As Meteor Blades writes today at Daily Kos, while many disenchanted Republicans cling to the hope that a credible candidate will step in to save the GOP from the current field of presidential candidates, time has essentially run out: "The Republicans came to the dance with the wrong partners. And now they're going to have to go home with one of them."
Tom Tomorrow, capturing the essence of the two top contenders, shows us why the Republicans should be worried. As he says, Newt Gingrich "could not be any more repellant if he were literally exposed as an oozing reptillian creature bent on global domination." And then there's Mitt Romney, "who could not be any less convincing as an 'ordinary guy' if he literally wore a top hat and monocle."
