It's always the lesser of two evils. The lesser implies there is a greater evil. O will continue to destroy the economy, so that makes him the greater evil in this case. At this point, it's going to be O or Mitt. To vote for someone else or not vote is a waste and a "vote" for O. One of the two will the elected. The greater evil is worse than the lesser so that means the lesser is better. Mitt is not my first choice, but I plan to voter him the lesser=better.

Newt Gingrich finally made it formal. He's now ended his presidential race with characteristic bombast. The real news, the big surprise, was that he made it this far. And resisted dropping out for this long. The man has a real talent -- for ignoring reality.

If character really is fate, the Newt should have been done as a presidential candidate as soon as his dubious connections with Freddie Mac became common knowledge....
