Anybody here see the GOP debate last night? What is that, the 547th? I gather that it was a bad night for Mitt Romney, who did what he doesn’t usually do in these debates: lose. I, for one, cannot believe that in the year of Our Lord 2011, only weeks away from the GOP primaries, that the frontrunner is Newton LeRoy Gingrich. It’s got to be da End Times, cap.

When I think of the unloved Mitt — how he’s really the only chance the Republicans have of defeating Obama, but how much the GOP base does not not not want him — I am reminded of these two well-known Churchill quotes:

“Democracy is the worst form of government, except for all those other forms that have been tried from time to time.” 


“The Americans always do the right thing — after they’ve exhausted all the alternatives.”
