Republicans often tout Ronald Reagan’s “11th Commandment”: Thou shalt speak no evil of a fellow Republican. Well, that was much easier when they were running uncontested elections, as we now see. Here is a snippet from a New York Times article on Mitt Romney’s new strategy:

The plan is complete with a new infusion of cash from Mr. Romney, a long-term strategy intended to turn the campaign into a protracted delegate fight and a reframing of the race as a one-on-one battle for the future of the party that seeks to sound the alarm among conservatives about Mr. McCain.
