Mitt Romney wins Texas, clinches Republican nomination

That’s all. I could put links and such in here, but meh. Wasn’t it a forgone conclusion?  Well, except for the convention shenanigans planned by the Ron Paul acolytes

I could spend several paragraphs dissecting this, but I’m too disappointed. The GOP primary promised to be bread and circuses, yet they’ve left us with the most boring clown in the ring.

So I’ll leave you with this:

"Once upon a time there was a politician who made an especially conspicuous ass of himself and didn’t say the newspapers misquoted him." — Robert Elliott Gonzales, Poems and Paragraphs

And that, my friends, is Willard Mitt Romney.

And Matt Bors makes me weep for the future. From his blog:

After that debt debate, I’m not too sure what Obama’s going to be running on this election. The near-universal consensus these days is that he’s a wimp without any fight in him who got steamrolled by the Tea Party. He’s says it is now time to focus on jobs. I guess half way into a lost decade is as good a time as any for lip service.
Ultimately, Democrats and their apologists will fall back on their usual way of motivating liberals to get out to the polls: threatening them with Republican rule. Lucky for them, America’s distaste for the Republican party is at a peak so they may be able to coast back into office even after these abysmal couple of years.

2012 is just around the corner! Hooray!
