Decision 2012: SC Edition

I am breaking with my tradition of posting anything but politics on the weekend…..I just have to voice my opinion of the GOP primary……..Perry’s gone!  The voter won that battle!

Yesterday while you were enjoying your Saturday the good people of South Carolina went to the polls and after a contentious and ugly campaign their votes have been counted…..and after demonstrating just how much the New South has NOT changed from the Old South………if you watched the South Carolina debate then you got a good idea how racist the South still is and how the candidates play into that racism…..but with that editorializing done……let’s move on to the winners and losers of the primary……polls closed at 7 pm and MSNBC projected a Gingrich win by 7:05…….

Gingrich–41%

Romney–28%

Santorum–18%

Paul–13%

There you are Gingrich ambushed Romney and now we have 3 winners in the first 3 contests….has NEVER happened in modern political history……Newt has gone fizzle to sizzle, at least for now……he has shot into the delegate lead…..this will afford him more free air time while Mitt spends like a bandit in heat…..will Santorum find the cash to go on past Florida?

Damn the rankings!  Full steam ahead to Florida!
