The tiny, hysterical hologram of Jennifer Rubin appears on the kitchen table where the Romneys are each enjoying a refreshing glass of orange juice.
"Mitt," hologram Jennifer Rubin wheedles, "I don't want to hear any more excuses."
From the Washington Post:
Romney has no more excusesSee? What'd I tell you.

Hologram Jennifer Rubin explains how Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton are both exactly, equally unfit for The Highest Office In The Land:
Like dinner guests in a murder mystery, potential candidates for a third-party run for president have disappeared one by one. Their reticence to run seems inversely proportionate to the growing need for an alternative to Hillary Clinton (who cannot be counted on to follow clearly articulated rules designed to protect national security nor to tell a straight story when caught) and to Donald Trump, who seems less fit to serve with each outburst, new conspiracy theory and lie."Should we offer it some orange juice or something?" Ann Romney whispers to Mittens.
Without a center-right alternative, America, at a critical juncture, will be stuck with one of two exceptionally flawed candidates, either one of which would easily make the Top 10 in the list of “worst nominees of a major party.”
To be blunt, anyone able to articulate a complete sentence, have a working understanding of the Constitution and major policy issues and not be a complete scoundrel would be an improvement over the two major party nominees. Romney is a composite of Albert Schweitzer and Winston Churchill compared with Trump or Clinton.
Mittens shakes his head.
"No more excuses, Mitt!" hologram Jennifer Rubin exhorts.
Romney reportedly is exceptionally reluctant, maybe even firmly opposed to a run. With each passing week, however, his reasons for not running evaporate."This is our most desperate hour," hologram Jennifer Rubin concludes. "Help me, Obi-Wan Mittromney. You're my only hope."
Romney may have other concerns about a presidential run, but given how serious the challenges the country faces are and how dismal the current choice for president is, do those concerns really override the opportunity to rescue the country from the dreaded Clinton vs. Trump face-off?Hologram Jennifer Rubin vanishes. Once again the Romney household is quiet.
Ann Romney looks around the kitchen.
"Who the hell is Jennifer Rubin?" she asks.
"I haven't the slightest idea," Mittens replies.
