It’s funny depressing ’cause it’s true. There’s no one out there now: Jindal blew his big debut after the state of the union and Paul Ryan’s faded after his votes for TARP and the AIG bonus tax. Cornyn’s looking for people to recruit for Senate races and has come up empty everywhere except Connecticut — which is why he’s already whispering about a filibuster-proof Democratic majority. What good is being tied on the generic ballot if you can’t find anyone to run?

Dude, we’re less popular than Venezuela.
