Let The $4 Billion Rumpus Begin! (Self-Serv Index™ Edition)

The hardworking staff has always had a soft spot for the quadrennial Shotgun Index, reflecting which presidential candidate voters would rather drive cross-country with. (Never making it into the HOV Lane: Bob Dole, Al Gore, John Kerry.)

But the current crop of GOP presidential hopefuls presents a real dilemma in that regard. Santorum would never taking a break from driving; Gingrich would stop every few miles; Paul would keep picking up hitchhikers; and Romney, well, you know . . .

But there might be an alternative via this TV spot from the Super PAC Winning Our Future:

 

And there you have it at the :30  mark:

Newt is the only one who understands what we’re going through today. We’re looking at five or six dollar gas. Romney’s not the type to pump his own gas.

  1. Well, if they’re seeing $5 gas at the moment, they’re hallucinating. Or maybe just wishing REALLY hard. (Avg price now is $3.75 or so.) But they better wish harder – fewer people are blaming Obama than blamed Bush in ’05.

    If they’re from New Jersey, they’re not pumping their own gas regardless. So Christie is safe.
