Disgruntled GOP base

Now that The Romney has pretty much wrapped up the GOP nomination through the power of superior algorithms for gathering money, the GOP base is really fired up about his candidacy. For example, I got this email blast from World Nut Daily this morning:

Even if Mitt Romney is fortunate enough to win the presidency, he's not going to govern like Ronald Reagan or George Washington. He's going to govern much like Republican presidents we've seen in recent times – George H.W. Bush and George W. Bush.
What enthusiasm for their man! Why, you get the impression they're going to run out in November and vote early and often for him!

Well, when the people running against him for the nomination were a circus sideshow, what did World Nut Daily expect, anyhow? Oh wait, World Nut Daily and their editor, Crazy Joe Farah, is *part* of that circus sideshow. Alrighty, then!

  1. Well, hopefully that enthusiasm will help come November. As disappointed as I am with Obama, Romney strikes me as infinitely worse.

  2. It was an unfortunate slip that caused the WND to place anyone in the same hierarchy with the sainted Reagan. Whoever wrote it will in all likelihood have his wingnut membership card revoked.

  3. Reagan couldn't survive as a Rethug today. He raised taxes 11 times!

    What an election cycle this is. Hopey-changey on one side, and the last Rethug clown car survivor on the other.

    Has there ever been a greater incentive for apathy?

    I say that knowing full well that the stakes are enormous and a Rethug victory will be the absolute end of democracy as we think we might have known it.


  4. By the way, Tux... do you have an alibi?
