Help me out here.

If, as Mitch McConnell claimed at CPAC today, the Democrats’ 2016 “presidential ticket looks like a rerun of the Golden Girls,” given that the all-star lineup at CPAC 2013 includes in its cast Jeb Bush, Eric Cantor, Steven Crowder, Ted Cruz, Carly Fiorina, Newt Gingrich, Bobby Jindal, Michele Bachmann, Steve King, Ron Johnson, Wayne LaPierre, Dana Loesch, Reince Preibus, Sarah Palin, Rand Paul, Rick Perry, Mitt Romney, Wayne Allyn Root, Marco Rubio, Paul Ryan, Rick Santorum, Donald Trump, Scott Walker, Ben Shapiro, Allen West, the ghost of Andrew Breitbart, and Mitch himself, what rerun shows would best encapsulate:

(a) CPAC 2013?
(b) the Republicans’ prospective 2016 presidential ticket?

To give you an idea of the audience, this was the spectacular scene at Ben Shapiro’s speech


and this was the throng for Donald Trump’s


More: Wonkette highlights Mitch’s delight at his own, er, “zinger,” of which the wonders of modern technology allow me to offer screencaps:


He followed it up with:

Yeah, we ... we’ve got Rand Paul, we’ve got Marco Rubio, we’ve got Paul Ryan, and a slew of smart, young, and energetic governors ready to take America into the future.

Which got a bigger laugh than his earlier quip.

Oops - I meant this minority outreach.
(why does that never happen when I bother to preview?)

How about this show?

I don’t even

I think “Beverly Hillbillies” would describe CPAC.  I think “That’s My Bush” reruns will describe the 2016 GOP race.

I’m thinking more like Mad Men, with all the stylishness and beauty turned into a second helping of misogyny and future-fear.

I don’t even

Uh, me neither.  Weird.

Sheriff Andy Taylor was funny though.

That’s pretty funny coming from a guy who looks like Estelle Getty!
