|What if they're all losers?

Phrembah (a potato-like mystery)
What if MERLIN can't distiguish any clear winners in the Republican Clown Car because there aren't any winners in there? What if this is the year that the real Great White Buffalo finally shows up? What then? Huh?
Many of us thought that Mick Romney was The Great White Buffalo. He is the whitest person in America (if you don't count Edgar Winter) and we as an electorate were definitely buffaloed in the sense that we had a severely limited choice, candidate-wise. What was missing was any vestige of greatness. Romney just isn't. Great, that is. He's a Ken doll made of cheap toxic Chinese plastic who can relate to no one but himself.
The problem is that, search the horizon with our binoculars as we will, there is not a Great Buffalo in sight, white or otherwise. Some thought if we could just get a Bush to run, the glory days of preemptive wars and endless tax cuts for billionaires would be ours again. But, old Jeb is campaigning with an undisguisable limp. Nobody wants him for president, including the Republicans and his own mother.
Keep your eyes open. Maybe we could enlist the aid of UFO buffs and Big Foot and chupacabra hunters, people expert at looking for stuff that probably doesn't exist.
