In a year in which Republicans face terrific headwinds, party members who are presumed by the media to be a bunch of ideological maniacs seem to have walked backwards into nominating the only Republican candidate who could possibly win in November, given his potential to pull independent voters back into the GOP camp — and given the stark contrast he offers to the likely Democratic nominee.
