Mitt Romney Central is outraged by the above video. Chait looks on:

Romney's problem is that he was caught up in his party's massive rightward lurch – his position [on health care] was almost completely uncontroversial in 2008, but it has become anathema in 2012 because the GOP has lost its mind. I genuinely wish Romney good luck in winning the party nomination, because he's at heart a sane man trying to lead an insane party.

There is nothing sane about Romney's ambition. It has destroyed whatever was left in his brain. Does Chait remember Romney's speech in St Paul? Even David Brooks called it "borderline insane."
