Political wrangling is a curse in more ways than one. So far we have seen several GOP aspirants throw in the towel. Palin, Bachman, Cain, Huntsman. now Perry. Just think of all the money that has been uselessly squandered by that collection of resignees.
A lot of people and PACS laid some serious bread on those failed campaigns. If we could have used foresight rather than hindsight to put that money to productive use, much good could have come of it. The lost zillions of dollars could have been used for pursuit of the common good, like stem cell research, orphanages, rehab facilities, education, and much more. But no, it was pissed away with no benefit to anyone except the print and electronic media.
Scuse me, I'm on a rant against senseless waste.
