RDS: The ALLCAPS NEWTERS Signal the Outbreak of Severe Romney Derangement Syndrome

Alas, having served two terms, George is no longer eligible as the dream conservative candidate.

Over at neo neocon the Kwazy Konservatives Kristallnacht of the Long Knives has exploded into ALLCAPS in neo-neocon's The Sentiment . I note that it is "The Sentiment" and not "The Prestige" as in

Every great magic trick consists of three parts or acts. The first part is called "The Pledge". The magician shows you something ordinary: a deck of cards, a bird or a man. He shows you this object. Perhaps he asks you to inspect it to see if it is indeed real, unaltered, normal. But of course... it probably isn't. The second act is called "The Turn". The magician takes the ordinary something and makes it do something extraordinary. Now you're looking for the secret... but you won't find it, because of course you're not really looking. You don't really want to know. You want to be fooled. But you wouldn't clap yet. Because making something disappear isn't enough; you have to bring it back. That's why every magic trick has a third act, the hardest part, the part we call "The Prestige"."

The onslaught begins when I remark, quite calmly, that
Sadly, the second coming of George Washington has been cancelled for the duration.
This is followed by one reliapundit who Says:
Which is far too much for one gellieba who punches in CAPSLOCK to assert:
After which neo is hard pressed to keep the outbreak of Romney Derangement Syndrome under control.

Oh well, I guess RDS is just something we're going to have to live with until this thing is decided. At which point the carping will become worse should anyone other than George Washington get the nomination. Until then, as the great Jackie Gleason says,

Upon closer observation, Reliapundit appears to be a knuckle-dragging morlock. (I got into it today with him, too. The more fool I.)

Oh, come on, it's hilarious. All the Romney supporters and the poor suckers who talked themselves into supporting him as the least bad option among a sorry bunch are now in absolute panic. Romney has always been a lousy candidate, he can't speak honestly, fight, or inspire. But he did summon the dark side early on with his attacks on Perry. It was at that point that Mitt went on my shit list. And amazingly, when Perry dropped out he didn't throw an endorsement Mitt's way. Strange world, eh?

What makes you think Mitt would be a good president? How many business people have been good presidents? For that matter, how many finance people have been good presidents? Mitt's talents and training aren't suited to the job nor his temperament to a turn on the sand of the Coliseum. Politics is, after all, a blood sport and we are in need of a fighter.

I'm not willing to vote for someone who doesn't SHARE MY EXACT DNA! Not political DNA--literal DNA.

And, since I have no twin, I'm STAYING HOME IN NOVEMBER!!!

Take that, RINOs!

All of a sudden I'm unknown. Hmmm.

Gosh, me too. Mencken would laugh.

Looks like it was temporary. Hopefully it wasn't our betters throwing a tantrum at the revelation of the gilded calf.

I am a Romney supporter. I don't think he is the perfect candidate, but I do think he is the best candidate for the job that needs to be done to rescue this country from the abyss.

I don't mind honest criticism of him or any candidate, but last week made me so angry. I'll give you one example: Left and right, old or new media, radio and TV, the word of the day(s) was, "Romney REFUSES to make his tax returns public." Followed by what an incompetent and weak man he really is.

Romney never refused to turn over his returns. He did not want the distraction right now that releasing them is sure to bring on the campaign, so he said he'd do it in April when the 2011 return was ready. It didn't matter, the headlines remained, "Romney Refuses..."

The man is neither incompetent or weak. And the whole meme is a bad rap on him that probably cost him SC.

Now who benefited, well of course Newt and Obama. Newt finally managed to finish higher than 4th place and Obama, who has no intention of debating or at least not more than once, is happy he might be able to avoid the one man whose poll numbers say can beat him and who is so squeaky clean Obama won't be able to dump private divorce records into public view to defeat him. Newt, OTOH, is a wetdream for Obama and Axelrod.

So, the feet stompers are getting their way and Romney is releasing his 2011 Estimate and his 2010 Return on Tuesday. What else happens on Tuesday? The State of the Union Address. Some times it isn't he who bloviates the loudest or the most that is the most delightfully devious and diabolical.

Joy, I might share my exact DNA with you. Do you have any pictures?

I'm looking for a president, not a messiah, and it seems to me that too many conservatives haven't learned from the lesson of the current President Messiah.

You guys can hem and haw for elections and sechlike, but I'm going all out for violent revolution. Fun fun fun, til O'Bammy takes the 2nd away.

It's pretty damn entertaining to watch the rational, sensible people throwing a screaming tantrum and calling everyone stupid. Brings me back to those teenage years...

Romney's going to blow Florida, and in attacking Newt mercilessly, he's going to blow the rest of his campaign. Now that's smart (TM).
