Willard, we have a problem

It’s not just that he didn’t win Alabama or Mississippi (as of this posting, NBC has called Alabama for Rick Santorum and Romney is stuck in third place, in Mississippi). It’s not just that he can’t get over 30 percent in either southern state. It’s that…

Newt Gingrich didn’t do well enough to maintain his rationale for going on. Now, the pressure on Newt to get out, having failed to win a single southern primary outside of Georgia (Santorum also won Tennessee) will be intense. And Newt staying in is the only thing keeping Romney from the one on me contes he’s been avoiding the entire primary.

If this gets down to one on one, Romney will be dragged even further right, his contradictions will become more glaring, and Santorum’s incentive to get out dwindles down to nil.

By the way, why isn’t Mitt doing better in Mississippi and Alabama? Not enough rich people. Seriously.

    Mitt and grits were never meant to be……… and speaking of food, Newt is toast. And it’s gaffe time for Santorum… with a couple of wins tonight, he will soon go off on a righteous rant.

    Today I am hearing that Mitt is doing a deal with Ron Paul, Ron Paul should give Mitt his delegates in exchange for the younger Paul (Rand) who seems crazier than his dad, be the choice for VP.
    What a twosome!!!!!!!!
