Romney's landslide victory of 8 votes over
For his part, Santorum is ecstatic to the point of speechlessness. Let's hope he stays that way. Don't hold your breath however. You know he won't hold his.
In the meantime one Texan goes home sad and rejected. Another Texan feels good about coming in third, and the whacko from Minnesota is still trying to figure out what happened. Finishing next to last is not so bad I guess. Just imagine where she would have finished had she not spent so much time in Iowa. The word is her seat in Congress is a lock if she wants it. Her campaign lackeys insist her focus is on running for president. That's the spirit Michelle. Spending time jousting with windmills is so much more important than representing your district in Congress.
Newt left in a huff, an angry and petulant spoiled little brat. Mumbling something about New Hampshire would be his because he was the only real conservative who did not lie. Okay so I made that last part up. But let's face it, Newt is such a blowhard who's ego dwarfs the combined egos of the rest of his opponents - is there any other way for him to react? He is doing this country a favor by offering to run it for us. We should be grateful. I'm sure he looks at it that way.
And even though Jon Huntsman did not run in Iowa, he still got 745 Iowans to give him a thumbs up. He is concentrating on New Hampshire and asking the voters there, " to upend conventional wisdom and hand him a victory on January 10." Hmm. The term "conventional wisdom" seems an oxymoron coming out of the mouth of a Republican candidate. But I guess if running on policies that have been re-looping like an old 8 Track tape these past 30 years is conventional, then I guess there is some wisdom in there somewhere.
Next up for the All Republican Comedy Revue - New Hampshire. Be there or be square.
