A Democratic PAC is funding ads to remind registered Republicans that ROMNEY CAN SPEAK FRENCH! and he believes that its possible that HUMAN BEINGS ARE CONTRIBUTING TO GLOBAL WARMINGATION!
The Democrats believe (since it is true, and they want to win the election) that Newt Gingrich would be a disaster for the Republicans.
And so theyre reminding Republicans of things that would be considered assets for a candidate in any other nation on the planet in order to scare them into voting for a politically incoherent adulterous hardliner rather than the man who has the best chance of winning the election. Who is Mitt Romney, the man who imposed death panels and Stalinist health insurance on Massachusetts, reducing that state to a grey and frightened gulag.
I love American politics.
And Fox News are doing their bit, too.
The Republican field is hilariously bad, and the nature of the intra-party mudslinging isn't going to do anyone any favours at all. If it's Newt, it's over. If it's Romney, it'll be interesting.
Barack Obama has a chance. It isnt going to be a landslide for the Republicans. Its going to be extremely tight, but he certainly has a chance.
I hope he wins, and not simply because hes the least-awful prospect for America and therefore the planet.
I hope he does for the once-in-a-lifetime gloating opportunities. Many of you here will need new bibs and brains.
