2. K & R
We're seeing why the republican rank & file have been so reluctant to anoint Mitt der Shitt - preferring instead to give all the also-rans a moment in the sun. KochCain's time has passed, and I look for Noot to receive undue attention from the corporate media. They're running out of viable alternatives, so they'll hold their noses and dutifully accept their candidate-by-default.
