I'll admit: up until today I had a modicum of sympathy for Willard "Mitt" Romney. He went from the debonair moderate, pro-choice, pro-gun control, anti-Reagan Republican Governor from the bluest state in the union to a pandering, principle-less xenophobe that would say anything and do anything to become President. A classically tragic figure. But all the good will and pity I had for Mittens quickly evaporated today after his shameful, divisive and fear-mongering speech at CPAC. Are you really not above equating a Democratic victory with "surrender to The Terrorists"? Geez. I thought Rudy was out already.
The real tragedy is not that the man sold his soul to appeal to the lunatic fringe; it's that he dropped $35 million of his own cash in the process.
