  •  But if you follow the numbers the GOP voters (6+ / 0-)

    are staying away in droves. A 13+% drop in participation isn't them getting motivated by the Human Sweater Vest or the Moon Based Sleep Inducer and who could forget Goldy Blocks? There's no there, there in the Republican electorate this time around. So when does it finally lurch to a conclusion?

      the Scumentum.  He is a very, very dangerous man.  I wish we could export him to Somalia.

      I call him Rick Scumtorum because he IS scum: pond scum, with the brain of an alga.

      •  He dangerous and self destructive at the same (4+ / 0-)

        time. For the moment, at least, I see him imploding. This week was an interesting test, the GOP went all out in the war on women (a social conservative issue he owns) and it blew up in their faces. For now he's doing more harm than good to the GOP. For now.

    •  They are staying away because of Romney (3+ / 0-)

      and the fact that they have no other choices but Romney and the others.

       Believe me if any other GOP anyone came on the scene right now tonight...by tomorrow morning they would be at the top of the polls.  Palin, Rubio, Christie...you name it...anybody and they would be top of the polls.

      •  The desire for a new not-Romney is strong (0+ / 0-)
