The terrible movie critic and worse pundit Michael Medved states the voters and the new Republican objection to Mitt Romney, he's unelectable because of his phoniness.. He does worse than any other GOP candidate against Obama or Clinton. (Of course, Edwards does better than either Obama or Clinton against the GOP candidates but this never gets mentioned.)
McCain is the only GOP candidate who is essentially tied with Clinton and Obama. The media loves McCain and his fake "straight talk express." Still, I admit he or Huckabee or Paul may be the best of a bad lot.
