The GOP candidate qualified to be president

-Headline of the day-
"Grassley on the GOP Field: 'Only Two or Three of Them are Qualified to be President.'"

Iowa Republican Sen. Chuck Grassley spoke to reporters yesterday, apparently to make the super-important announcement that he had no idea who the hell he was going to back for GOP nominee in 2012.

Part of his problem; the GOP field sucks. "[O]nly two or three of them are qualified to be president..." he said."It wouldn't do me much good to back somebody that won in Iowa if they can't carry on the campaign elsewhere."

Which leaves the question; who exactly is it that Chuck believes is qualified? "Is it Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Tea Party)?" the report asks. "Reality TV and real estate star Donald Trump? Former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich, who has been struggling with foreign policy lately? Healthcare champion Mitt Romney? Or, maybe, Sarah Palin?"

Well, when you put it that way, it is a little bit of a mystery, isn't it? (Iowa Democratic Party)

-Speaking of which...-
Shelly Bachmann once again displays her masterful grasp of the facts:
