Why Romney deserved to lose: Daniel Larison

Daniel Larison writes a fitting political epitaph for Mitt: 

Romney represented almost everything that was wrong, misguided, and
self-destructive in the Republican Party and the conservative movement.
His defeat is a good outcome for the cause of peace and liberty in the
country as a whole and within the Republican Party. The public rejected a
candidate of fathomless cynicism and dishonesty, and that has to be
greeted as a small, encouraging sign that there are still some things
that Americans won’t tolerate in their leaders. Very few candidates have
deserved to lose an election as richly as Romney deserved to lose this

Strange but encouraging to see some writers at The American Conservative (such as Rod Dreher) quietly accepting a Democratic president, not for the sake of liberalism, but to allow a true conservativism to take root in the shell of the Rove-addled, Limbaugh-deranged, money-besotted GOP.
