Tommy, we hardly knew ye.

The scramble for the Republican Party’s presidential nomination became palpably less insane today when Colorado congressman and all-around nutburger Tom “I hate Mexicans and so should you” Tancredo dropped out of the race.

Of course, “less insane” is a rather malleable idea. We still have Mitt Romney (who’s no doubt busting his buttons over getting Tancredo’s endorsement) and Mike Huckabee tussling over Jesus and Lucifer being brothers. Ron “I luvs me some whities” Paul is still polling poorly despite the blimp and the unwavering support of feeble minded fifteen-year-olds the internet over, but he’s hanging tough. And there’s Rudy Giuliani, America’s favorite 9/11 pimp, who seems to be weathering revelations that he misappropriated public funds to spirit his then-cum dumpster, now-wife all over New York City for adulterous trysts.

Bottom line: Less crazy without Tancredo? You betcha. Not at all crazy without Tancredo? No goddamn way.

    Honestly, until I read the news of his tossing in the towel yesterday afternoon, I’d completely forgotten he was running. And he’s “my” Congressman, too. I suppose after so much time watching the somewhat malodorous fellow on the street corner having heated discussions with a street light you just stop noticing.

    “Mother of Sweating Jesus, I thought you were dead.”

    I am! Do yourself a favor and never become involved in (a) probate litigation or (b) deceptive trade practice litigation against multiple defendants with no insurance but oceans of money to spend in their own defense.

    “And he’s ‘my’ Congressman, too.”

    I’m sorry to hear that, Uthgar. The truly good news is that Tancredo isn’t running for reelection to Congress either. That’s a sizeable step in the general direction of civilization for Colorado.
