prediction: with the taste of near victory in his mouth, santorum loses god and gets bloodthirsty in some campaigning against mitt.
-Mitt’s dentist only uses the finest gold.
In other news, I think the dems are going Barry-O for their nomination. While the R’s managed to pick a guy who can’t win his state in a senate reelection. It’ll be great to see if Santorum can win New Hampshire (or Pennsylvania’s) nomination by electorate rather than caucus.
Unfortunately tonight I realized; win or loss, I’m going to see these already ripened nominating apples in future Republican Presidential nominations. Which leads me to my other realization; win or loss, Mitt only gives victory speeches.
tonights fact: Herman Cain received 58 votes. In fairness, most were from lunchladies at the cafeteria where the caucus was held in favor of “Pizza USA”
This week’s cover: although the presidency is theirs for the taking, America’s Republicans are in danger of throwing it away.
Thanks Mayor Bloomberg and NY Supreme Court Justice Michael Stallman for showing us how to directly wage class warfare over your obligations as public servants.

the whole Herman Cain interview stumble reveals, most of all, how hollow conservative opposition to the President is.
they hear the name Obama and they immediately knee jerk into the standard “oppose”; regardless of how informed they are of how events transpired or what his stance on policy is.
this isn’t just a trend for conservatives (even though its totally left our country shit out of luck in terms of a productive Congress); but its also the trend for anti establishment liberals, libertarians, political-hipsters, non conformists, etc.
dissent is a form of patriotism, but it should be the result of an the inability to reason out favorable understanding; not default.
compromise makes great leadership.
thanks Herman, for revealing how transparent (and hollow) your logic is.
Dick Cheney (pre 2008 election): if Obama is elected there will be another terrorist attack on America.
Mitt Romney (pre 2012 election): if Obama is reelected Iran will get a nuke.

White House Communications Director Dan Pfeiffer: “The American Jobs Act is being blocked by Republicans in the Senate who have voted in unison against these common-sense, broadly supported proposals, and Republicans in the House refuse to even give the bill a vote. Senate Republicans have offered their own alternative as an excuse to oppose the President’s plan, but a look at them side by side leads to only one conclusion: one is truly a jobs plan, and one is not.”
DC Decoder has looked at the GOP proposal twice, once for its rather slim pickings in terms of new proposals and a second time through the lens of Washington Post Fact Checker Glenn Kessler’s work (which was not kind to the bill.)
republicans demonize sharia law yet want to restrict abortion on religious grounds.
