    1. Maybe Santorum should have the P spot and someone else the VP
    2. MITTens probably went home using a bunch of tissues while he WEEP
    3. ginGRINCH is a 3-way LOSER and should "get out" or continue to be a CREEP
    4. Ron Paul is still having a Ball and most likely still had his beauty sleep
    5. President Obama – who is in the lead – in November, will win the last heap!!!

    Obama 2012!!

    A trifecta for Santorum, things are reshaping, it will be interesting. Let see if Newt concede and rally behind Santo against Mittens.

    II find it nearly laughable that reports about "sweeps" and "votes" for the last few weeks seem to carry the weight of something that is actually measurable and truly means something. Does anyone realize what a singularly miniscule amount of people who are actually voting in these "primaries" and it makes the news? These last 3 caucuses were, except for Missouri, less than 60,000 total votes. There are probably individual polling places in the general election with more votes eminating, let alone towns, precincts, counties, and States.... and Missouri, with about 200,000 total votes yesterday doesn't even count. Any of the 4 fighting it out for King Elephant will be the best thing that could happen to the Obama campaign. It clearly shows the weird dogma from the wackos and cretins in thumper or teapartyville that should make any American cringe. I'm rooting for Newt because my wife says I seem to live on the moon anyway. Bill Ontario, Canada
