35. Not since the last time Dick Morris picked up a pen have I read anything as delusional

and self-pitying as Stevens' op-ed. My favorite part (other than his absurd notion that winning young white voters by 7 point while losing young non-white voters by an average of around 70 points is a good thing for repubs) is his declaration that no one in the "professional political class" thought Romney had a snowball's chance in hell of winning the repub nomination. The truth is that Romney was from the start to the finish the repub establishment's candidate and while their confidence was shaken by his abysmal showing in the early days of the primaries, they always were behind him. As for Romney convincing the voters not the political class? Well, that's a laugh. It wasn't until the last batch of primaries in April (after most of his competition had thrown in the towel because they lacked the money) that Romney consistently began to win 50 percent or more of the primary vote. Heck, on Super Tuesday, he only got 38 percent of the vote. The rest was split amongst a bunch of unelectable clowns. Same thing in the mid-March primaries -- Romney couldn't attract even 40 percent of the repub primary voters.

He was the choice of the establishment, but not of the crazies that come out to vote in primaries. What saved him was that the crazies flitted from one nutjob (Cain! Bachmannn! Newt!! Santorum!!) after another and didn't rally behind just one of them.

Pathetic. Stevens will be the source of much laughter in DC tomorrow morning.
