For yet another Iowa opinion, here's my 2 cents...

...and quite possibly overpriced at that!

IMHO, last night little ricky santorum did to bain romney what George McGovern did to Ed Muskie in New Hampshire in 1972.

Back then, Muskie was the annointed front runner and definite establishment choice. In a matter of a few weeks, McGovern went from being an asterisk to a contender for a "strong finish" to a narrow defeat that stole all of the headlines from Muskie's victory. At one point Muskie was favored to win by 30+% and McGovern came within about 7%.

Now I don't expect that little ricky will be able to actually pull out the nomination (frothy or not), but after New Hampshire 1972, nobody expected that of McGovern either. The party establshment certainly did all it could do to prevent his nomination. They sure as hell didn't support him in the General Election either.

One thing that last night clearly shows is that bain romney is a very weak frontrunner.

If, by some miracle, little ricky IS their nominee, I only hope that he, who is one of the truest little shits I've ever seen in politics, gets the same beating that George McGovern (one of the most decent and honorable men I'v ever met in public life) took. McGovern didn't deserve to be electorally humiliated the way he was. little ricky destrves it to a "T".

Of course, one consolation to McGovern is that, given the aftermath for both he and tricky dickie, we learned that there are worse things that can happen in life than losing an election. Of the 2 men, whose post election life would YOU have rather had?
