Gary Johnson all like, 'screw this mess'; dismounts overcrowded elephant

by Jeremy Hooper

Screen Shot 2011-12-21 At 8.24.45 AmMarriage equality supporter Gary Johnson has announced plans to drop out of the GOP primary and instead run as a Libertarian:

Up to this point, Johnson has been shut out of nearly every debate and therefore shut out of the media's focus. So is the way to get some attention? To pull a Perot and break out of an overcrowded field of candidates who all seem to be as divisive as they are inspiring? A chance to get out of the bridesmaid role and get the chance to be the bride (who supports two brides)?

We'll see. This primary's already a circus -- why not add a third ring?
