The Ascension of Saint John
Tim Russert's man-crush, Senator John McCain, appeared on Meet the Press to get Father Tim's blessing as the G.O.P. establishment's man. McCain was followed by veteran stratahacks Mike Murphy and Steve McMahon, who assured viewers that Saint John would be the Republican nominee.
The corporate wing of the G.O.P. has sold its shares of Willard Co. and is repurchasing St. John Corp. to fend off the fundy rump action.
Romney's support is now limited to the lunatic fringe and those with a financial stake in Willard's success.
