So apparently a more moderate and a less moderate conservative did quite well, and Ron Paul came in third.
And apparently two other conservatives are out and their backers are free to look for someone else. Let me guess how New Hampshire is going to turn out...
I swear, guys - when we said Ron Paul had no chance it wasn't anything personal. It's (a.) just math, and (b.) well maybe a little personal 'cause the guy thinks we're statists and we're amazed you think he's a "nice guy" despite the fact that he's pretty mean to people like me.
But it's mostly (a.) just math.
Ron Paul's demise is a foregone conclusion, I think. I'm personally a little worried about Romney now. And I'm only worried about Romney because I'm worried about Obama. If Obama's going to be a one term president, I want a President Romney.
