Huckabee is finished. Jindal is gone. Sanford is out of the picture. Palin is on the path to self-destruction. So who's left for 2012? Mitt Romney. But aside from his daily six-hour session with his hairdresser, where is Mitt hiding?
Sensibly, Mitt is keeping his distance from the lunatic fringe. He's not saying anything controversial. Once in a while, he'll bloviate pap to an adoring audience, but he is so far below the radar that Rush hasn't even noticed him, which is how Mitt wants to keep things.
Mitt's exposure to the world is a website called "Free & Strong America PAC," which he set up for raising money. (Probably not for the Special Olympics)
Of course, he's writing a book about his Republican philosophy. (Title: "The Audacity of Nope.")
