Fundamentally Flawed

("Mitt's Mortification")

It is not the process, but the party that is the root cause for Mr. Romney's dismal performance. Certainly, he is wooden and awkward, but he starts each day at a major disadvantage. He is the leader of a party that is anti-gay, anti-immigrant, anti-science and anti-intellectual. It believes in pandering to the rich and demonstrates nothing but contempt for the poor. It disrespects women. It distorts reality, choosing allegation and innuendo over fact. Its economic theory on how to revive our stalled economy has been proven demonstrably ineffective.

Mr. Romney has hitched his wagon to the wrong horse, and anyone who is so aligned can only come off sounding petty, petulant, full of pejoratives and predictably sour. There is a reason that only the Cains, Bachmanns, Santorums and Gingriches of this world were paraded before us. Today's Republican platform is dominated by concepts which are fundamentally shallow, flawed and often ugly.

For the Republican party the fault lies not merely in their star but in themselves.

Gee...you really have a low opinion of the Republican party. How can that be?
