GOP 2012 field grows like the corn in Kansas

Looks like it going to be another cycle where there are so many GOP hopefuls we won't be able to remember them all. But a few will stand out, for their sheer crazy if nothing else. Though there aren't any actually declared candidacies yet, think it's clear Bachmann has been testing the waters for a while and her "Official Tea Party Response" to the SOTU was a pretty big signal that's she's in.

Today I see, Jim DeMint coyly demurring on chasing the dream into the heart of the corn belt. Even more amusing, or terrifying depending on your POV, is Sharron Angle's apparent interest as she joins a raft of other fringe wannabes.

I'm already losing track. Off the top of my head, we have Thune, Huckabee, Mittens, Pawlenty, Giuliani, Barbour, Newt, Santorum, Mitch Daniels and some fringe mutterings about drafting Pence or Bolton. All that's missing is Christine O'Donnell.

And no, I'm not going to mention the Yukon Grifter. Even if no one else can quit The Quitter, I'm holding to the embargo through the end of February unless she does something truly newsworthy. Idiotic spewings don't count.
