The Groundhog saw its Shadow in Michigan we're in for another month of winter under a blizzard of Mitt Romney attack ads and Hugh Hewitt's deranged blog postings. The Panderbear managed to say all the right things in Michigan and utter promises that would make a dishonest Lothario trying to score a one night stand blush.

A rodent with more integrity than Mitt.

So here we go, into the South and Super Duper Tuesday with Mittens spending more money than all of the others combined to say Lord only knows what. Add to that the cacophony of brainless talk radio like Rush and Sean Hannity endlessly prattling on about some kind of conservative religious orthodoxy where all we care about are tax cuts, but never specific spending cuts and we practically guarantee ourselves one of those two human financial hemorrhages, Hillary or Obama.

Great. Just great.

It's not just the "cacophony of brainless talk radio".

Its also the Chinese water torture of zombie-like typing.

Read 'em and weep:

The Elephant in the Room
by Ann Coulter

McCain's base -- Democrats -- [came] out and vote for him.

Assuming any actual Republicans are voting for McCain...this column is for you.

I've been casually taking swipes at Mitt Romney for the past year based on the assumption that, in the end, Republicans would choose him as our nominee. My thinking was that Romney would be our nominee because he is manifestly the best candidate.
Turn on any cable news show right now, and you will see Democratic pundits attacking Romney, calling him a "flip-flopper" ... almost as if they were reading some sort of "talking points."

Doesn't that raise the tiniest suspicions in any of you? Are you too busy boning up on Consumer Reports' reviews of microwave ovens to spend one day thinking about who should be the next leader of the free world? Are you familiar with our "no exchange/no return" policy on presidential candidates?
Liberals claim to be enraged at Romney for being a "flip-flopper." I've looked and looked, and the only issue I can find that Romney has "flipped" on is abortion. When running for office in Massachusetts -- or, for short, "the Soviet Union" -- Romney said that Massachusetts was a pro-choice state and that he would not seek to change laws on abortion.

Romney's first race was against Sen. Teddy Kennedy -- whom he came closer to beating than any Republican ever had. If Romney needed to quote "The Communist Manifesto" to take out that corpulent drunk, all men of good will would owe him a debt of gratitude.
And, of course, Romney is a Mormon. Even a loser Mormon like Sen. Harry Reid claims to be pro-life. So having a candidate with a wacky religion isn't all bad.

At worst, Romney will turn out to be a moderate Republican -- a high-IQ, articulate, moral, wildly successful, moderate Republican. Of the top five Republican candidates for president, Romney is the only one who hasn't dumped his first wife
It's also possible that Romney will turn out to be a conservative Republican -- at least more conservative than he was as governor of Massachusetts. Whatever problems Romney's Mormonism gives voters, remember: Bill Clinton came in third in heavily Mormon Utah in 1992.


Note: "It's also possible that Romney will turn out to be a conservative Republican"

It's also possible that Jessica Alba will show up at my door one of these nights wearing only a skimpy pair of panties.

It could happen...
