Too funny.

Romney wins convincing Michigan victory

Har, har. This gives the guy who inherited half a billion dollars reason to continue writing checks to keep his campaign going.

Seriously, the guy who worries me in a general election (out of the field of GOP theocrats and fascists) is McCain. Independents like him.

Do you think they voted for him, because they remember his dad as a politico in the state?

One might wonder if they remember his dad was one of three main contenders in 1964? Goldwater eventually beat both Romney and Rockefeller for the nomination. What I remember most was that Romney senior would have been the first nominee not to have been born in the United States. His parents were on a Mormon mission in Canada and while born a US citizen he was born outside the country.

Romney is just another fundie, maybe even worse than the Huck. BUT McCain is more of a warmonger than either of those two, and he is the most like Bush.

IF the Dems don't get their act together and stop the infighting, they're looking sillier and sillier and nobody is going to take them seriously, especially the independents.

Why Romney Is Good for Democrats

This video makes the case that Democrats should do everything in their power to keep Mitt Romney, and his millions in negative campaign ads, in the race

Check out this "endorsement" by Mark Kleiman:

An Endorsement

I agree with Matt Yglesias (gee, that's never happened before, has it?) that Mitt Romney would be the least horrible President among the Republican candidates. Demonstrably, he has an IQ statistically significantly different from zero, isn't demonstrably bonkers aside from his narcissism, and doesn't actually believe in anything. That's a big improvement over much of his opposition.

And voting for Mitt has the side-benefit of helping to keep the nastiness going on the GOP side, as this video hilariously argues.

Watch for Mittens to pull off an upset win in Maryland in the primary, and in the general election, if he is the nominee. He is the Bushbot in this election as he is being backed by the same people in the military industrial complex who brought you the Bush regime. They are up to their old tricks again.

Company Connected to GOP and Romney Delivers Diebold Machines to Maryland Polls

A company, whose head is the former chairman of the Maryland Republican Party and is on Mitt Romney's presidential campaign steering committee, has won a contract from Diebold to deliver its voting machines on Election Day to precincts in 14 Maryland voting districts. I filed this story on the deal for Wired's front door.

The trucking firm, Office Movers, is owned by the family-run Kane Company, whose CEO and president is John M. Kane, chairman of the Republican Party in Maryland from 2002 until December 2006 and pictured at right with President Bush. Last November, Kane joined the steering committee for Republican presidential nominee candidate Mitt Romney, who won Tuesday's primary in Michigan.

Diebold Election Systems (now called Premier Election Solutions) has a statewide contract in Maryland. Its paperless touch-screen machines are the only machines used at Maryland polling locations (absentee and provisional ballots are cast on the company's optical-scan system). According to Diebold's state contract, the voting machine vendor is in charge of delivering its machines from warehouses to polling places on Election Day and with picking up the machines after the election.

Diebold has subcontracted part of that task to Office Movers to deliver machines for the February 12th primary and November general election in 14 of the state's 24 voting districts, including the state's largest county, Montgomery County.

The news surprised a voting activism group in Maryland and raises some concerns about possible conflict of interest and election integrity.
