As if things couldn't get worse for poor old Mitt…
Former Homeland Security Secretary Tom Ridge, who previously supported Jon Huntsman, endorsed Mitt Romney for the Republican presidential nomination on Wednesday.
Previously supported Jon Huntsman? God, why doesn't Ridge go the whole nine yards and admit to being pro-choice?
Ridge [is] known as a pro-abortion rights Republican…
Tom, can I speak with you for a second?
What are you doing? You do know this guy's trying to win the Republican nomination for president, right? You know how hard that is? The foods you have to pretend to like? The types of voters you have to win over?
What I'm trying to say is, to this GOP electorate, a pro-choice northern Republican endorsing another northern Republican who once tried to give everyone in his state affordable health care is about the same as Joseph Stalin endorsing an American flag that's on fire.
So please, for Mitt's sake, keep it down.
