Let The Torment Begin

Rapture rumors may not have panned out, but the five months of torment is definitely true. To wit, commenting on the decisions of Huckabee, Daniels, Pence, Barbour et al not to run, Bill Kristol writes:
It would be unfair to call the current field a vacuum. But it doesn't exactly represent an overflowing of political talent. And insofar as politics abhors even a near-vacuum, others are bound to get in. I now think the odds are better than 50-50 that both Rick Perry and Paul Ryan run. I also now think they (and others—Sarah Palin, Chris Christie, John Bolton) may not feel they have to decide until after Labor Day—or maybe even until October or even November. The field could well remain open and fluid until Thanksgiving.
I repent! Save me from the months of feckless speculation!

Teehee: Greg in comments says the rapture was of desirable GOP candidates.
