slowly-dying Thompson campaign, "Enjoy the SchadenFred."
The Thompson campaign has been fascinating to watch, as would be any desperate attempt to slap a saddle on Grandpa. Fascinating, but disturbing, like one of those sadistic Japanese game shows. The constant equestrian metaphors alone were enough to make the sane queasy, and they still haven't stopped with them.
Duncan Hunter is officially out of the race as well, so for comic relief I guess there's nobody left but Huckabee.
Enjoy the rest of the game. It'll be over on February 6, and we can resume what passes for normal behavior for a couple months.
