The Inevitable Primary Morning Open Thread

Coming to terms with the gripping prospect of five more primaries today, in New York, Connecticut, Delaware, Pennsylvania, and Rhode Island, Politico got me off to a rocky start this morning with a mental image I didn’t welcome and couldn’t stomach Photoshopping (no need for thanks, really):

With Mitt Romney and the national press corps now focused on the general election, Gingrich is hoping to become the Christine O’Donnell of the 2012 race ....

Apparently, Newt may pull off a surprise and win Delaware; then again, he may well not. If he doesn’t, he may suspend his campaign by the end of the week; then again, he may well not. Go sit on the naughty step if you thought he already had. I’ll budge up to make room for you.

Ron Paul’s campaign is still working on its convention strategy to gain some primary delegates to add to caucus ones he’s managed to finagle in order to cement his place in history by nailing the underpants gnome vote.

Zombie Rick Santorum is still on the ballot, and may gain some votes from diehard supporters or folks who just don’t follow the news.

Meanwhile, Mitt plans to shake up his Etch A Sketch, hitch up his pants, and segue from being the presumptive to the presumptious nominee:

Voters in New York, Connecticut, Delaware, Rhode Island and Pennsylvania will cast ballots Tuesday. But Romney won’t be in any of those states Tuesday night. Instead, he’ll return to New Hampshire, the state where a sweeping primary victory in January set him down the path to the GOP presidential nomination.

From the Radisson Hotel downtown, Romney plans a speech he’s titled “A Better America Begins Tonight.” The general election speech, aides say, will represent a definitive pivot away from the primary contest and toward Democratic President Barack Obama and the general election

So what will you be focusing on to distract yourself/try to cope with the suspense on this most auspicious of days?

“A Better America Begins Tonight.”

As he begins the noble task of losing the general election.

Well, Charles Pierce is being brilliant again.

...We have to stop dreaming of wealth. We have to stop behaving as though a self-governing republic should operate on the same principles as a state lottery, where its benefits come to us only by blind chance….

OK, that I believe.
