It’s 8:00 p.m. ET and MSNBC is calling the Florida primary for Mitt Romney.
All the talking heads are saying how it was such an ugly race with all the negative ads and the vitriol between the Romney and Gingrich PAC’s. Well, what were you expecting, a tea party? Oh, sorry, bad example.
But seriously, what else did you expect from them? The Republicans have been like this for years, and this year especially, going after President Obama, who represents everything they despise: an intelligent black man who laughs at them. It’s driving them completely around the bend. How else can you explain a field of candidates that started out with the likes of Michele Bachmann, Herman Cain, Rick Perry, and Donald Trump and is now winnowed down to a pompous hypocrite with delusions of lunar dictatorship and a bobble-headed automaton whose only genuine quality is his phoniness?
Anyway, I’m glad that the circus is packing up and getting out of town. My next-door neighbor with the Santorum sign will be sorely disappointed. I almost feel like going over and telling him, “Cheer up; you’ll find someone else you can channel your homophobia through soon enough. The Republicans never fail at that.”
