Even the ever optimistic Romney supporter Hugh Hewitt is reading the tea leaves and sees the inevitable for the GOP. Despite it not including a victory for his candidate, Hewitt calls on Republicans to rally around the eventual nominee.

There are seven reasons for anyone to support the eventual nominee no matter who it is: The war and six Supreme Court justices over the age of 68.

Hewitt has been the source of a lot of comedic material around the conservative blogosphere as he attempted to spin every event as a positive for Romney. When Huckabee won Iowa – “You know who this benefits? Romney.” When McCain won New Hampshire – “You know who this benefits? Romney.” It was like clockwork. Romney finished second (or third) in another GOP primary and Hugh would have a post about how this helped Romney in the long run and was part of their big picture plan. Today, the joke has died.
