Romney Wins Florida Primary, Regaining Momentum



Mitt Romney has won the Florida primary after aggressively beating back a challenge from Newt Gingrich and regaining momentum on his relentless march toward the Republican presidential nomination.

Interviews with voters as they exited the polls in Florida allow The New York Times to project that Mr. Romney will win the state by a wide margin over Mr. Gingrich, who will come in second. Ron Paul and Rick Santorum will finish the night behind the two leaders.

The campaign now shifts immediately to Nevada, which will hold its caucuses on Saturday. Mr. Gingrich has vowed to continue his battle against a man he calls “a Massachusetts moderate.” And Mr. Santorum and Mr. Paul have already left Florida to begin campaigning in the upcoming states.

Does this bread look good to you? Out of the oven and into my family's mouths.

It's black olive, roasted red peppers, wheat bread with some whole wheat and a bit of added gluten.
It seems to be a hit around here.

Reince Priebus - once more - remove the vowels

I fully believe they made his name up in a secret committee and thought we would not catch on.

Yup.

"Retarded Grandparents"

Written by a third grader, on what his grandparents do.

After Christmas, a teacher asked her young pupils how they spent their
holiday away from school. One child wrote the following:
We always used to spend the holidays with Grandma and Grandpa. They used
to live in a big brick house, but Grandpa got retarded and they moved to
Arizona. Now they live in a tin box and have rocks painted green to look
like grass.
They ride around on their bicycles, and wear name tags, because
they don't know who they are anymore. They go to a building called a wreck
center, but they must have got it fixed because it is all okay now, they do
exercises there, but they don't do them very well.
There is a swimming pool too, but they all jump up and down in it with hats on.
At their gate, there is a doll house with a little old man sitting in it. He watches all day so
nobody can escape. Sometimes they sneak out, and go cruising in their golf
carts. Nobody there cooks, they just eat out. And, they eat the same thing
every night - early birds.
Some of the people can't get out past the man in the doll house. The ones who do get out bring food back to the wrecked center for pot luck. My Grandma says that Grandpa worked all his life to earn
his retardment, and says I should work hard so I can be retarded someday
too.
When I earn my retardment, I want to be the man in the doll house. Then
I will let people out, so they can visit their grandchildren

Sarah Palin Urges Newt Vote in Florida, Says Gingrich Will 'Clobber' Obama

Sarah Palin Urges Newt Vote in Florida, Says Gingrich Will 'Clobber' Obama

Sarah Palin is urging Florida voters to vote for Newt Gingrich on Tuesday in their state's Republican primary.

"Vote for Newt," Palin told Jeanine Pirro, host of the Fox News weekend program "Justice with Jeanine."

Palin made a passionate plea for Republican voters to reject Mitt Romney in Florida to keep the primary process going forward.

The former Alaska governor made it crystal clear that she favors former House Speaker Gingrich, suggesting that the Republican establishment in New York and Washington is trying to anoint former Massachusetts Gov. Romney the GOP nominee.

"And I say, you know, you’ve got to rage against the machine at this point in order to defend our republic and save what is good and secure and prosperous about our nation,” Palin said. “We need somebody who is engaged in sudden and relentless reform and is not afraid to shake up the establishment. So, if for no other reason, rage against the machine, vote for Newt, annoy a liberal, vote Newt, keep this vetting process going, keep the debate going.”

Here are key points Palin made on Fox:

Mitt Romney borrows Tom Brokaw Broadcast about Gingrich Ethics Violations

In new 30-second Florida TV spot, Boston uses NBC Nightly News footage from January 1997 to detail Gingrich's ethics violations.

NBC’S TOM BROKAW: “Good evening. Newt Gingrich, who came to power, after all, preaching a higher standard in American politics, a man who brought down another Speaker on ethics accusations, tonight he has on his own record the judgment of his peers, Democrat and Republican alike. By an overwhelming vote, they found him guilty of ethics violations; they charged him a very large financial penalty, and they raised – several of them – raised serious questions about his future effectiveness.”

The secret is out, here's what President Obama said to Governor Jan Brewer accd to Bill Maher:

-paraphrasing, probably poorly, because I was laughing hard through his whole monologue-

"I had the Navy Seals in the most dangerous country in the world last night, they flew in in the dark, they rescued the hostages, and killed every single one of the pirates. Are you sure you want to keep wagging that finger in my face?"

Mark Foley, Mario Batali, Dana Rohrabacher, Martin Bashir and Kennedy are the guests, and it's on already. Will be repeated at 11 on HBO EST

I must say this monologue was so funny I almost could not stand it.
Do yourself a favor and see it tonight if you can, or don't pass up on seeing a link later. Bill Maher was in rare form, and the happenings this week gave him plenty of fodder tor
