Mitt Romney calls it quits

Mitt Romney has dropped out of the presidential race. Which is not all that surprising, given his anemic showing on Tuesday. But check out this parting (and hyperbolic) shot he delivered to the Dems during this morning's announcement:

"If I fight on in my campaign, all the way to the convention, I would forestall the launch of a national campaign and make it more likely that Senator Clinton or Obama would win," he said. "And in this time of war, I simply cannot let my campaign be a part of aiding a surrender to terror."

Even more noteworthy: he reportedly said this with a straight face.
