Consider Me Unconvinced

I like Ezra Klein. I think his new website, Vox, is a handy tool for people who needs the bullshit cut when they get their news on the fly.

However, on the splash, is a story that posits that the disappearance of R-Money will open up the field for younger blood. Mitt himself even alluded to this conjecture:

“I believe that one of our next generation of Republican leaders, one who may not be as well known as I am today, one who has not yet taken their message across the country, one who is just getting started, may well emerge as being better able to defeat the Democrat nominee,” he told supporters on the call. “In fact, I expect and hope that to be the case.”

Well. Touche, Jeb Bush.

This article is in direct contradiction of a post I just eked out, where I said in so many words that it is Bush, not the clown show, that stands to benefit from Mitt’s departure. The author says there may be space for Scott Walker.

Pardon me. I have to snicker for a minute. The “Molotov” nebbish. Who can’t get his bible right (I bet a shitload of Christ-worshippers believe that the fish proverb comes from the bible). This baby-faced lightweight? Come on. Vox is pulling my leg. And Christie? A provincial, braying,bloated hamburger-filled crook. There is no way the Mr. Creosote of New Jersey has a chinaman’s chance at the nomination-but he’s just narcissistic to try anyway.

Taking Romney seriously is ill-advised. I wouldn’t be caught dead agreeing with him on anything. I’m afraid to say that this “thinking man’s” thought-experiment rings hollow. I’m sure that one of these fucking fools will take Iowa, but I don’t see them getting any further than that. I think us political junkies are all just wanking at this point, waiting for some real campaigning. Who will draw first blood on Jeb? I wanna see that.
