Super Tuesday: The results so far looking good for Romney, Gingrich
- Newt Newt Gingrich did well right out of the gate, winning Georgia, a state which he served in Congress for years.
- Mitt Not far behind was Mitt, who won contests in Virginia and Vermont. He’s cornered the “V” states, folks!
- Rick The guy who has given Mitt the most fits is banking his hopes on Ohio, where he’s doing well in exit polls.
- Ron The Libertarian and sneaker-wearer is hoping for some caucus magic in states like North Dakota. source
There are a couple amendments I might suggest.
- A win in Georgia for Newt Gingrich is a lot like waking up on Monday morning. On one hand, it’s good news—in that whatever you did over the weekend, you’re not dead. Yet. On the other hand, it doesn’t, in itself, say much more than “not dead yet.” To really do well, Gingrich will need to take some other state.
- For Romney, winning Massachusetts and Vermont is like hearing the doctor say, “We’ve got the test results back.” It’s expected. At a minimum, it means that whatever you’re infected with isn’t so lethal that it destroyed the lab trying to test it. But you’ve got to wait a few more minutes to see if it’s good news.
- Santorum doing well in exit polls is really bad news for Romney. If Romney loses Ohio, he’s in trouble. It’s survivable. But it won’t be comfortable.
- Ron Paul’s shoes are orthopedic. I suppose if you’re really fashion-conscious, you could find a way to get tailored orthopedic shoes. But his shoe choice is more pragmatic than it is quirky or hip.
