The Republicans Just Got Interesting

Well, well, well....seems that South Carolina threw a very nice ol' monkey wrench into the inevitability of Multiple Choice Mitten's march to be the nominee.  Could the GOP convention end up being brokered if no one gets enough delegates to win it outright?  It's unlikely but a possibility which would mean that I'd have to watch their convention.  I sure hope I don't have to.

The Republican Primary Season, So Far

I've promised myself not to pay attention to what the Republicans are doing since I won't be voting for them no matter what but I figure since everyone else is doing it, I thought I'd throw in my two cents on the GOP season.  How I'll do it is take the predictions and see how they're doing so far.

Prediction:  Romney will be the nominee.

What's happened:  Once the votes have started to come in, it's looking like Romney will be the Republican nominee.

Prediction:  The Republicans will lie a lot during their debates.

What's happened:  The Republicans have had 16 debates with more to come and they've lied a lot during them.  Knowing this beforehand, I have avoided watching any of them.

Prediction:  It'll be difficult for the far right to find an anti-Romney candidate.

What's happened:  After falling in and out of love of various alternatives to Romney, it's been difficult for the Teabaggers, etc. to find a viable alternative to Romney.

And on and on it goes.  Wasn't that exciting?
