Aw, man! Who left the clown car door open? All the clowns are getting out!
U.S. Sen. John Thune says he decided not to run for president next year after concluding he'd have a difficult time fundraising and that President Barack Obama would be tough to beat.
The South Dakota Republican told The Associated Press on Tuesday that he's not as well-known and wouldn't be able to raise as much money as other potential GOP candidates. But he's not backing any one person because he doesn't know who will end up in the race.
Between this morning disheartening bleak story on Mike Huckabee's can't-do attitude toward running and now this, I'm starting to get a little worried about the entertainment value of the coming GOP battle royale. Right now, though, I'm just trying to keep everything in perspective.
I'll tell you what, though. If I wake up tomorrow and find out that Sarah Palin and Michele Bachmann are having second thoughts, I might just lose the will to go on.
