Shep Smith-a Geraldo wannabe.
I think the May (and even June) primaries are being held, but they seem to be purely symbolic. I feel bad for the states that are spending millions to hold them, and for the voters, who clearly realize that their votes count for nothing now.
“This was predictable early - Thomas Sowell did among others.”
Anyone with a brain, and willing to think, knew this was going to be Mitt Romney’s nomination, the day Sarah Palin announced she wasn’t running.
It’s all just been kabuki from there.
Ron Paul is apparently running a stealth campaign to capture the actual role of delegates in various states. They’ve had good success and are discussing “abstaining” from the initial vote. It be a miracle, but it would be a miracle if the Pauliacs managed to keep Mitt from reaching the 1,144 votes.
I’m not sure the notMitt opposition would have become organized behind Palin had she entered.
I believe Sowell’s point was the candidates themselves had to unite, with the others dropping out. As long as they were in, the vote would be split.
It’s sad that such an opportunity for a strong conservative candidate was wasted, but that’s where we are.
thanks for your reply.
Needless to say, this is going to be a very interesting year. Have a good rest of your day. What will be will be.
