We are set for a long slog now with Romney

That sound you might be hearing is a big sigh that Willard "Mitt" ("Mittens") Romney has won Illinois primary - and probably shut down the nomination process.
.
The Republicans are happy the race is essentially over, and resigned to a dull as dirt candidate. He has huge negatives, but they have just brought in the big "lying" money.  The dickwad that painted John Kerry (2 time recipient of the purple heart ) as a chicken has just give Mittens $3Million , so we know the race is going for the high road.
.
But the real dejected sighing is from the political reporters.  What will they do for the next few months.  You know, besides broadcast whatever lie each party spins.  You saw the "deep reporting" yesterday when the Republicans released their "budget".  Their entire "budget" consisted of massive tax cuts, increased defense spending, medicare capped and shipped to the states and "other cuts" to balance the budget.  They didn't even bother to say what they would cut.
.
Oh yeah, and they will repeal ObamaCare, throwing 30 million people off insurance - because support is creating a "hammock of dependency".
.
The Democrats and their pie in the sky aren't really any better.  Just quieter because anything they propose will piss someone off, so they hide in the Senate like the freshman at a High School Dodge Ball tournament.
.
I suppose they could actually investigate and report rather than parrot and publish - but that is hard and, truthfully, probably no longer profitable.
.
On the other hand, I am kind of happy.  Listening to Mittens makes my brain hurt, but listening to Newt was making my ears bleed and one more pronouncement from Saucy Santorum was going to make my head explode.
