But, I mean, choose Mitt in the end you dodos.

This might be the most even-keeled column I’ve ever written: Undecided voters don’t deserve the abuse they’ve been getting.

“Undecided voters aren’t the enemy; they’re just honest. For all the derision they’ve gotten, it’s easy to forget that we’re all guilty of groupthink from time to time — including some of the most “decided” voters in this or any election.”
Very true. It is difficult to lock step with every position for one guy.
I’m thinking that if Romney loses, you will say “He was not conservative enough” like you did with McCain. If he loses, it will not be for this reason.

Even if he wins he’s not conservative enough. If Mitt loses it will be because incumbents are very hard to beat, something I’ve said even before we had a GOP candidate.

I knew you would say that he wasn’t conservative enough, but McCain lost because he was too conservative. In order to cross the finish line you have to appeal to not the undecided, but to those who are both conservative and liberal. Most people fall into this category.
That an ultra-conservative could win is a bizarre notion. The ones the GOP has are just nuts or worse. The looney-tunes baggage they come with means that they may do well in a conservative state, but would struggle to win over a swing state.
