2012 is shaping up to be an election year that will make Stephen Colbert's head spin. Without Fox News clearly in the bag for any one GOP candidate at this point, how will he be able to properly tell his audience who has the moral aptitude to lead the country?
Bret Baier's recent uncomfortable interview with Mitt Romney further disappointed Colbert. How could this be the same Bret Baier who traditionally has barely hidden his affection for Republican candidates and, more notably, presidents? Whether they like it or not, Mitt Romney will probably be their nominee, so Fox may as well get used to it.
On one hand, Romney has been an egregious flip-flopper for years. On the other hand, why ask him that to his face! It's simply impolite, Bret Baier. For shame! And as Colbert correctly points out, Romney could end up being Baier's coworker soon (see: Gingrich, Newt; Palin, Sarah).
