..but in the upcoming days, the history of the 2012 presidential race will start whizzing by at blinding speed.
So, herewith -- while to primordial ooze is coagulating -- is a questionable prediction of where we will be on that firts Monday evening in November 2012:
It's gonna be Mitt Romney versus The Pantload.
I came to this revelation based on, well, my customary Sunday evening Glennfiddich-induced haze and after perusing a Hot Air Headlines post entitled "With Daniels out, it’s Romney’s election to lose" and this brace of comments zapped me:
If Obama is the Dem candidate, I’m voting against him.
Simple as that.

This. Hate to say it but if Romney’s the nominee, most on here will do the same, warts and all. That’s how bad Obama is.

I believe these sentiments to be sadly correct. Many of us dislike Mittens intensely but despise The Pantload and what his administration has done to this country much more. It is also a fact that there are many, many on the "near left" who, discontented with Obama's flummery, would cross over to vote for a Mittens but not do so for a Palin.
Hell, there are even those on the "far left" who might do the same "just to punish the Democrats".
If the Dems receive another thrashing in 2012 (i.e., lose the Senate), then they may retrun to some semblance of sanity and offer a decent candidate for president for a change and -- who knows? -- with the so-called strengthened conservative "farm system in place, Mittens himself might get primaried by a more conservative candidate in 2016.
..and there really is a Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown.
