"Frantic updates on the debt-limit squabble bringing you down? Let's focus on something less immediate, but perhaps equally depressing: the race for the 2012 Republican presidential nomination. Alas, so far, the GOP field resembles a 'Hollywood-for-the-ugly' version of the mid-2000s VH1 reality show The Surreal Life, which brought together 'a select group of past-their-prime celebrities,' like Corey Feldman and Vanilla Ice, and made them jockey for attention."
