Despair Inc., offers parodies of inspirational posters designed for pessimists, underachievers, and the chronically unsuccessful.

There is indeed despair within the conservative community about Mitt Romney as the probable Republican Presidential candidate, who they see as not truly representing their conservative values.
Conservative dissidents clamor either to “do something” or to do nothing.
The “do nothings” largely consist of those, now timid Reagan Republicans, who want the Party to move in their direction, but are hesitant to buck the now liberal Republican establishment, which might exile them to the blogosphere or have their names scratched off the list of possible political appointees in a newly minted Romney Administration.
Like the Republican establishment, the “do nothings” focus exclusively on winning, getting Obama out. They do not expend much intellectual energy considering core principles or, for that matter, strict adherence to the Constitution and the rule of law.
The “do nothings” will invariably brand any Republican proposing views contrary to theirs as someone who wants to “re-elect Obama”. It is a pejorative not unlike the left’s use of the word “racist” or “extremist.” It is a ploy lacking intellectual rigor and used simply to disarm and silence any opposition.
The “do nothings” have not only succumbed to the scare tactics employed by the Republican establishment, which center on the utter horror of a second Obama Administration, but they are now enthusiastically using that technique on others.
The “do nothings” believe that loyalty to the establishment provides the best chance of a Republican victory and will, sometime…..
