Some ought to check the water in Iowa for contaminants. That's the only explanation I can see for why the GOP base seems determined to nominate someone who's essentially unelectable. I mean, Herman Cain? Come on! Nobody could believe that he had a shot until he rocketed to the top of the polls? Then Newt? And now Ron Paul? Hell, Ron Paul is actually hated by most talk radio purveyors of conservative orthodoxy. So, what's going on here? Is the hatred and distrust of Romney actually SO great that the GOP base is willing to nominate just anyone?
