Are we there yet?

Are you as tired of this endless Republican primary as I am? Yet another GOP debate (hopefully the last) is scheduled for Wednesday, this time here in Phoenix. Swell.

Despite all of the slings and arrows Mitt Romney has taken -- along with the barrages still to come -- he remains the likely GOP nominee. He'll be battered and bloodied, and it won't be pretty. But Republicans are stuck with him. To pick one of the alternatives -- Gingrich or Santorum -- is to hand President Obama a landslide in November. I'm not convinced the Grand Old Party is ready to commit political suicide. At least, not yet.

As for Romney v. Obama, Eugene Robinson sums it up succinctly: "Mitt Romney, whose main selling point is his supposed ability to beat Obama in November, has shown himself incapable of putting away a couple of — let’s face it — political has-beens whose glory days were in the previous century."

The outcome in November is hardly in doubt. The election has always been (and remains) Obama's to lose. (See the above photo. Does he look worried?) If only we could fast-forward to Election Day and get this thing over with.
