    to piss off a significant portion of the base. If the Religious Reich doesn't get one of their Golden Boys, they might just well stay home in November. If the new candidate isn't to the corporatists' liking, they'll zip up their wallets or direct their resources to keeping control of the House so they can stymie Obama that way. If the candidate isn't an anti-government doctrinaire, the Tea Party contingent will take a few months off from blasting Obama and switch to blasting the Republicans.

    While a brokered convention could be fun, I think that for good or ill they're stuck with Romney. The only other possibility is that Romney picks his running mate, then steps down for "health reasons", either his own or his wife's and whoever his running mate is picks up the standard. Maybe as an award Romney can get a cushy ambassador's job after a "miraculous recovery" credited to secret Mormon practices.
