"...I am throwing my own feeble endorsement right now behind Michele Bachmann. With Rick Santorum and Rick Perry to follow. After that, Newt gets my vote.
I have no interest in a Mitt Romney candidacy — largely because I see it as a pointed, establishment rebuke to the TEA Party, which establishment it is increasingly clear views the ideological-driven segment of its base with obvious disdain and distrust, if not absolute disgust (witness, eg., John Boehner’s forcing a vote on a 1200 page omnibus bill nobody read). I have no interest in a Ron Paul candidacy, because Paul’s foreign policy is not much different from Obama’s, with the caveat that Obama may in fact be more of a hawk, and that, in the final analysis, Paul may be even more of a pander (though to a niche bloc of supporters). And I have no interest in a Jon Huntsman candidacy because, well, why the fuck would I?"

Mitt, the establishment embodiment of a rebuke to the entire Tea Party movement --now why didn't I think to say that?
