A Cast of Thousands
Just when you thought the field of Republican presidential candidates couldn’t get any bigger, it expanded again. And this time, it’s another familiar face: former U.S. Senator Rick Santorum.
Although it isn’t yet official, many expect the social conservative to announce his presidential intentions on May 27 (the day his website indicated he will make a “special announcement”).
You may recall that Santorum came in second behind Mitt Romney as the Republican nominee in 2012—a fact I am still quite thankful for today.
This means we now have a proverbial cast of thousands planning to seek the Republican nomination, including such whack-a-doodles as Ted Cruz, Rand Paul, Marco Rubio, Ben Carson, Mike Huckabee and Carly Fiorina. Hell, Sarah Palin may as well join the crowd to help balance out the crazy.
I’m sorry, but with so many potential GOP candidates, the Republican presidential field is starting to look like the political equivalent of the Brotherhood of Evil Mutants.
Of course, Magneto would get my vote over any of these losers!
