    You're correct. He's a religious nut-job.

    Isolationism is a sub-strain of right-wingerism, of course. Buchanan, and the 1930s pro-German version of it, too.

    Plus the midwest conservatism has always been pretty isolationist. They just want to sell their wheat and corn, they don't care who buys it.

    so his private equity pals could pick over the rubble for the gems

    I was reading the wikipedia version of the history of Wards just now, and was surprised to see it passed through Bain's hands in the early 1990s, between its initial LBO and eventual disposition.

    Towards the end of its life, the company essentially seized the employee pension fund, cashing them out, and that struck me as profitable business model, as all these 20th century corporations had cash-loaded pension funds ripe for the plucking by big-money operators like Romney.

    Of course, the 1980s movie Wall Street had this as a plot point.

    "whopping nine-point margin, 53 percent to 44 percent."

    53 to 44 -- 5 people out of 100 allegedly switching.

    One out of 20.

    "Whopping" indeed. ::eyeroll::

    real per-capita non-defense gov't spending.

    People would like Obama more if he could open the spending taps like Bush did.

    Well-played, GOP, well-played.
