There’s an article in today’s NYT re. how the Republican presidential field is shaping up for 2012. Here’s what State Senator Kent Sorensen of Iowa had to say:
I don’t want to bash Sarah Palin, but she lacks substance.
Hmmm… I agree – she does lack substance. Perhaps all Republicans aren’t completely batshit insane after all… Mr. Sorensen then continues:
I believe Michele Bachmann has more substance.
Mr. Sorenson is a leader in the Tea Party “movement” and presumably unfamiliar with the concept of irony. Or substance.
And lest we forget, here is Rep. Bachmann being substantial.
