GOP Hoof-and-Mouth Circus

Dr. Rand Paul, who months ago was checking out patients' eyes, is on TV proposing to cut off the Federal budget at the knees.

Sarah Palin, who abandoned her own state for big bucks, is on the Wisconsin capitol steps, to praise a no-show Gov. Scott Walker for resisting "violent rent-a-mobs": "He's not trying to hurt union members. Hey folks, he’s trying to save your jobs and your pensions.”

Donald Trump, with a history of business and personal bankruptcies, is on the tube bragging, "“I'm a much bigger business man and have much, much bigger net worth. I mean, my net worth is many, many, many times Mitt Romney.”

Welcome to the GOP 2012 three-ring circus, where all the attractions are suffering from hoof-in-mouth disease but for now are vastly entertaining crowds with their crazed antics.

The scene recalls one in an old Paul Newman movie, "Hud," in which infected cattle are herded into a large pit to be killed by shooters in raincoats and then covered with dirt by a bulldozer.

Voters may be enjoying the Republican show now, but that bulldozer is waiting in the wings just in case one of the critters staggers into the White House and starts to bury us all.

Is this a great country or what?
