So, the Iowa caucus happened and it looks like they went with spinelessness and an side order of bigotry; that is, Romney and Santorum (24%) were virtually tied for first. And I guess Perry (10%) and Bachmann (5%) thought that they’d do better, because they’re so disappointed that they’re both dropping out of the race. Ron Paul (21%) finished in third (but was in the lead early on in the entrance polling because his nutty fanatics always show up early) and the Newt (Gingrich, that is) finished in fourth (13%). Newt Gingrich seems pretty disappointed with his performance and bitter at Romney for all the negative ads that have been thrown his way. I wouldn’t be too surprised to see him drop out after the next few states, but I doubt he’ll give his support to Romney easily, if at all. Oh, and don’t forget that Huntsman still exists: he finished in dead last (1%) and is still betting on a good showing in New Hampshire.
There, now you don’t have to watch the ridiculousness that CNN calls “political news coverage”. Yes, you can thank me now.
*Edit: So it looks like Rick Perry isn’t going to drop out just yet(?). I’m not sure the guy knows how presidential campaigns work.
