The Emperor Has No Clothes

MSNBC’s resident conservative, former Florida Republican congressman and host of Morning Joe, Joe Scarborough said out loud what everyone is thinking (except Ann and Mittens and their five boys), that the GOP’s emperor has no clothes:

“Let’s just be honest. Can we just say this for everybody at home? The Republican establishment — I’ve yet to meet a single person in the Republican establishment who thinks Mitt Romney will win the general election this year…. I’ve yet to meet anybody in the Republican establishment that worked for George W. Bush, that works in the Republican Congress, that worked for Ronald Reagan that thinks Mitt Romney is going to win the general election.”

When Mitt infuriates me (pathetically projecting his own most obvious defects onto Obama by calling him a flip flopper, calling him out of touch, saying he’ll end Medicare, etc.), I just imagine watching Mitt’s concession speech in November.

Maybe there’s a novel to be written — Chronicle of a Defeat Foretold.
