One of the most memorable parts of the 2012 presidential campaign (for me, anyway) was how Mitt Romney's road to inevitability was constantly thwarted by the litany of crackpot contenders battling to out-crazy each other during the endless parade of debates, in hopes of locking in the unhinged elements of the Republican base. Of course, thanks to the Republicans' primary process, winning the base is a virtual guarantee of alienating many of the voters you need to carry you in a general election. This presents a bit of a problem, and one the GOP's current minders are acutely aware of if their latest maneuverings are anything to go by.
