It's not my fault I'm an idiot
Simply amazing one would think that if you’re running for President you or your flunkies would know that there are rules. Rules you must follow in order to be in the game. Rules you must follow if you really want to be the big enchilada. Rules which if you do not follow, you is screwed. Or possibly, it simply showcases that you aren't really serious in your pursuit of the highest office in the land. 
Or maybe because both of you are so special you warrant breaking the rules just because you think you merit it somehow. Sorry, neither one of you are special in any way. Except for your exceptional gall to think you're better then the rest of us. But surprise you ain't. Both Newt Gingrich and Rick Perry screwed up big time this time [Or their handlers did]. Now they are trying to change the rules just months before the Virginia primary which falls out on March 6, 2012 on Super TuesdayReally. And now Newt's people are actually whining that they are being treated unfairly. We should forget the rules, if they won't allow all the voters the opportunity to vote, for all the candidates. How unfair! [This of course at the same time the republicans have been trying to stifle voter registration to minorities and the elderly. I didn’t see that one coming (sometimes I surprise myself as I’m writing) Dang, these guys are good. 
So I’m expecting the usual to occur. The excuses by members of the Right. Here it comes, I know, go ahead; others are being un-American. Hmm, kind of like Obama is un-American, right?. How ironic is that fellows, kind of like you adapting the Constitutions' Amendments, tweaking their meaning to suit your old world racist mentality. Kind of life taking your narrow world views, disregarding all facts and proof. Simply claim you're right and everyone who disagrees with you is wrong, evil, un-American, a socialist or worse different.
Sorry, even if none of the above is true and you’re correct with your opinions and your choices, you would still not be eligible for the primary in Virginia. You didn’t get enough signatures. Whoops, you are out of that state’s contest. No excuses this time. You knew what the rules were long ago. If you can't follow these simply rules, how the heck are you gonna be able to run our country. Maneuver the ever-changing overseas challenges. Make the dreaded decision to start another War. To let young American men and women die in battle. Whoops. This screw-up moment by both of these candidates showcases in a nutshell the sad truth about this year's republican candidates running to replace the President. Simply put, none of them is really is up to the task. Not one of these Bozo's has lasted a week without something coming out that's a negative. Each day it seems something even more ridiculous comes up to top the previous comments or revelations about one or several of the candidates. Too often for my comfort these revelations consist of anti-American, racist, sexist, gay discrimination and simply just plain stupid or dumb.
So Newt and Rick, sit hack, open a tall one, sit back and enjoy the primaries. And remember its only one state. Have faith, I’m sure it’ll happen again with this years group of candidates. You got 49 other states to try to catch up.
Just one man’s opinion
