Almost.

Via BuzzFeed Politics:

A video posted today shows conservative provocateur Andrew Breitbart shouting “Behave yourselves!” and “Stop raping people!” at Occupiers protesting outside CPAC this afternoon. He also calls them “freaks and animals.”

Michael Reagan, in this interview with Mark Levin, shoots down the smears spread by the Romney campaign and its supporters regarding Newt and Ronald Reagan.

Meanwhile, Jeffrey Lord has another great piece, Newt Battles Mush From the Wimps (h/t jiminsocal in the Tip Line):

If you asked me even a couple of weeks ago whether the Republican Party could heal from the wounds of this election cycle in time to unite against Obama, I would have said “Yes.”

I’m not so sure anymore.  After the South Carolina primary the Republican establishment, and media supporters like Matt Drudge, launched ...

There is something truly obscene about the full blown assault on Newt Gingrich’s strong Reagan conservative history from and on behalf of Mitt Romney, who unabashedly ran away from the Reagan legacy and conservative principles in his 1994 Senate campaign and 2002 gubernatorial campaign. Truly obscene.

The latest iteration comes from Elliott...

Operation Counterweight commenced on June 10, 2011:

Why do I have this feeling that the back-stabbing and petty politics of the Republican insiders are going to leave me completely unexcited about the presidential campaign, and more focused on electing conservatives to Congress as a counterweight to the (hoped...

From NRO to The Washington Examiner to the Romneyquest WaPo blogger, Newt’s record is being picked over and criticized by Romney supporters as not sufficiently or consistently conservative.

I’ll save you the trouble of reading the critiques, as they can be summarized in one sentence the critics never seem to finish:

The only reason, the only reason, the only reason anyone pays any attention to David Frum is that he is the mainstream media’s “useful conservative,” someone who screams about the crazy Republican Party and Tea Party movement.

He is worse than a carnival barker, because a carnival barker does not gain attention...

Let’s sum up the “facts” as they are known right now.  Mostly unnamed people accused Herman Cain of unspecified conduct which some people who will not specify the people or the conduct have deemed “inappropriate.”  And...

It’s the age-old question.

And it is not a theoretical question, as you know from recent experience here, because if I followed that line of thinking religiously, multiple remaining candidates would be crossed off my list.

For example, David Frum is supporting Mitt Romney.
