Cenk wants to crown the first-ever Clown of the Day, and he needs your help.
Today we have three candidates:
1. Mitt Romney campaign
In an upcoming cover story for The New York Times’ Sunday magazine about Mitt Romney’s campaign strategy, there’s one piece of advice that stands out:
Among [Romney campaign’s chief strategist, Stuart] Stevens’s colorful analogies, the unlikeliest is one in which he compares Romney to Michael Vick, the dynamic quarterback of the Philadelphia Eagles. “Michael Vick’s not a real good pocket guy,” Stevens told me. “So don’t tell him he can’t roll out. Try to make him the best rollout guy that’s ever played.”

2. Michele Bachmann
If elected, Bachmann would close the U.S. Embassy in Iran. Except how we don’t have one, and haven’t since 1980. —U.S. Embassy In Iran (Which Doesn’t Exist) Would Be Closed Under My Watch, Huffington Post. Suggested by TYT follower @ElPolitics.
3. Newt Gingrich
Gingrich has been the lone Republican candidate who wouldn’t sign the Family Leader’s controversial anti-gay marriage pledge. But Bob Vander Plaat’s, the Iowa group’s head, has now said he expects Gingrich to sign on, which may indicate they’ll change the language to placate him. Plus it means one very small distinction keeping him out of this particular mess will now be gone. —via ThinkProgress
Vote below and Cenk will sound off on the Clown of the Day during tonight’s live rehearsal—we’ll post quotes or maybe even video if everything goes smoothly.
