Oh please let this person be the nominee:
Incredibly, even after this, Mitt’s probably the most “electable” of the remaining Repubs. (And yes, let’s use scare quotes around “electable”, because we’re not actually talking about someone who could be elected in an actual election.)
Now, this could mean two things for the Republican Cognitive Dissonance Movement and its relationship towards its prohibitively-likely nominee:
1. Republicans could admit there’s a bit of a problem between Mitt’s effective tax rate and
evasion sheltering. And they might criticize him for it. They might even vote for Obama er, stay home.
2. They could declare that in fact, offshore bank accounts are a necessary prerogative of
our betters excuse me, our Galtian overlords, sorry, the job creators; and that the mere suggestion that there might be something not quite right about stashing such wealth away from the prying eyes of the IRS — an option not available to us proles — is tantamount to Bolshevism.
I am clearly expecting #2.
