There is a bright side to Mitt Romney's departure from the presidential race: with the withdrawal of Mr. "I want to double the size of Guantanamo," that facility should finally be closed. McCain said he'd close it, and either of the Democratic candidates should do so too. At least this particular blight on what should be our nation's values will finally be at an end.

But his vitriolic farewell speech, vilifying those who merely disagree with him and asserting a false war on religion among many other topics, deserves some appropriate response. I think Jon Stewart may have put it best in last night's Daily Show segment. At 4:12, he was practically reading my mind.
