37. Consider

The news media, including MSNBC always tries to make elections close. Hell they didn't think Reagan or Bush the son would be elected either.

I think what you have to realize is that the media, very conservative by nature, always tries to make it an even race. So you can count on Obama getting Gored, getting the Al Gore treatment that is, by them to even it up. I'm not even sure they wanted Bush to win in 2000, yea, yea I am.

And what happens when an extreme right-winger, nearly mad, insane, like Sanitarium gets in the race, running against a democrat who is right-of-center, like Obama? It massively pushes the ideological spectrum to the right.

I'm not thrilled, but no one need be happy about San, or Newt getting the nod. We may want to vote in primaries for Romney, just to keep it from happening, as sometimes, we've seen, due to our lack of truth in the media, these idiots get elected. Be careful what you wish for.
