The Fringe On Top, Ctd

Bernstein is looking forward to the GOP debates:

If the goal of the real candidates, especially Tim Pawlenty and Mitt Romney, is to keep the distance between themselves and the loony fringe small enough that no one can accuse them of being moderates and RINOs, then how much tougher is that going to be with five or six candidates egging each other on for the title of King or Queen Crazy?

Romney's hollow pandering is always amusing. This year, it could be hysterical.
