Redstate: Newt and Mitt are both losers, but who else is there?

Another Erickson post recently had this:

Newt may not be able to win. But Romney sure as hell can’t beat Obama either if Newt can’t win. The problem remains — Gingrich supporters intrinsically know this to be so and are happy to die fighting. Romney’s supporters are still deluding themselves.

And I've seen this meme more and more, as the (oh so fun to watch) infighting at redstate has gone on and on. The new meme for justifying support for Newt is that even though Newt may be likely to lose ... at least he's not Mitt. And even though Newt tends to stab Conservatives in the back ... won't the debates against Obama be fun to watch as the GOP goes down in flames?

Yes, they've come down to two candidates who are so deeply flawed they have almost no enthusiastic supporters. Just "our guy isn't as crappy as your guy" feuds.

Maybe that's about as good as it's going to get from the "Who Would Jesus Bomb" camp, but it's good enough to get people looking more seriously at Paul.

Many of us quickly dismiss Ron Paul, but his performance was stellar. He offered extremely sound responses on healthcare, education, border security, and more.

Good stuff.
