Blew Out His Flip Flop

I couldn't help but smile at this headline:

Romney to Quit Presidential Race

At last the man has come to his senses, or at least analyzed his business plan and decided to cut his losses. And I'm not the only one who's glad to see him go; see the comments on this article. My favorites include:

Good riddance!

Bye bye Willard.

You have distinguished yourself as the most mean-spirited, unprincipled, hyper-ambitious, narcissistic, and good looking candidate in the entire Republican field. And what a field it was!

I wish you all the best. Perhaps they’ll enlist you to save the China Olympics. Think of the revenue they could generate with gas mask rentals.

I think that the democratic party may be ready for a Mormon president, but the republican party is not. The republican base of fundamentalist christians are not known for their religious tolerance.

At a time when a black man and white woman can be competitive candidates in the democratic party, its sad to see how backwards the republican party still is: they can’t even accept a straight laced white businessman if he’s even slightly different than them.

I still can't shake the thought that he'll run for Senate next; he already did and lost (predictably) to Ted Kennedy in 1994. Probably he'll take his career to Michigan, where they still seem to have some sick regard for him.

Alas poor Mittward, I knew you too well...
