Newt's speech, of course, was a wonder to behold. =)) He says he's going for all the rest of the remaining 46 states - yeh, you do that Newtsy. :-bd

Wash. Post:





Romney 46.4%


Gingrich 31.9%


Santorum 13.4%


Paul 7.0%Frothy is going to have to drop out next, even if he did respond to his trouncing by attacking Newtie.





Who will get Frothy's supporters? If you add his number to Gingrich's, suddenly Newtie has 45.3% and is lookin' good. Can a Frothy supporter bring him/herself to vote for Mittens?

That's the way I see it. Santorum drops out after Arizona, maybe before. His supporters go to Gingrich, almost all of them. Nobody comes out a clear winner after Super Tuesday, just like the Dems in 2008. Gingrich may make it to the convention still alive. Ron Paul's not spending money. He can hang in a long time.That's what happened in my dream, anyway. 8>

What happened to all that tea party power?Seriously, where'd it go?There's the possibility that a white Republican could win.

I don't there ever was a "Tea Party Movement". What you had was a bunch of white, mostly Southern conservative Republicans who were as mad as hell that a Democrat, and a black smart one to boot, took back "their" White House. They branded themselves as the "Tea Party" and Fox News went orgasmic for about a year. The minority gains in the 2010 midterms (within historical norms) were billed as validation of a new movement when in reality it was the same old Republican solid south and born again evangelicals who have been getting undeserved coverage for 30 years.

But when I look at the map, I see a wider regional distribution and what it screams to me is OIL AND GAS industry. Look at Texas and Louisiana leading the pack followed by Florida. About a third of the group falls outside the Old South. The people we see at the events are those you describe, but the money and the influence and benefits are flowing through pipelines we cannot see.

santorum Goes Full 'Tard:





Does it have a point? Maybe. Is it pants-on-head retarded to trash potential voters in public over it? Absolutely.





Santorum tells sick kid who complained about the price of his medicine "People have no problem paying $900 for an iPad, but paying $900 for a drug they have a problem with Why?" Because, of course, people buy a new iPad EVERY MONTH ([/break1]go.com/blogs/politics/2012/02/rick-santorum-tells-sick-kid-market-should-should-set-drug-prices/]abcnews.go.com, Russell Goldman)
