It strikes me that the design of the Republican primary process this season is unusually poorly thought out, and I wonder what the thought process behind it was. Months and months of debates, which were the ideal vehicle for gaffes, followed by the Iowa caucuses and the New Hampshire primary, then a bunch of beauty contests, then a slow dribble of primaries and caucuses that were set up in ways that made doing the delegate math complicated, prolonging the process further. It's been wicked expensive, and it looks like it was set up to leave the eventual nominee bleeding and ill-equipped to appeal to either the base or the general electorate.
