been at this for a while, calling Herman
Cain "… too self-absorbed to see that he made it as far
as he did only because he is black," a "haughty horse’s
ass" and a "buffoonish peacock." The contradictions
and curiosities evident here are worthy of an entire book, but we
simply don’t have the time.
Before we examine
what the dear man has to say about Ron Paul, it’s important to look
at how and where this "progressive" has slung the proverbial
monkey poo. Of Newt, he rails, "The idea that he’s a serious
presidential candidate is preposterous." Rick Perry was "a
bubblehead." He has been dismissive of other candidates,
and surprising gentle on Mitt Romney, seeing him as a beleaguered
yet suitable GOP candidate, and even "feeling sorry for him.
to belittle and be disgusted by a GOP presidential aspirant relates
to a clearly mathematical calculation. No emotional tirades, no
incoherent outbursts of political toddler rage. Rather, he’s all
business. The math looks like this: Likelihood of getting the GOP
nomination times the odds this guy can really beat Obama in November
2012 equals Tomasky’s fear factor.
