Predictions: Super Tuesday

Time to ship the Santorum Surge to the Smithsonian’s collection of Unfortunate Metaphors

With Eric Cantor, Tom Coburn and John Ashcroft’s endorsements, Barbara Bush making robocalls and the Drudge Report ignoring the biggest story of the campaign, the GOP establishment is determined to make Super Tuesday Mitt Romney’s big night. And it will probably work.

I think the story of the night will be that Rick Santorum would have won Ohio if he’d been on the ballot all over the state. He’s not. Instead, Mitt will take most of the delegates and Gingrich will do second best.…

Peter Gabriel hammers Rush Limbaugh for using his music during the attack on Sandra Fluke

Sledge!

Peter Gabriel has learned that it was his song “Sledgehammer” that was being played during the segment of Rush Limbaugh’s Hate Show where he said that women like Sandra Fluke who get their contraceptives paid for by their insurance company should film themselves having sex and put it on the internet.

Peter Gabriel is not amused. He issued this statement on Monday afternoon on his Facebook page:

Peter was appalled to learn that his music was linked to Rush Limbaugh’s extraordinary attack on Sandra Flute.

Santorum continues fight for that one Michigan delegate – UPDATED

Dele-gate

Honestly, I never thought that Michigan GOP Primary Clown Show™ would still be the gift to Democrats that keeps on giving a week later but, well, it is.

Though the state’s primary was almost a week ago, the Rick Santorum campaign is continuing to dispute the primary’s results. The campaign has taken their fight over the way the Michigan Republican Party apportioned two of the state’s at-large delegates to the Republican National Committee.The campaign is also organizing a rally to be held later today in front of the Michigan Republican headquarters in Lansing. Santorum supporters will call on Michigan GOP leaders to reconsider their decision to award both the party’s statewide delegates to Mitt Romney.

Nolan Finley is shocked – SHOCKED! – that union members support President Obama

It’s just SHOCKING!

Nolan Finley, editorial page editor of The Detroit News is positively astonished that the UAW and other unions will be supporting President Obama’s reelection campaign.

Now we know how United Auto Workers President Bob King will repay Barack Obama for holding the union harmless from the Detroit automakers’ bankruptcy: He’ll provide the ground troops for the president’s class war.

The Daily Caller blog says it found evidence that King and the UAW are behind the “99 Percent Spring,” which aims to train and deploy 100,000 Americans for “non-violent direct action” in the months leading up to November’s presidential election.

LOLGOP Winner: Rush Limbaugh

You’re sorry

Congratulations to Rush Limbaugh, winner of the first LOLGOP.

Rush loves attention. But he may have overdosed this week.

You know that last week Rush spent three shows calling law student Sandra Fluke a “slut” and a “prostitute” because Ms. Fluke chose to assert in public that birth control is part of basic women’s health care.

The idea of a young woman with a healthy, unashamed sex life apparently drove Rush insane. He ranted and raved about how he was paying for this woman’s pleasure betraying his obliviousness at how both insurance and reproduction work. (No, Rush. You don’t need extra birth control for more sex.…

Proflowers.com pulls its ads from Rush Limbaugh’s hate show

It’s working

Proflowers.com just posted this on their Facebook page:

PROFLOWERS STATEMENT
At ProFlowers, our mission is to delight our customers with fresh and long lasting flowers, and that is our singular focus each and every day. We do not base our advertising decisions to align with any particular political view or opinion as our employees and customers are as diverse as the USA. Mr. Limbaugh’s recent comments went beyond political discourse to a personal attack and do not reflect our values as a company. As such, ProFlowers has suspended advertising on The Rush Limbaugh radio program.

I would hope that they would take the “susp” out of this statement and make it a firm “ProFlowers has ended advertising on The Rush Limbaugh radio program.”

Still, it’s a solid step in the right direction.…
