Wah, Wah, Waaaaahhhhh

That’s one for every state Mittens lost yesterday, or rather, very early today, to the little man in the tight-fitting conservatism. Congratulations, Rick Santorum, you’re this week’s NotMitt! You have now won more contests than the putative front-runner. Oh, he’ll still get the nomination in the end, with his deep pocketed PAC and their Hortastic negative advertising genius (and now you can probably expect a little more of that genius to be expended on you, you Washington insider you). But thanks are in order, Rick.  You have not only won three states; you’ve underlined what the Democraps already know about the Republican electorate: Mitt Romney? Do.Not.Want.

So much for the Trump Effect.

Tom, perhaps that was the Trump Effect.

Now if he loses Michigan, the GOP could possibly head to the convention without a clear nominee. That would be Must See TV.

From your lips to the FSM’s noodly, ear-like appendages, Tom.

Oh, please, please, please!

LOL!  Agreed.

I think there is a good chance that Romney can lose MI.  If any of his opponents are willing to push his previous let Detroit fail statements… that will work to turn even the GOP reds against him in certain areas, where the auto industry is still important to them.

Of course, in the vast rural portions of MI that only have hunting and golf courses as an industry, there probably is a deep petty resentment of the auto industry… so Mitt will probably do well in those parts.  Well, at least with the golf course demographic.  With the hunter demographic…not so much.

Super PACs have already injected fifty-six million dollars into the 2012 race, most of it going to negative advertising.

That’s one way to create jobs I guess.

Am I the only one who thinks this might come around to bite all politicians in the ass this year?  People are already sick of negative ads; just wait until the SuperPAC money starts to really ramp up the ad buys.

String, I hope it does because I hate those freaking ads. But every metric I’ve seen indicates that although almost everyone claims to hate the ads, they are effective nonetheless. It would be awesome if that changed.

I’m hoping it bites the Republicans extra hard - and I can make a case that it would because they’ll have much more money to spend and will spend it on stupid, heavyhanded scary-music booga-booga ads because they can’t think of anything else.

If it causes Republicans more trouble than Democrats, there’s a chance that some sort of legislation or ruling defanging or getting rid of the Citizens United horseshit will actually happen.
