WHEREAS SOME IN THE STUPID PARTY ARE ACTUAL IDIOTS:

A conservative about-face on Mitt Romney: A McCain-Romney Republican ticket would be 'utterly unacceptable,' says an ad signed by social conservatives including onetime Romney backer Paul Weyrich (DON FREDERICK AND ANDREW MALCOLM, April 6, 2008, LA Times)


Paul Weyrich, co-founder of the Moral Majority, made a splash last November when he endorsed Mitt Romney for president. Now he's part of an organized campaign urging the man who bested Romney in the Republican primaries and caucuses, John McCain, to not make the former Massachusetts governor his running mate. [...]

The ad, which those paying for it say will shadow McCain in papers in various towns in visits to come, expresses skepticism about candidate Romney's sincerity in embracing a host of conservative positions on social issues that previously he had rejected.

Says the ad:

"To be clear, we all welcome anyone who has come around to the cause of life and family. However, Romney's actions as governor flatly contradict both the values widely associated with his faith as well as his pro-life and pro-traditional marriage campaign rhetoric."


These guys thought Republicans would reject the conservative candidate in favor of their pets--Mitt and Rudy--just because Maverick won't bow and scrape to them? The Beltway is an awful long way from Kansas.

The fact that anyone still pays attention to Weyrich proves that conservatives are no more skeptical than libs about people who do well out of doing good.
