Teeny sent me this:

RAUCOUS CAUCUS in the STL exurbs today:

...A caucus in the gymnasium at Francis Howell North High School in St. Peters was shut down after about a half hour of boisterous disputes, some of it over a caucus rule barring videotaping and other recording.

Supporters of presidential candidate Ron Paul repeatedly yelled objections to decisions made by caucus organizers.

St. Peters police arrested two Paul supporters at the scene after they gave them "numerous warnings to leave the school property."

Police said Brent Stafford of O'Fallon, a leader in Paul's St. Charles County campaign, and Kenneth Suitter of St. Charles County, were booked for trespassing and released...


Participants in Saturday's caucuses weren't actually selecting their choice for presidential nominee. They were selecting delegates who will appear at two larger meetings in April and June, part of the reason why results won't be known officially until next month...

Santorum this morning:

"He may have had some success in making money for himself and his partners at Bain Capital, and I give him a lot of credit for doing so, but that’s a very different thing than going out and creating the atmosphere for people to create jobs."

Translation: Mitt Romney always makes money for his partners. One by one, our old friends are gone. Death--natural or not...women...words...Mitt Romney is the only one left--because he always made money for his partners.

Rick Santorum.

Well, I guess this finally does at least let me know where he stands on the mandated use of condoms in the adult film industry. Before he was sending mixed signals.

Santorum's call for all Puerto Ricans to learn Nadsat has not worked out.

Anti-Romney ad being run by Illinois firefighters. If this stuff is showing up in the primary, it's only going to get worse in the general.

I'll have to watch the famously long tracking shot of the traffic jam in Weekend extra closely next time. If I spot a dog tied to one of the car roofs, it'll make perfect sense.

If that's Daniel, Esq., seconded. He used to kill me on this thread, before he was abducted by Santorum's people.

Anyway, after Illinois comes the next episode: all-Mitt, all the time.

This is pretty pure:

Three days after that, on March 8, “Deputy Treasury Director” Taylor Swindle wrote Harmon.

“Sorry for the delay,” wrote Swindle. “We should be getting a bunch of expense reports out today and tomorrow. I’ll keep you updated.”

Harmon said he’s yet to receive any of the $27,000 he’s owed.

Asked about the reimbursements, Hammond, Gingrich’s press secretary, said they had rectified the problem.

“Am told checks have been sent,” he said in an email.

Taylor Swindle has to be one of the all time greatest real names.

I was at a book-talk screening of The Spy Who Came in from the Cold tonight--bleak, squalid, a little depressing. And now I come home to Mitt Romney, Smiling Nominee.

OMG these candidates are just gifts that keep on giving (sorry if this was already posted)


MOLINE, Ill. — Both Mitt and Ann Romney turned their attention to the concerns of women voters at a pancake breakfast in western Illinois this morning, focusing on issues such as spending and high gas prices.

“Is there anyone in here that is going to vote for Obama next time? Is there anybody? I mean, we’re really upset,” said Ann Romney, who took the stage at the American Legion Post 246, where her husband Mitt had doled out pancakes to a crowd of about 200 before making remarks.

“And I love it that women are upset, too, that women are talking about the economy, I love that,” she said. “Women are talking about jobs, women are talking about deficit spending. Thank you, women. We need you. We all need you in November, too. We have to remember why we’re upset and what we’ve got to do to fix things.”
