So where are we with about 24 hours to go until the South Carolina Republican primary? Yesterday we learned that 1) Iowa Republicans can’t find some of the ballots and so they can’t certify the results (or maybe they can – the Chairman can’t decide), but it looks like Rick Santorum beat Mitt Romney. 2) That Newt wanted to stay married to Marianne while having an on-going affair with Callista. 3) Rick Perry left the race and endorsed Gingrich. 4) Gingrich is leading the the South Carolina polls. Makes my head spin!
If you are a conservative with what are generally referred to as family values who do you support? Do you vote for Santorum and let Romney have the nomination or do you hold your nose and vote for Gingrich? Speaking of noses, don’t let Newt pinch yours!

What is that all about?
Oh, and Mitt has not lived in Washington but has lived on the streets. This from Politico
But the combination of the tax return issue, reports that his former firm parked assets in Cayman tax shelters and his own rhetorical missteps is beginning to paint him as a plutocrat rather than “someone who’s lived in the real streets of America,” as he described himself at Thursday’s debate.
Don’t know about you, but I think this is the best reality show on TV!
