Romney's inevitability slip sliding away

Tough day for Willard "Mittens" Romney. His commanding lead in South Carolina is disintegrating. Latest polling shows Newt Gingrich as the frontrunner and his lead widens by the hour. Which ought to make tonight's episode of the Endless Debates a bit more interesting. Newt just can't hide his arrogance when he's ahead. And chances are he'll want to draw some blood before he gets beat up by his second ex-wife on Nightline tonight.

Meanwhile, Iowa finally got around to sort of certifying their caucus vote and the final tally shows Santorum actually won in Iowa by 34 votes. Or make that at least 34 votes. It seems eight districts mysteriously lost their ballots in the interim, so the vote can never be really certified but it's likely it would have raised Santorum's margin if they were counted. Not that it really matters now except Willard can't claim two victories in a row and has no chance to be the first ever to win three in a row. Willing to bet he already wrote that into his anticipated victory speech.

Which makes this picture Oliver Knox posted on twitter all the more poignant. Taken at a campaign stop last night, before all this horrible news broke this morning.

Nice photo; I like the chiaroscuro, but looking closely, Mitt seems to be the only one with nothing on his plate. Is that significant? Too nervous, too sick at heart to eat?

Or don't androids have stomachs?

I think androids don't eat food, just hydraulic fluids.

I'm enjoying watching these two slime balls tear each other up. Obama's going to cruise to reelection

Not sure he's going to cruise but he doesn't win against this field of idiots, then this country deserves to fail.
