The life of a DC gasbag is a sweet one. Take the latest advice from GOP maven Mike Murphy to Mittens (emphasis added):
“He should drop the biography-based message. Nobody wants a well-intentioned accountant in charge when the house is on fire. For the first time [????] in his professional life, Romney needs to stop thinking and calculating and get stupid. The race now is about his heart… And while the cerebral Romney [????] may recoil at the psychological striptease this requires, it is how people pick their President in modern America. Romney must fill that vacuum or else others will maliciously fill it for him.”
From where I sit, Mittens has no problem being stupid. Nor does he have any problem selling his soul and saying and/or doing anything he feels might help him win. I mean, Mitt is a guy who is willing to completely denounce everything his father believed and is exactly the kind of vacuous politician his father hated. And he sold his father out just to appeal to the Conservative mob running Republican politics these days. After that sell-out, I don’t see how he is holding back from any over-the-top pandering to the wingnuts. Mitt is all in with the crazy-town talk. His problem is that the CONservative base doesn’t believe him and never will until he starts demanding Barack Obama’s birth certificate and promises to deport him back to Kenya as the first official act of a President Romney. And even then, Mittens will never out crazy Newt, Rick and the rest.
Still, Murphy has a sweet gig. It must be nice to get paid to offer dribble like the notion that Mittens might still have any integrity left to ruin in his race for the GOP nomination.
ps. I’m on my way to Detroit this weekend to see family and look forward to a closer look at the clown parade in action. I’ll try to get up a few reports from the field.
