That is correct. The governor’s machine has their element of shills though it has thought to be more systematic in blue states.

We have been so very niave, for too long.

In Birmingham the turnout was quite low - probably lowest I have experienced in 20 years. They ask for your driver’s license which is good. Ask you whether you are a dem or a pub and hand you the ballot. Voted for Scott Beason to hopefully unseat Spencer “stab-us in the back-us” Bachus.

It may be that Newt drops out tomorrow, if he fails to gain top spot in both Alabama and Missippi, and if he were to fall to third place in one of the two of them. But that is just conjecture. Heck, Rick Santorum could drop out tomorrow, too, for lack of cash, as he is running on bailing wax and string and hopes and prayers at this point against Goliath Romney. I think the template to watch for is Michelle Bachman after Iowa. She threw in the towel after “must haves”, even though leading up to it as I recall indications were she (said she) would stay in. At any rate, a very volatile race and could be down to a two man race (with Paul as a shill) by the weekend. /armchair theorizing off

Haley Barbour was a huge disappointment to me when he chose Romney. I have lost respect for a number of prominent people during this process

Oh yes, me too.

All the GOP-E elected office holders who endorsed Romney are RNC players who want to advance their careers and they're betting on Romney.

They're "Team Players" --- sound familiar?

My county has not reported.

Romney is winning in the highly government counties. Mine is too, (sort of).

A nice shot of Grey Goose in my Sweet Tea sounds GOOD.

Speaking of which, did anyone listen to Tom Marr* who substituted for Mark Levin last Friday (or Thursday maybe)? I couldn't believe my ears - he was shilling for Romney the entire hour, hung up on people who tried to point out Mitt's myths. I finally turned him off and went elsewhere on satellite radio.

*Tom Marr always talks about Grey Goose vodka when he subs for Mark

Understood. Still, Romney is one of these perception-over-substance guys, a sales type rather than an engineer, and if he loses both it means egg on his face. If the numbers hold - and we're 50% done with MS, 25% with AL - and Santorum takes BOTH (proportional allocation notwithstanding), the pressure will be on Newt to throw his support to Rick. I'd say the same thing BTW if the reverse were true as I'd support either man.

The downside is this: if one of them drops it cuts the size of Romney's battlefront in half. Some have made a compelling argument that it's actually advantageous to have both men in the race and running strong provided our goal is to keep Romney from 1144.

Sad thing for conservatives is that this will not be a big win for anyone.

It is all so close, the victor will be Romney.

Can’t say I like those numbers but considering all the media’s been pushing for Santorum to keep Newt out of the game..... Newt’s doing very well.....

Ok time to pray......Newt’s the only one who will stand against Obama and certainly the only one who can make it happen from day one in Washington.....Santorum would have problems adapting just learning where the door handles on the rooms and where they are.....I don’t want someone who has to find there way around, in all respects......no time for that.

And even if Santorum’s been a Senetor.....he does not have good judgement nor does he deliver unless it makes him’King” for the day.

Hey I hear Santorum’s son thinks Romney’s great....figure that!

“I could use a vodka martini right now. Perhaps 3 or 4.”

If I had some, I’d let you drink all you want and to hell with the consequences. I’m about at the point to fly to your state and buy fat foods, sugary foods, and alcohol of our choices and just sit there with your dog and your ducks and have a food orgy. You know the emergency response people, think you are in charge of that, so put them on stand-by and we’ll have a good time. Would your wife join in or complain we were going to die?

GO NEWT!

With that, for sure, Santorum will stay in the race (winning one of the two, in this case, Alabama). I expect a victory speech soon. Or perhaps he will wait until Miss is confirmed, and it would be icing to win that one as well within the context of his victory speech).

Do you know how ridiculous that sounds? It's time people stopped just making stuff up and got behind our candidate no matter who it is. If we don't stop Obama, there will be no more elections.

Newt has more votes in Miss (barely) but Santorum is 1% up. I have hope it will turn around in Newt's favor.

Well Santorum's son knows that his daddy endorsed Mitt in the last election. I am sure they were friendly! I wonder if the voters are really informed and have looked into each candidates background OR if they are voting based on the tv ads, smear attacks and goobledeegook...they hear from the media
