Seriously, what in the hell is wrong with the GOP?

Increasingly, I'm getting the feeling that there's something odd afoot. It only requires a scant amount of skepticism - at this point - to wonder just where the GOP is heading with this cast of thousands that are in the longest debate season in the history of the country.
Not a day goes by that multiple miscues, revelations and assertions come to the fore. Notice I didn't say "rumors." The truth is out there, and it's way out there. I'm wondering if there's some master plan to use all these candidates as the stalking horse for someone else who will miraculously arise from an as-yet unknown hidden location. Or, they really have no chance of winning the presidency and figure that the attention, which is stupid at the reality TV level, can somehow draw a big audience/electorate.
Just today, we got these gems:
  • Sir I Do Of Newt (a.k.a. The Marrying Man) said that the 99% movement was "historically inaccurate" and suggested that President Obama should repudiate it. And the non-rich should vote Republican why now? He also said today that after he 1) married one of his high school teachers, 2) cheated on her and told her while she was being treated for cancer that he wanted a divorce, 3) cheated on the second wife with another woman, while prosecuting President Clinton for his infidelity and 4) married the mistress, he "had to go to God and ask for forgiveness." I think even God would have a hard time forgiving this clown but apparently long-term memory loss Republicans don't.
  • Governor Good Hair, speaking to students at St. Anselm College in the pivotal state of New Hampshire, made this statement: "Those of you that will be 21 by November the 12th, I ask for your support and your vote." Gov. Perry has won so many elections, you'd think he'd know - as do I'd safely say 90% of the populace - that the voting eligibility age is 18. The presidential election will be held, as Perry should know if he wants to actually be in it, Nov. 4, 2012.
  • The Pizza Dude (a.k.a. The Ladies Man) is "reassessing" his foolish campaign in the light of the appearance of his supposed mistress. "Reassessing" a return to obscurity, perhaps?
I can hardly wait for tomorrow.
