Morning Briefing: June 19th, 2012

Too Good to be True
For months now I’ve been saying Mitt Romney is our John Kerry, another flip-flopping Massachusetts elitist, and comparing this election to 2004, with Obama a weak incumbent facing an untrustworthy challenger. Now comes word I was closer to the mark than I could’ve possibly imagined, because the Obama Regime has commissioned Kerry to portray Willard in their mock debates. All good humor has an element of truth to it.
GOP Establishment: Snatching Defeat from the Jaws of Victory since 1976
This can’t possibly be true. I mean, this is even colossally stupid even by Republican Party establishment standards, which is saying something because we’re talking about folks whose I.Q. is down near the moron level. But according to Jonathan Karl of ABC News, the Obamney Campaign is not vetting Marco Rubio for V.P., but is considering former Minnesota Governor Tim Pawlenty as a “safe choice” for the etch-a-sketch running mate. Pawlenty, you’ll recall, is the cowardly political hack who coined the phrase “Obamneycare” during the campaign, then didn’t have the guts to confront Romney with it to his face at a debate two days later.
Sarah Palin Still Hasn’t Endorsed Mittens
While Sarah Palin has made it concretely clear that she’s opposed to President Barack Obama’s re-election, the former governor of Alaska has not yet offered a formal endorsement of the presumptive Republican nominee for president. Palin — the 2008 Republican vice presidential nominee, who admitted to voting for Newt Gingrich during the GOP primary — said earlier this year that she would support Romney “100 percent” if he became the nominee. But she hasn’t been very enthusiastic about supporting the former Massachusetts governor since he clinched the nod. Um…if you were Palin, why would you be?
