Romney Quitting Presidential Race

by Venomous Kate

Kim just sent an email telling me that Romney’s dropping out of the Presidential race. Sure enough: that’s what the NY Times says, too.

Of all the lame-brained ideas! What’s the point of having a runoff to the party convention if strong candidates drop out within days of Super Tuesday. Has that day subsumed the party convention now?

Granted, I’ve lost quite a bit of interest in politics over the past couple of years. So much so, in fact, that I’ve spent the past couple of months mostly just skimming the headlines and occasional blog entries discussing various candidates’ positions. I figured I’d wait until the race heated up a bit before I really started examining them more in-depth.

You know… like maybe after the primaries?

The real pisser? I’d started thinking recently that I liked Romney better than all of them. Because I am not going to vote for John McCain. I learned enough about him during the last election to know I’d rather vote Democrat than help that man get into the White House.
