Brokered Conventions

I told you from the beginning that this cycle’s selection of Republican candidates is an absolute clown show, to put it kindly.

I also asked two main questions. The first one was “Where are the broke (poor) Republicans?”. The second was “How come none of the better Republicans (Chris Christie, Paul Ryan, etc) want to run, if they think it’s going to be so easy to defeat President Obama in 2012?”.

To be clear, Romney was always the only quasi-viable candidate that the Republicans fielded this cycle.

All these surges in the polls that you’ve seen (if you’ve been paying attention to this stuff at all) are not votes for individual candidates.. They’re votes *AGAINST* Romney.

There are only two choices here.. Romney and Not-Romney.
