Mildred Purse Surmises Mitt Romney's Future for The Next Three Weeks

WEEK ONE
He will experience a radical increase in insistence
that he release his tax returns
He will not come up with a convincing response
to the meme that his tax proposal benefits him and few else
His staff will tell him he better fess up
WEEKEND
He and Ann will discuss what he should do
He considers quitting
She will have none of it
He agrees to stonewall for another week
WEEK TWO
Romney staffers and advisers exit 
some voluntarily
The ship begins to rock dangerously
MSM TV and NYT begin to circle around
some of the more damaging news already out there
like Romney's cop impersonation at Stanford
and association with horrible happenings from
Latin America to central Africa
WEEKEND
A delegation tells Mitt to quit
Ann says no way
Mitt becomes agitated
WEEK THREE
Mitt releases three years of returns which show him paying taxes
He says this is all you will get and damn Harry Reid
He is told that Sarah Palin is planning to call for him to quit
He does his best to stop her
Ann calls up Sarah
Sarah tells her the jig is up
