(With apologies to Abbot and Costello and their routine “Who’s on first?)
"Costello: Look, you gotta frontrunner in these GOP primaries?
Abbott: Now wouldn't this be a fine mess without one?
Costello: What’s his name?
Abbott: Well, let's see, we have Romney in first, Cain second, and Perry third...
Costello: Romney is in first?
Costello: Not everyone thinks Romney is the frontrunner.
Abbott: If Romney’s not the frontrunner then who is?
Abbott: But you said Cain was in second.
Costello: In some recent national polls Cain is first.
Abbott: Okay. Let’s see if I have this right – Cain is first and Romney second?
Costello: Well not exactly. You see some polls have Perry in first.
Abbott: Perry is in first?
Costello: According to some people.
Abbott: Is anyone really in first?
Costello: Not really. It keeps changing every week.
Abbott: That’s it! Romney is first, Cain is second, and Perry is third…and I don’t give a darn!”
