break out the cornfetti

The guy who couldn’t beat Obama just gave his endorsement to the guy who couldn’t beat McCain…

Romney began referring to his razor-thin margin as a “landslide,” dubbing his campaign bus the “Landslide Lounge” and nicknaming his top adviser in Iowa “Landslide.”

ha. ha ha.

What was supposed to be a closely guarded secret, culminating in a surprise appearance by Mr. McCain at a school in Manchester, leaked out in the early hours of Wednesday morning, apparently at the hands of those close to Mr. McCain — much to the chagrin of aides to Mr. Romney, according to advisers.

a school-age boy… asked [Romney] about a military alliance with Iraq now that the United States has withdrawn from the country — a question Mr. Romney quickly turned over to Mr. McCain.

    A “school-aged boy”? Asked about a treaty with Iraq? The *hole* Stupid Party has gone “South Park”!!!!

    My money sez there will be an R Convention fucking blowup if Mittens, the Establishment nominee is pushed on them! The crap about The Tea Party endorsing Ritt Momney is a mfcsMedia wishful ploy to get OBoBo reelected……

    To me, Mitt letting McCain anywhere within a bazillion miles
    of him, is like inviting the political curse of death on himself.
    I also consider that this totally demonstrates that Mitt just
    might be another ‘across the aisle’ compromiser like McLame.

    The kiss of death.

    And if the media calls someone a Tea Party Favorite they’re probably not. Shit, I heard a CBS reporter call Gingrich one.

    McCain is a bit of a flip flopper too, ain’t he?

    There is no gain in replacing one Liberal with another Liberal. Rommy is just another Obama, but without the teleprompter.

    Both came up with their own forms of universal health care and both are liberal as sin.

    Anybody but those two jokers.

    Many months ago Mark Levin, I think it was, said that Romney can’t run against Obomneycare so we lose a whole dimension of arguments against our national socialist / chavista “ruler.”

    What if the RNC has that as part of their plan? They *want* Obomneycare along with all the other government give-away abilities that are against the Constitution. They see themselves, and all of us, going the way of England–where we have red socialists “up against” less-red (pink?) socialists–with a few solid non-whores to make it look legit.

    My gut says McCain is the nail in the “Romney can be conservative” coffin. (Wishful thinking?) I won’t vote for Romney. I voted for Sarah Palin’s ticket last time and that was a mistake. Romney must not get votes that are not FOR HIM or the RNC maintains power.
