The rest of the GOP pack is a bunch of people who have been politicians for most of their life.

We could still see the godfather's pizza guy, and Trump keeps teasing us about planning to run as well. We also have Rand Paul, who is definitely running and was busy doing non-government stuff before running for senate. And don't forget that the last president from the GOP - as much as they encourage us to forget him - had more years of experience in business than in government.

Fiorina does kind of stand out as someone who has led a large company. Which would be better for her if her leadership wasn't absolutely terrible.

Don't forget, though, terrible leadership in business generally ends up ranking as "above average". HP does still exist as a company, so she did vastly better than a lot of other CEOs who drove their companies straight into the ground. Also remember that both of those strategies generally warrant multi-million dollar bonuses.

I thought I'd go ahead and cut you off at the pass for your next conspiracy. Clearly, the only logical conclusion left is that I must myself be Barack Hussein "Lawnchair" Obama. And much as you know that I am a time-traveling Martian who orchestrated Benghazi to bring about irrevocable fascist anarchist communist socialist islamist atheist rule in this country, you also know that I am a fervent reader of slashdot because I have free time (thanks to time travel!) to do such things.

So yes, I am the POTUS. I read slashdot regularly. And I am looking forward to collapsing - like a lawnchair - repeatedly to GOP pressures over the next 2 years.

I counted at least three silly conspiracies that you stuffed in there. Can't you bring it home for us and tie it in to Benghazi or President Lawnchair's birth certificate?

Granted, your newest one in here - that facts themselves are just democrat conspiracies - is quite a doozy - but I know you have more up your sleeve yet. Come on, tell us how this speech was itself an impeachable offense!

Hold on, I'm too busy destroying old copies of President Lawnchair's real Kenyan birth certificates to take questions on the Health Insurance Industry Bailout Act of 2010. I'll have to get back to you once I have satisfied the leader on this matter.

On a more serious note, the religious grandstanding within your party is in some ways similar to the sunni-shia conflict in Islam. You have a small loud faction that are dedicated to spreading their preferred message - and supporting their declaration of themselves being the best adherent - while most people could really care less. The problem though is that much like the sunni-shia conflict, your conflict gets more news than the millions who don't make a huge fuss over it. In the end you end up giving everyone else - including those who have no preference in the religious front at all - a black eye.
