Don’t laugh. Come 2016, that Democratic field’s going to be wide open.

No, I kid. But I would like to know how a guy who’s now even more suspect on abortion than Mitt Romney plans to rally the Republican base to his side in a primary. His answer, presumably: The base didn’t prevent Maverick! from being nominated last year, did it? In which case, touche. Exit question: Never mind his presidential ambitions. Does he seriously expect us to believe his bumbling answer on D.L. Hughley about Limbaugh’s show being “ugly” was a deliberate, strategic provocation? Come on, buddy. Lie to me if you must, but don’t insult me. Click the image to watch.
