You just can't make this Stuff up!

Sharky went to me local bookstore today to get me a new read. I noticed it was very busy in the parking lot and there was a huge bus parked outside the place. Inside the store and wrapping around the isles were throngs of folks lined up. Book signing I reckon. Got my book, paid for it and headed for the exit. The doors where occupied by managers and they were opening them for me, I thought.  So as I approached them my eyes were focused on the man holding one of them and saying 'thanks' to him. Well, I walked right into the guest. Damned near bumped heads we did.
We both took a step back asked forgiveness. Guess who, none other than Prez hopeful Mike Huckabee. Yep eye to eye with the Gov. himself. He is a extremely nice man and asked if I was there for his book. Nope I said and showed the copy of Rollback by Thomas Woods, he said "good book" and then he asked the question. My reply - 'well if you had dropped out of the race last time, the idiot in charge would be named Romney not Obama and that's just unforgivable.'
He shook my hand and walked on. Guess he took that as a no. And he'd be right!

HAHAHAHA! There you go Sharky, rubbing elbows with those high falutin' types. What are you? Jockeying for the post of campaign manager? You...

If the primaries started today I'd have to go with Romney as the winner. He's got the cash. Sadly for your side though is that he would do exactly what Obama would do.


Romney also cares about his hair. Much like John Edwards.

Red - stirring the pot is my specialty !
Liberally Depraved - exactly, but this go the money bet is Trump. He knows how to work with no money.
Griper - I giggled all the way home!
Christopher - me too buddy, me too!

I can't stand Huck but I would have been too surprised to come up with anything as clever as you did. Nice.

Well, just think, this time we have plenty of big egos on the republican side vying for a nomination:

Palin, Gingrich, Romney, Trump...

I thinks that bluepitbull should try screwing his head on straighter.Not the brightest bulb on the Christmas tree.
He's sort of strange. I think he's got a loose screw. Yes, he has a screw loose somewhere. He wears a heavy jacket in the middle of summer.Calling him an idiot would be an insult to all the stupid people. His elevator doesn't go all the way to the top
And things like that.

Magdalena - just rying to get this straight, you follow him to anothers site calling him screwy.... Sorry just keeping to the facts as seen.

Red my dear, I wouldn't mess up cajun hunnie!

Inno - I walked out, drove home 60+ miles giggling like a school girl.

Blue - stalkers, have we? I like Herman Cain. But like Paul, he's got slim pick'ns. I have to say with shame, Trump will pull out the northeast and the only bright side I see of his winning - he knows how to operate with no money and turning it into something. I think he would push for energy independence - NOW and making profit to boot. Now that I get to thinking about it, were screwed anyway, why not him. The press will make it interesting turning on one of their beloved.
