    candidates for what? Barnum and Bailey ringmaster?

    I don't know what's worse, that these are actually the republicans that are going to be fighting for the nod, or the fact that most of them are fox news analysts or contributors. Ron Paul is the only guy I would ever even think of voting for out of those clowns.
