Senator Abandons Hope Of Giving America Hotter President Than Obama

Sen. John Thune, the South Dakota Republican, has ended speculation that he might run for president in 2012. Instead he’ll continue being a conservative prick in the Senate; “There is a battle to be waged over what kind of country we are going to leave our children and grandchildren, and that battle is happening now in Washington, not two years from now.” Hey, that still leaves megahunk Tim Pawlenty.
