Twisted Twofer: Cain nearly quit, Fox's Ailes rejected Pawlenty


Welcome to silly time in GOPland! Wait, let's correct that. It's always silly time in GOPland.

Taegan has two stories today that struck me as kind of goofy, or maybe I just have a pre-existing condition that causes me to see every story about a Republican candidate as a spoof.

The first was a quote by Herman Cain:

"The thing that I've learned about myself in this campaign -- because I've never had this happen to me before on a single challenge -- is that I've gone to the brink, ready to pull the plug, but came back, twice. I've only had two days where I personally felt, should I pull the plug? For different reasons. That's how frustrating a campaign can be."

Yes, Mr. Pizza nearly morphed into Former Half-Gov Quitty McLosington, and then wouldn't even provide details.

So, if he were to win the presidency, would he feel the urge to run away if things got too brinky for him?

The next inane item was about someone who actually did quit, Tim Pawlenty:

Tim Pawlenty asked Fox News boss Roger Ailes for a job. But there was a complication: Pawlenty was on the verge of endorsing Romney.

Said Ailes: "I'm not sure I want to sign you as a paid spokesman for Romney."

Poor desperate Tim Pawlenty came to Roger Ailes, hat in hand, and asked for employment but was turned down flat. Now he knows how the rest of the 9.1% feel. Apparently, Roger's not one of those job creators we hear so much about on his network.*

He should have known that Ailes only pays spokespeople for extra crispy, finger-lickin' good-for-ratings right wing extremists. Willard Romney, no matter how hard he tries, is just not loony enough for Fox. Well, not yet anyway.

Another day, another rejection for TPaw. To ClusterFox go the spoiled (as in rotten).

*Fox slogan: The only good job is a nut job.


Quickie: The bland leading the bland


Today's Quickie:

The bland leading the bland:

(CNN) - Former presidential candidate Tim Pawlenty threw his support behind Romney on Monday.  [...]

Following the endorsement, Romney's team announced in a statement that Pawlenty will serve as a national co-chair of Romney's campaign.

That was today's Quickie. Was it good for you?

This actually surprised the heck out of me. Guess he didn't have that lauded "fire in the belly". Via.
