Romney campaign flag.
Coulter holds nose and annoints Romney.
The mainstream media keep pushing alternatives to Mitt Romney not only because they are terrified of running against him, but also because they want to keep Republicans fighting, allowing Democrats to get a four-month jump on us.
Meanwhile, everyone knows the nominee is going to be Romney.
That's not so bad if you think the most important issues in this election are defeating Obama and repealing Obamacare.
The "mainstream media" are not "pushing alternatives to Mitt Romney." The polls of voters desperate to avoid him are.
This is the same logic that got us Bob Dole and John McCain -- candidates picked by the GOP elite. In Dole's case for the ridiculous reason that it was "his turn."
I'll tell you what "everyone knows" in my neck of the woods. If "Ole Windsock" Romney is the nominee then the GOP will have to contend with a third party. The SOB is stuck at 25% in the polls for a reason, and if the elites (which apparently include Coulter) ram him down the Tea Parties' throats then they will frigging lose with a split vote.
What will that do for the chances of "defeating Obama and repealing Obamacare"?
The thing these people fail to understand is that their entire regime of corrupt two-party oligarchy has been delegitimized by events. The Tea Parties started spontaneously because the GOP elites had failed them. Now the elites want them trust 'em once more?
As I pointed out here "The power to destroy a thing is the absolute control over it."
We will see if Coulter likes the unintended consequences of Romney being jammed down all our throats. I doubt she will.
The crisis of legitimacy cannot be solved by electing one more corrupt and unprincipled bastard.
