Presidential Hopefuls at the Starter's Gate: CNN Excludes Michelle Bachman and Sarah Palin

Original post made by Burton Rasmuffin, Avignon, on Jul 27, 2014

CNN has posted a recent poll showing that the Republican run-off for the right to be our next presidential also-ran promises to be even more gut-bustingly entertaining than the Republican race of 2012. Dozens of protesters have directed their wrath at the liberal leaning CNN for omitting last election cycle's frontrunner, and Iowa's 2012 straw poll victor, Michelle Bachman, as well as the inestimable Sarah Palin. Stated one prominent Iowa Republican: "How are we going to impeach Obama without either Bachman or Palin as our next president?" More to come!

I have no problem with either palin or bachmann running for office. The more the sillier plus it's the American way!

Everybody knows that they're both over...let the circus begin!


ps the day is coming when even "illegals" will have the RIGHT TO VOTE!

Hilarious...CNN is the most biased new orginazation this country has ever seen. Wonder if they will conduct a survey about Hilary and her lies, Bengazi failures, defending of a child rapist, back door money deals or her sham of a marriage? What ever happened ro real journalism?

President Obama is having a round of golf today with CNN anchors. This is while the U. S. Embassy in Libya is evacuated due to ongoing violence.

@Michael Austin,

Yes, it's amazing that history's greatest tyrant, Our Dear Beloved Leader, has any time at all to tyrannize us the way he does when he's on the golf course almost 60% of the time George W Bush would spend golfing when he was president.

And remember when Clinton was golfing, was approached 2 days before 9/11 and told by NSA agents that a terrorist airplane attack was imminent within the next few days, and he told the agents "Okay, you've covered your asses so now you can return to D.C." Oops, I guess that was George W. Bush wasn't it? But forgive me, as now I'm beginning to sound biased like CNN.

We need Bachman! We need Palin! Or, hey, that little Indian guy from Louisian sounds pretty good, too! Or the fat bully from New Jersey! What a gasser he'd be! Or, on second thought, how about the guy who sends his state's national guard down to the border when undocumented crossings are down 60%? Oh, you say the Nat'l guard is there for the children?

Wait! What about the Canadian/Cuban guy who shut down our government a while back? What, he's not a real American? So what! He's Republican!
Or Jeb Bush ... or ... y'know, on second thought, just forget it.
