There have been a lot of Republican debates on TV recently. I haven't watched them because I don't own a TV anymore, but from what I understand, pretty much every Republican is trying to run for President. It reminds me of a comic strip I drew four years ago.
I usually wait until there are only two or three people left, before I research the candidates and figure out which one I like. I mean, the election is over a year away. There's no reason to research all the candidates now, because most of them will drop out of the running.
And boy, have people been dropping out of the race! First, there was Donald Trump, although I secretly think that the "Trump will run for President" rumor was just a practical joke that got out of hand. Then, there was the governor of New Jersey. And most recently, Sarah Palin.
I think it might have been interesting if Sarah Palin had decided to run for President, mainly because I don't know much about her. All I know about her is that back in 2008, when she was running as John McCain's Vice-President candidate, people said she was crazy. They said, "Don't vote for John McCain, because he's super old, so he's going to die in two months. Then Crazy Sarah Palin will become President."
John McCain is still alive, by the way. I knew he would be.
[EDIT: I don't believe the idea that the stress of being President would have killed John McCain, for two reasons. First, he impresses me as a very strong individual who can handle a lot of stress. Second, stress hasn't been a major cause of death among the Popes, even though Popes tend to be older than McCain, and they hold their offices for longer.]
Well, now there are no more Republicans in the running whose names I actually know, so it's going to be a surprise to me to see who will become the official Republic Candidate.
