Handicapping the Republican Presidential Field for 2012

The year 2012 is gradually getting closer, and it’s never too early to start analyzing the Presidential candidates for the next general election. I’ve conducted much research into the most likely Republican field and here is what my extensive research has yielded.

Sarah Palin:
Pros: High name recognition.
Cons: Name is recognized as being a crazy idiot.

Michele Bachmann:
Pros: High name recognition.
Cons: Name is recognized only for being crazier than Sarah Palin.

Cons: It’s experience at being a prick.

Pros: Probably makes his own moonshine
Cons: Has to put Mississippi on his resume.

Ron Paul :

  1. I think CNN should hire you. I would have offered Fox news but I think their first instinct would be to hire a hitman to stop you from talking. Very funny.

  2. Your handicapping of the Republican presidential field leaves absolutely no doubt that the Republican presidential field is indeed handicapped. Great work!
