great sign, Tsar.

greater picture, bob....that one is outstanding.

there's a hole of a lot of fundaments that need changing, miggs

Romney is about enough to prevent the Republican Party from flying apart and keeping it from overt capture by forces of fundamentalism and of futile rejection. Running Romney will prevent the real Republicans and the realistic ones from fleeing and will allow the F-troopers to proclaim that the coming defeat was all because the Party ran a man not sufficiently pure.

When it's over, they can look defeat in the eye and not feel that it's a window into their own pure souls.
