2. Newt's attempt to win over

the NE Jewish Retiree votes. He is sounding mean, and desperate, right now.

3. LBN rules say you should use the published title as the thread title

An excerpt would be nice, too - 'mad' could mean almost anything.

4. And for a very sane reason

It's NOT a done deal that the FL delegates are winner-take-all.
...The party's primary rules were intended to encourage a longer primary season, while ensuring that four smaller states Iowa, New Hampshire, Nevada, and South Carolina hold the first contests. Only those states were permitted to hold primaries or caucuses before March 6, the RNC decreed, while any state that held a contest prior to April 1 would award its delegates proportionally. Under the rules, any party that violated the sanctioned calendar would lose half its delegates and potentially face further penalties.

Republican leaders in Florida, determined to give the state a big say in picking the nominee, decided having their delegation slashed from 99 to 50 was worth it and set Florida's primary for Jan. 31. The RNC has said Florida will be a winner-take-all primary, but...(a)ll it takes is a registered Florida Republican to file a protest with the RNC, and the party's contest committee would have to consider the issue when it meets in August just before the convention.

So the the smaller Gingrich's margin of defeat, the more more FL delegates he gets in the event of a proportional delegate distribution.

5. Please change the title of the OP to the title seen on the news article's link.

That is one of the rules of LBN. You should include some text from the actual article and include your statement below it.

IE:

1. Title (in title bar)

2. Paragraphs excerpted.

3. Link to the source.


4. Personal Commentary.



If it isn't changed I will be required to lock the thread.

If you have any questions feel free to ask!
