Are The GOP Primaries Like American Idol In The Sense That NOT Winning Is Better Than Winning?
Winning the contract for America Idol is actually a worse deal than if you get voted off and can have a BETTER career on your own. Isn't it fairly obvious that when Paul, Bachmann and (especially) Rick Perry crank up the crazy-factor to 11 -- they actually have no intention of winning. Why settle for being a Constitutionally-limited President (with little actual power to pass laws) making less than a million a year when losing and becoming a well-known political "star" they can make MILLIONS writing books and giving speeches (like Palin) or working as a highly paid lobbyist. Do you think any of the current candidate actually want to win?
