Santorum creeping up. Has a shot at second here, since all the Romney areas are pretty much in.

Not a chance.

Definitely true. I think Newt can still win there, but it won’t be as huge a victory as SC (at least as the earlier polls indicated. I am not checking the results every few minutes right now).

Romney recently and hesitantly agreed to the debates in Fla. He is not happy. Santorum will be a wild little man and on the attack. Many feel he should remain in and allow the process to evolve. I believe he is a spoiler. Read his voting record and it is NOT conservative. GO NEWT!

I'm guessing the early returns are coming from the counties with larger cities and towns.

I'm hoping the spread gets wider as the rural precincts roll in.

The question is: Does Bubba identify with Mittens? Will the "dog on the roof" picture look enough like a Lab in the pickup? Does the Romney hairstyle look enough like Gomer Pyle? So many questions.

A valid point, and remember too, Newt will build on - and I think convert - those reasonable and conservative Ron Paul supporters who are drawn to his defense of Liberty. Newt will do a very good job of promoting liberty and all those core constitutional values too.

I see him as showing his inner bitch.

Now would have been a good time for him to make a few short and polite concession comments, then speak of his vision of the future of our country and his plans for Florida.

Instead, he lowered himself to the level of a sore loser.

There is no real man within him.

And then, Daily Kos Chimes in with this wonderful quote from one of the nutjobs:

“Newt was the candidate who best expressed his hate for minorities, the poor and liberals. The racist SC GOP responded with voting for one of their own.”

EXPECT THIS TO BE THE MSNBC.NBC.NPR meme they will be pushing, all week.

But I know who John Anderson is now.

You're WAY ahead of me :)

He was a Republican who entered the 1980 Presidential race late. The Republicans had a couple of candidates. You may have heard of one: Ronald Reagan (I'm just kidding).

Anderson supported a number of Jimmy Carter's positions and was waaaaaaaay to the left of Reagan. "Run as an independent!" the media said. He ran as an independent. The darling of the press and college students who couldn't articulate a single one of his positions. He was fairly successful as a third-party candidate and a media darling.

I didn't give my actual quote above.

I had two friends who were still undergrads from a southern school visiting me in Boston, where I attended a Well-Known Eastern Business School.

I was giving them a tour of Boston and when we hit Quincy Market there were cameras and lights everywhere, and a national news guy whose name escapes me (ack!). Lots of young people in styrofoam 'straw' hats with Anderson's name on the band, and Anderson t-shirts.

He actually started to interview the young lady out the of three of us about Anderson. She (now Mrs. Scoutmaster; and she says she still has an Anderson button somewhere, because I just asked her) had a southern accent and he asked her she was in Boston. She said she was visiting me (pointing at me) and that I attended a Well-Known Eastern Business School. The interviewer stepped to me, the cameras turned to me, and the interviewer asked me if I had heard John Anderson speak on the undergraduate campus the night before.

I said "John Anderson? I've never heard of him."

About a week later, there was a national special on Anderson, with a segment on how he had to battle name recognition. The evidence? The clip with me. (I caught abuse the next day, trust me.)

For the rest of the campaign, whenever any news station talked about Anderson's problem with name recognition, they pulled the clip with me. I saw myself more times on TV during that campaign than I did in a mirror.

After the Myrtle Beach debate Rick S even went so far as to call a tax cut (letting people keep their Social Security money instead of paying it to FedGov) an entitlement program.

I’ve only voted early absentee once in my life. Ya never know what’s going to happen. I ‘get’ Perry since he only pulled out of the race this week, and same for Huntsman, but Cain? The only explanation I can think of is that military ballots are sent out well in advance of the elections.

Obviously, the Perry/Huntsman/Cain/Bachmann votes won’t affect the outcome, but I’d be disappointed if it turned out my vote was for naught.

I donated to Santorum, but if the final winning ticket was Newt/Santorum that would be just too sweet to see the Kos Kooks’ react. I think there would be a shortage of Japanese knives for ceremonial suicide.
