More from the “Life Among the Repubs” file, via McKay Coppins’ twitter feed: evidence that Hugh Hewitt may have inhaled too many paint fumes while hagiographing Dubya, from the
nutball eccentricly conservative Washington Examiner:
Saying it’s “obvious,” best-selling author and national talk show host Hugh Hewitt is urging all of the nearly two dozen potential Republican presidential candidates to pick 2012 GOP nominee Mitt Romney as their vice presidential choice.
In his upcoming book The Queen, directed at Hillary Rodham Clinton, Hewitt said that Romney has the influence and status of former Vice President Dick Cheney, making him a formidable campaigner and White House partner.
That, he added in the book provided to Secrets, will force Clinton to make an equally top-notch pick, not somebody like Joe Biden, the “lovable dolt” chosen by Barack Obama.
The eventual GOP nominee, wrote Hewitt, should pick Romney for just one term, using his fundraising power and credibility to beat Clinton. By serving just one term, Romney wouldn’t be a political threat to the president he serves and it would create loyalty from potential successors…
That’s a strategic proposal absurd in so many and various ways as to approach the Wingnut Event Horizon. And, before the question of nutpicking is raised, remember Hewitt is not just another wingnut on the internet — he’s going to emcee the second GOP primary debate. (I know the usual verb would be ‘moderate’, but Politico notes that Hewitt “will not moderate the debate… but he will participate in a question-and-answer session.”) I can only hope some humorist will convince him to wear a red jacket and a top hat…
Apart from mocking the RWNJ circus, what’s on the agenda for the day?
