I have been scrounging for reasons to vote for Romney. I have two so far:

1. Less likely to bail out Illinois when its pension system goes broke in the next few years

2. I might marginally prefer his Supreme Court nominees to Obama's

That is about all I have. Stretching today, I have come up with a third:

3. If we have a Republican in the White House, the press will start doing its job and dig into the facts about drone strikes and warrantless wiretapping.

You know the press are in full defense mode protecting their guy in office when the only press that reports on the ACLU's accusation about sky-rocketing wire tapping under Obama are the libertarians at Reason and the Marxists at the World Socialist Web site. Four years ago the New York Times would have milked this for about a dozen articles. It may take a Republican President to get the media to kick back into accountability mode over expansions of executive power.

I guess he's saying Illinois is more likely to implode before California. I win!
