Romney the Ridiculous

ROMNEY THE RIDICULOUS….Is it too late to change my mind about the Republican nomination? This is just getting farcical. It’s hard to see how Romney can survive if stuff like this keeps trickling out at the rate of once or twice a week.

Who knows? Maybe this will end up like 1996 and the conventional wisdom candidate will end up winning after all. And then, of course, going down to a crushing defeat in the general election. If that’s the storyline, then I guess John McCain might be the smart bet to win the nomination. In any case, his decision to get his pandering and flip-flopping out of the way last year is certainly looking smart.
