Tom Degan: It must be a terribly frustrating thing to be Mitt Romney these days. Were he to be elected president (and that’s never gonna happen, I promise you) he would be an unerringly reliable water boy for the plutocracy.
Tom Degan: Okay, folks, I’m gonna level with you. This one was such a no-brainer it’s almost embarrassing to even be reminded of it. There was no smoke-filled-room filled with editors in passionate debate.

Tom Degan: You know your candidacy is pretty much blued, screwed, and tattooed, when a certified headcase like Herman Cain is leading you in every poll.
It would seem to me in recent weeks that President Obama’s week-kneed moderation is starting to give way to a bit of moxie. This has been welcome news indeed. This guy needs to engage in some serious political ass whupping.
