Hayley Barbour Not Running For President

Our hopes for a Dukes Of Hazzard revival go down in flames.

Haley Barbour said Monday that he won’t run for president in 2012, removing a fundraising powerhouse with establishment clout from the Republican primary field.

“This has been a difficult, personal decision, and I am very grateful to my family for their total support of my going forward, had that been what I decided,” the Mississippi governor said in a statement.

The courting the racist southern vote primary is now wide, wide open.
