Tam's post on the Republican field is getting a lot of linkage. I agree with her suspicion that the GOP can't find anyone better who will take the job, leaving the primary race open to newbies, second-rankers and the mildly nutty. --And Ron Paul.
Really, if Mitt Romney is the most durable dude they can come up with, I have to wonder if that party will last much longer (and why they are so willing to let a hostile media have so much influence). Sebastian manages to find some good in a possible Romney Presidency, but I have to wonder how many times roughly half the voters are willing to put up with having to choose between a serious beating from the opposing party vs. just being roughed up badly by their own party?
Who remembers the Whigs?
