What do you get when a political party has:

1. An obese self-parody clown talk show host as its defacto voice?

2. A party chairman who first attacks said clown, then grovels before his throne?

3. A straw poll winner who is not the leader who will bring them back to political prominence (the two best candidates for said roll -- Ron Paul and Sarah Palin -- finished 3rd and 4th, respectively) but rather an intellectual zero with no core beliefs (but a really great head of hair)?

4. A parade of bozo "experts" who insist that, since moving left worked so well in 2008, that's the only answer for the party to be successful in 2010 and 2012?

Why, you get political suicide, of course! That shadow you see circling Team Elephant? That would be me and my friends, waiting to devour the rotting carcass that awaits.

Watching a political party commit suicide is an ugly thing. Ugly indeed.
