Big Mitten just not that into Mitt

Being that I'm now the longest standing political blogger for the Detroit News, I've of course been particularly interested in the Michigan primary. After eight years of being harangued in the comments, I'm not that surprised to see Santorum doing well. Between the fundies and the Tea Party types, there's a huge base of very conservative Republicans in the Big Mitten who demand their candidate pass the purity test. Willard's tenure as governor of that liberal wasteland of Massachusetts alone is enough to disqualify him in that crowd.

Still, I always thought they were a minority, so I didn't expect Little Ricky would become quite so much of a threat. As Michael D. Shear notes Romney has been forced to drop a ton of money to keep his candidacy alive in what should have been a cake walk for him. What with all the grand memories of his Dad and his having grown up in the state. Certainly, he has the full support of the establishment GOP and they're firmly in power now.

In any event, today the editorial board at Detroit News endorsed Romney. And by editorial board, I'm pretty sure I mean Nolan Finley. The lenghty piece on Willard's electability and business acumen read like his work. Oh and that slam on the auto bailout, well, all the candidates did that -- so nevermind the Detroit bashing.

The only part that surprised me was Nolan's whack at the Santorum supporters. Found it to be unusally snide. But you should click over and read the comment section. They're hilarious. I especially liked the guy who accused DetNews of being "the Liberal Media." Hell, I'm the only real liberal who writes there and the liberal leaners are few.

In their minds all media is "liberal". Never mind facts the truth is also "liberal".

They just repeat whatever they hear from the leading nutzoids. Like trained parrots. Frightening that there are so many of them.

In mathematics and in logic; when a line of reasoning leads one to a contradiction or to an absurdity, one generally abandons that line, but of course in politics doing what always fails is called "principle" and one simply erases the failures by lying about it.
