54. Fox and others are good at taking free floating anger and providing a target for it

There is a science to moving public opinion and that is basically what they sell, whether it happens during commercials or the dis-infotainment portions. Many, perhaps, most people are more moved by emotional arguments than by facts.

I think the Romney shakeout has many on the Right feeling cornered. To them, Romney is a 'Tax-achussettes liberal non-Protestant that talks out of both sides of his mouth and was the father of Obama-care."

Hell yes they are pissed off but don't expect a coherent argument. They have no one to vote for in November (but a RW Ross Perot type would certainly destroy the slim chance that Romney has).
