Steve Kornacki reviews the record:

Three times in his relatively limited political career Romney has found a woman standing between him and his political goal. In each case, he ended up getting what he wanted -- but it was always awkward, ugly and downright nasty, with cries of chauvinism and sexism along the way. The man just does not know how to look good while competing with a woman.

Conservatives4Palin, her de facto communications team for 2012, is already crying sexism - over the anonymous staffer spat last week. I think almost anyone can defeat Romney, a hologram of a politician defined only by ambition and great hair. Palin would destroy him.
