Ricky hits a triple TKO

It was all the rage last week, but today Willard Romney's inevitability takes a nose dive under Ricky Santorum's three state primary sweep. Subdued celebrating at Romney's Colorado HQ last night while his exhausted aide tried to draw a happy face on Romney's dismal loss.
“I think we’ll do well here against Obama,” he said. “Colorado’s a tough state now, it’s going to be in play. It’ll be a tough state.”
He does have something of a point. The Republican intramural contest is whole different beast than the general. And as Charlie so aptly points out, yesterday's slugfest says more about GOP voters than the candidates:
The Republican nominating process last night was rendered a howling mess for the next two months. Super Tuesday is going to be a bloodbath, especially in the South, where Willard will have to see if he can grovel any lower than he already has, where N. Leroy Gingrich, Definer of Civilization's Rules and Leader (Perhaps) of the Civilizing Forces, will make his last stand in places like Alabama and Mississippi, where Ron Paul can continue about the business of Being Ron Paul, and where Rick Santorum can try to build on the momentum he is alleged to have developed last night, when no delegates were on the line, but when he clearly became the favorite candidate of a political movement reduced at the moment to its essential nihilism, and when he became the vessel for that vast number of things about which a fuck need not be given, including the truth, science, the Republican party, and that fragile old republic called the United States of America.
Meanwhile, The Donald slings a bit of mud in Ricky's direction and dreams of future glory in a Romney administration.
On a Romney cabinet position, Trump continues, “I don’t know maybe a position where I negotiate against some of these countries. Because they are really taking our lunch.”
Hmmm. Does it sound like he's expecting to become the next Secretary of State to you? Can you imagine that? And here we thought Bolton had a lock on the title as the absolute worst SoS ever. One thing for sure with Republicans, it can always get worse. [graphic via]
