And it’s Mittens by 8 votes.

Our long Iowa nightmare is finally over. We can now go on to concern ourselves with things that matter.

If you look at the map, you’ll note that Santorum dominates it except for a few voter heavy (urban?) enclaves, which is a pattern we recognize from general elections where the latter tend to be liberal socialist strongholds. Take from that what you will.

Then there’s Luap Nor in third, expressing the “none of the above” protest vote combined with the liberal Operation Chaos vote since they, having no dog in the fight, would like nothing more than a candidate who cannot win.

Finally, we have Governor Perry and the Newt in fourth and fifth and Bachmann in sixth who, at this point, really needs to start considering whether she’s in it for herself or if she’s in it to become the 2011 version of Huckabee, ensuring Mittens’ nomination.

Our predictions? Mittens will do well in damnyankee New Hampshire but he’ll be a dead man walking once his campaign passes the Mason-Dixon line where we don’t tend to like used car salesmen with no firm positions other than abortion is good, healthcare mandates are just fine and social mores don’t matter a whole damn lot. He’s dead down here as far as the primaries go.

The only question remaining is who’s going to drop out and endorse a not-Romney? And who’s that not-Romney going to be?

We stand by Governor Perry as the only candidate who is conservative and enough of an arsehole to stand by his convictions, but we’ll support just about anybody who isn’t flip-flop Mittens. What we won’t support is a no-hope candidate whose only purpose is to split the vote enough to ensure Obamney’s nomination.

Thatisall.

Good morning. I just looked at Drudge at about 4:30am EST and it’s Rick Santorum by 18 over Mittens.
:em01:
Mittens may win in NH but I promise he will NOT get my vote! I may live in the Granite State, but I don’t have rocks in my head.
:em07:

***update***
I guess that Drudge went to sleep early too. :/

The good news, ‘Lil Mittens can get knocked off his pedestal, and I, along with everyone else, pray that he does. Maybe he’ll get complacent in NH and get his ass handed to him, I like to think positive!

Trust me, with that wet waffle gets his yankee ass down here to SC, he will get spanked. There must be a contingent of yankee’s down here in the upstate who will vote for mittens cuz they voted for ghramnasty. Most everyone else down here has a clue. Can’t drive worth a shit, but they are at least somewhat conservative.

The fact that that freak Santorum came so close actually makes me want to vomit in my mouth! And the fact that Mittens is so damn fucking smarmy and sure that he deserves the nomination because it’s somehow his turn makes me want some crazy coot like Ron Paul to beat him. Just once. Just in a state that doesn’t… Read more »

Guys, It’s going to be Romney. That was decided some time ago. Watching this ‘Primary’ nonsense has convinced me that finally, my vote is meaningless. I get to ‘choose’ between a Communist and a Liberal Democrat come November, and I seriously doubt that my vote will matter a tinker’s damn. They’ve learned not to give the Premier 99% of the… Read more »

You can see it in the way the media handled the debates and how they flat out torpedoed every candidate that made a serious surge….Bachmann, Perry, Cain, Newt, Santorum next…..every one of them get picked off… Read more »

Even though Romney won in Iowa( Barely), I think the consensus is clear. Over 75% of the voters want someone who is not Romney. Some may fret over Ron Paul’s strong performance but as Misha said in the header of this post he’s really just a placeholder for None of the Above. Now that Bachmann has dropped out of the… Read more »

Southern Libertarian says: I’m not a big fan of him either from his days in the Senate because he’s just another “Compassionate Conservative” like Bush. His opposition to the repeal of DADT, while I fully respect his right to an opinion, I do not respect the way he treated that Soldier who asked him a question during the debate. I… Read more »

Dear God, that quiz has me going 63% for Romney. WTF? Perry was second, though he is who I personally prefer. For love of all that is holy it had Obamandias as a third for heaven’s sake. Nah that is not a skewed poll.

The problem that Romney will have if he becomes the nominee is that the longer Santorum, Gingrich, and Perry stays in the race, the longer he will have to pretend that his is the Hard Right Conservative.

That’s like Verne Troyer pretending he’s Shaquille O’Neal.
