New York Times: Lunar Colonies, Lunacy and Losses

Is the Republican Party's 2012 presidential election "goose" already "cooked?"

Savvy Charles M. Blow Op-Ed piece in this morning's New York Times, from which we incorporate this closing paragraph, which pretty much sums up Mr. Blow's editorial proposition:
The truth is that the Republican Party has no good choice at this point. It only has bad choices and worse choices. And the American public is beginning to recognize that. As the Republican courtiers of incompetence beat up each other, knock down each other and reveal each other’s flaws, a number of recent surveys have found that President Obama’s poll numbers on a number of metrics have begun to trend upward.
Read Mr. Blow's full-blown Op-ed commentary here:
So what about it, O Gentle Ones?

Is the Republican Party's 2012 presidential election "goose" already "cooked," even at this relatively early point in the 2012 election season?

If Jerry Brown can get flack for this, so should Newt Gingrich:
Remember Governor Moonbeams? Now there's Newt Gingrich

As Dole’s statement went on to say, “In my opinion, if we
want to avoid an Obama landslide in November, Republicans should nominate
Governor Romney as our standard-bearer.”

This is arrogant.  Bob Dole was electoral
suicide, just like McCain. 

Please watch if you have not.  Romney is a smart man who uses his gifts to
legally steal from others.

Gingrich is perhaps the most corrupt politician in our
times.  He has a wonderful talent for
speaking, and he uses that talent to enrich and empower himself at the expense
of others.

Both of these men are monsters.  If you are a Republican, pray Ron Paul wins
the nomination.  Otherwise, stupid Republicans
will once again commit electoral suicide.

Obama is looking better and better.  And that ain’t easy to do.  Nice job, Republicans.  You screwed yourselves again.

It's a reality show, done for ratings and the sake of entertainment. That's part of the reason for the round-robin style of primary winners.

The script ends with a twist, though: everyone is voted off the island at the convention and the eventual winner is a yet-to-be-named dark horse. My money is on a military type (Petraeus?) but a push for Jeb Bush wouldn't surprise me.

Another Bush in the WH?   Flying Spaghetti Monster help us all!
