It's a REPORT, Oh Grand Dumbass.  What do you want, hand signals!?!

My laughter was generated by the idea that Mitch Daniels and Tim Pawlenty are the tying front-runners with the best odds in the GOP list; but that is questionable by Romney having the best GOP odds in the overall list.

That, and the cumulative list of those with 50 to 1 odds...  Humor abounds.

As for a 'bet', I'd rather spend my fiat money on spray paint - it has a better return value.

My prediction--and I am notoriously wrong--is that Obama will not run for re-election or will withdraw in a similar manner as Johnson did leaving the Dems in a hole with less than a year to go before the election.  Just waiting to s whom the TLC endorses.

He laughed, but I do not see where he put up any money. He could bet on Obama to loose, but he did not do that. All mouth
