The Stupid Party Starts Digging Its 2012 Grave

A little over a week ago I asked a question: “Will The Stupid Party Stick to the MBM’s Script?” I used a pair of posts from the ineffably brutal Stacey McCain* (one from his site; one posted on AmSpec), to warn that the Establishment GOP (aka: The Stupid Party) was dangerously close to making, to me, a politically deadly mistake by loudly (ie: money) backing a Beltway-Approved™ candidate, instead of standing back and let primary voters sort it out on their own.

Seems to be, I was right in that regard; the GOP Establishment, having been dashed in their Quixotic affair with Gov. Fatty McAwesome, have announced they’re ALL IN FOR MITTENS!

“A lot of us who normally would have been in this presidential race a long time ago, have been waiting for Christie to make a decision,” said Georgette Mosbacher, a Republican uber-fund-raiser and finance co-chair of the Republican National Committee who was among a group of Republican bundlers hoping to convince Christie to enter the race. “I think tomorrow, we’ll be contacting one another and probably put something together with Romney.”

“I’m going to go with Mitt Romney,” said John Catsimatidis, another donor who had been intrigued with Christie, in a brief phone interview this afternoon.

snip…

Mosbacher conceded there was “some disappointment” at Christie’s decision, but said the public flirtation with Christie wouldn’t make it tougher to raise for Romney, especially with Texas governor Rick Perry suddenly slipping in the polls after a couple of disastrous debate performances.

“Look, we’ll raise the money that’s necessary to beat Obama,” she said. “It’s not going to be any harder than it would have been a month ago, or two months ago, or six months ago. Now it’s pretty clear. Perry has dropped pretty quickly. And I would say that the race is now Romney and Obama. Quite frankly, the enthusiasm wasn’t there at the outset. He’s less conservative than a lot of us would like. However, our first and foremost goal is to defeat Obama. And we do believe Romney, in terms of independents, will be a strong candidate. We will coalesce behind him now.”

Understand something, Tea Party Sheeples: these people are better than you. Notice that in that entire article, the name “Herman Cain” never makes an appearance; he doesn’t exist in their world view, and anyone considering his candidacy to be credible are just run of the mill, bien-pensant fools, who don’t understand the Big Picture.

which seems to tell me that it might be time to reform
