Rep. Pete Sessions (R-MomentarilySane) of Texas and chairman of the House Rules Committee doesn't see any reason for his party to reinvent themselves. No, instead he blames the inferior candidates who were “lazy, undisciplined, didn’t know what they were talking about, and shot their mouth off.” Think: Todd "legitimate rape" Akin.
And furthermore and even more to the point, think: Poster boy for inferior candidates, Willard M. Romney. Here's how Pete Sessions described his presidential run in a D Magazine interview:
“Mitt Romney appeared like a kid who showed up for his science project and the teacher said, ‘Explain it,’ and Mitt couldn’t do it,” Sessions said. “His ‘dad,’ Paul Ryan, explained it to him, but Mitt didn’t get it. … That’s why we lost the last election.”
Speaking of science (or in the case of the GOP, science fiction) projects, his candidacy was the perfect example of one that
exploded imploded, leaving a mess o' rubble strewn all over what's left of the Republican Laboratory for Mad (Anti) Scientists.
