Sorry, this thread wasn’t up when I posted the first results downstairs. You can delete that post, no biggie, I’m always OT on the fishin’ hole
Megyn and Brett up on FNC now….
So far I think Newt won Georgia and Romney won Virginia?
Wa caucuses were Saturday and from that I can say, turn out was huge. People couldn’t even get in the buildings so many showed up. We’re being told that Republicans are divided and there is no frontrunner or that Mitt is the leader but everyone hates him, but the over all attitude is really, Anybody But Obama. People turned out to get the ball rolling on Obama’s eviction. At least in this state, people will happily vote for a dead goat if necessary. If this kind of enthusiasm carries over to the GE, Obama really could lose.
The Repub candidates have been looking particularly clownish lately. I personally despise OFA and their Chicago dirty politics more, but they’ve def played some strong cards so far this year. It’s going to be an ugly fall election.

I wouldn’t restrict it to the candidates. The whole party has jumped the shark.
Santorum seems to be having a good night.
Unfortunately for him, Romney is having a better one.
Romney is only winning the counties in OH that would go to Obama in the general. Don’t know if that’s good or bad for him.
79% of the votes counted and Satanorum is clinging to a narrow lead in Ohio
89% and Romney’s got a narrow lead.
Without Gingrich splitting the anti-Romney vote, Santorum would probably be kicking his butt. fwiw.
95% and it looks like Mitt might pull out another win.
fwiw, According to exit polling, in all the GOP primaries so far only 1 in 10 voters have been under 30. Those are some bad demographics.
Those were some bad Republicans
Wait, there’s an election tonight.
Looks like Romney takes Ohio. He’s 12K ahead with 96% reporting. The other interesting race was Tenn, but Santorum won that one big.
VA went 60/40 mittens/paul. Newt wins GA. Santorum gets ND and OK. No data on Idaho. Romney gets the rest.
Really no surprises as it turns out.
Conservative Dem Marcy Kaptur beat Dennis Kucinich in the newly expanded OH 9th which stretches from Toledo to the western working class suburbs of Cleveland. It’ll be a key battleground district in November, and it’s probably a good bellweather (both economic and social) for the whole general election. In any case, Santorum had the edge in the district tonight.
That is interesting news. Can’t say I’m the least bit sorry that asshat lost. He’s a fraud. He pretends to be the liberal voice when the vote doesn’t matter. Then when it does, he is a team player. So the only point of his (and Bernie’s for that matter) existence it to fool real liberals into thinking the Dem party gives a shit about liberal causes.
Guess craping on Hillary and siding with Obama paid off big for Dennis. /snark
Time wounds all heels
CNN seems to think they got big news when they interviews Palin and she said anything is possible to a question about if the convention were brokered and asked, would she be open to taking the nomination. So stupid. She has made it clear in the past that first, the machine and cronies would never ask, but of course like anyone, you’d consider such a request. Duh. Here’s the link to the CNN video (they don’t embed I don’t think).
