  •  The GOP establishment is stuck now. (7+ / 0-)

    They're panicking with Santorum same as with Newt. Problem is they can't figure an angle to gang up on Santorum the way they did Newt. The establishment helped Mitt tremendously after SC, but Newt was an easy target.

    What are they gonna say about Santorum in the primary?

    Too crazy? Nope, can't say that.
    Catholic? Nope, Mormon is "worse".
    Unelectable? Nope, that'll piss off the base.
    What?

    The establishment is pressuring mitt to amp up cuz they can't find a way to assist.

    Sucks to be them. Romney's been awful quiet these last 36 hours.

    I've become re-radicalized. Thanks a lot you bunch of oligarchical fascist sons-of-bitches. But once again, I have no choice. Bring it the fuck on.

    •  I try to imagine Romney "amping up" and I laugh. (3+ / 0-)

      Unless it's money and firing people, he just plain lacks the passion necessary to come off as believable. I think he'll ultimately be the nominee, but this is going to drag on for awhile until Santorum implodes and Romney is battered and bruised.

      The real irony is that the best thing to happen for the Republican party would be for an ultra-rightwing candidate to go down in flames so hard, they can smack their Tea Party trolls back under their bridges. Romney going down in flames might produce the opposite, with the Tea Party truly taking control of the party only to drive it into the ground and force a massive restructuring just to remain viable as a party.

      •  heh. i hope he makes the attempt at passion. (0+ / 0-)

        that would be comedy gold, as usual. Perhaps he can get a new chip that has a passion emotion.

        i think you're 100% right that the GOP will put up romney, lose and the radical wing will say ,"see? fuck that moderate shit. we keep losing because ya'll keep putting up rinos. from now on...bring the crazee"

        Good times.
