Good for Mitt. Stand up for yourself, man! Even if it's to say moderate stuff that I disagree with.

That tablet is amazing. The spread of cheap technology is uber-democratizing. (In both good ways and bad. But more good than bad.)

I am liking Mitt. I bet under certain circumstances you and I might both vote for him.

Ben (The Tiger) -

I support him in a sort of productive balancing fashion -- I think that a President Romney negotiating with a Tea Party-esque Congress could actually get the budget in order.

Alan -

There won't be "a Tea Party-esque Congress" so no need to worry about that. They will turn on Mitt if he gets the nomination and, in turn, the voters will turn on them.

Ben (The Tiger) -

Oh, you didn't think the Republicans would win Congress in the first place.

Alan -

I didn't say it. El Predicto did. I was listening to Ohio talk radio last night and heard an interview of Santorum in which the host raked him over the coals for being nanny state-ish over personal decisions around sex. Santorum exemplifies all that is disliked by all points on the political spectrum about Tea Party meddlers. I say this is the election the GOP deals with its own fringe.

Romney's going to win the nomination.

If he wins it weakly (i.e., has to broker the convention because he comes up short of 1144), Rand Paul gets put on the ticket. Which actually would be a very good thing.
