Dear NH State Sen. Lambert: Not just no...

…but HECK no.

Witness a nauseating display of unwarranted brag and bounce, wherein NH State Senator Gary Lambert calls on all us Romney doubting rubes to close our traps and gleefully drink the Kool-Aid:

State Sen. Lambert, with all due respect, we’ve only had one primary, which was essentially a straw poll. And we’ve found in the aftermath that Romney may have actually lost. On that basis, it should come as no surprise to you when your call to shut up and get in line behind your candidate of choice is met not merely with skepticism, but trenchant disdain.

If there are any lessons to be learned from 2008, it’s that milquetoast moderate Republicans lose presidential elections. Thus, I flatly refuse to vote for Romney in a primary. As with McCain in 2008, Romney MIGHT get my vote in the general election IF he ends up being the nominee — but only because he would be the lesser of two evils.

Your rhetoric and your demeanor are highly insulting. If anything, I’m more ill-disposed toward Romney than I was before.

You should be proud of the winsome case you’ve made for him.
