"I hit him as hard as I could. He hit me hard as he could. It turned out he had more things to hit with than I did."

- Newt Gingrich • Sounding pretty close to making a concession speech to Mitt Romnney in an interview on “Fox News Sunday” this morning. Gingrich, who previously sounded like he was banking on a brokered convention in Tampa to revive his hopes, stuck behind that manta, but says that Romney “far and away the most likely Republican nominee,” suggesting that Gingrich is seeing that possibility mostly as a pipe dream. Rick Santorum, currently running second, has said that he needs to win his home state of Pennsylvania to stay in the race — which looks like it might be difficult, as his fundraising is very weak at the moment. In other words, the inevitable is starting to look more and more inevitable. (via shortformblog)

Dead Presidents: swag-gr asked: Can you explain Santorum's success thus far? It's just so unfathomable...

(Rebloggable format by request)

No, I can’t.

That’s the thing: I literally cannot explain why someone who believes the things that Rick Santorum believes and says the things that Rick Santorum says can be a leading contender for a major party’s Presidential nomination this late in a campaign…

I was about to write something about why I have such a massive distaste for santorum (all of the puns) but then I realized Dead Presidents was a few steps ahead of me.

Here are some things I’ve been up to lately:

The top 3 pictures are from my Mardi Gras excursion with some friends, including Steph.

The first is of 3 dancing bear statues made by the Inuit people that I fell in love with at the New Orleans Museum of Art. The middle is the view from a cafe in the French quarter that we ducked into to wait out the torrential rain that came out of nowhere on Saturday. The third is a quick shot I grabbed of Bourbon street in the afternoon to send to a friend, it was much, much more crowded and crazy than it appears. It also doesn’t show the beads constantly flying through the air which is more of a hazard than you’d think.

The bottom are from the sadie’s dance I rocked last weekend. The left picture is of Terra and me at dinner and the right is of my pal Evan with a sign we “borrowed” from the front of some neighborhood on the way to an after party.

  • yes…Rick Santorum swept tonight’s nominating contests, winning Colorado and Minnesota’s caucuses in addition to Missouri’s primary. He’s now won more states than Mitt Romney.
  • however…No delegates were awarded tonight, so these victories—as well as all victories to this point—are significant primarily from the standpoint of public perception and media narratives. source

non binding primaries are for real dumb.

"In essence, they played the game, lost, and then complained that the rules were unfair."

- A federal judge • Revealing that the four candidates that did not make the Virginia ballot — two of whom complained loudly — will not get a second chance to hop on said ballot. That sound you hear is Ron Paul’s supporters cheering, because that gives them a huge advantage in taking on Mitt Romney; Paul’s the only other candidate besides Romney to get their signatures to the state in time.

rick santorum's communist relatives are kind of embarrassed of him

fromthemitten:

Santorum often touts his grandfather’s flight from Italy “to escape fascism,” but he has neglected to publicly mention their close ties with the Italian Communist Party. “Rick’s grandfather Pietro was a liberal man and he understood right away what was happening in Italy,” Mrs. Santorum told Oggi. ‘He was anti-fascist to the extreme, and the political climate in 1925 was stifling so he left for America.’”

We’ve got to go to sleep for the night, but the latest reporting, from CBS’s Jan Crawford, has Mitt Romney’s camp declaring victory by fourteen votes. We’ll be back in the morning.

I don’t have a lot of time but I have a lot of opinions so given the last few debates here is how the talking heads are doing in my estimation.

Jon Huntsman is the adult in the room and it isn’t doing him any favors with his own party but it’s giving him support from the other side.

Herman Cain is haha oh wait.

Ron Paul is surprisingly rational when it comes to understanding concepts like bombing other people pisses them off and makes them want to bomb us. Unfortunately, he’s still a racist, classist, sexist old dude.

Michele Bachmann is still convinced she’s a serious candidate, no one else is. When Newt Gingrich can make fun of you for being factually inaccurate you should really give up.

Rick Perry is not Tim Tebow and is not entirely sure that Mexico and Iran aren’t in cahoots. Too dumb to function. Bravo Texas, you present us with such quality.

Newt Gingrich is not nearly as smart as he thinks he is, but is convincing a lot of Republicans otherwise. He’s just cocky enough to make it work.

Mitt Romney has no real opinions and still might get to be the POTUS. 

Rick Santorum is not real.

"I’m very concerned about the militant socialists and radical Islamists joining together."

"We don’t pay a lot of mind to the bottom tier candidates."

- Ron Paul advisor Jesse Benton, responding to Rick Santorum’s criticism of Paul’s condemnation of the killing of Anwar Al-Awlaki. (via dcdecoder)

Anyone who’s watched a debate knows that Santorum pays way too much attention to Ron Paul, and this is a hilarious rip.  (via shortformblog)

hahaha oh Ron Paul…
