Romney’s Wingnut Problem

I’ve been watching Republican conventions on television for years. What I see when the nominee finishes his acceptance speech is a stage full of uncomfortable-looking black people imported from the hotel kitchen staff to assuage the consciences of the few Republican moderates in the viewing audience, and a floor full of screaming white people who look something like this:

The wingnuts were very happy with George W. Bush in 2004. They barely tolerated John McCain in 2008. I think they’re going to gag on Mitt Romney in 2012.

This is a big problem.
