On Wednesday, March 21st, John Fugelsang, political comedian, was interviewing Romney Communications Director Eric Fehrnstrom on CNN. John asked Eric, “Is there a concern that pressure from Santorum and Gingrich might force the governor to tack so far to the right that it would hurt him with moderate voters in the general election?”
Well, here it is. Super Tuesday has finally arrived. This has been one of the most interesting primaries in history. I often feel as though I am watching an old reel of The Three Stooges, while at the same time trying to decide which person would best fill the shoes as POTUS. And boy, oh boy… am I having a tough time with that one. I keep having this visual scene playing in my head that I just cannot shake….
Rachel Maddow illustrates the fact that Florida Republicans are about to vote Mitt Romney who is still making money off of laying off people in the state.
Two federal court rulings in 2010 paved the way for the ascent of “super PACs,” political action committees that can raise and spend unlimited amounts of money on political races, as long as they don’t coordinate with a specific candidate. And so far, they’re spending heavily on the Republican race. No surprise there. This app, part of ProPublica’s long-term investigation into “dark money,” keeps track of where super PACs are spending their cash to influence the presidential race.

It was a tough day at work… tough day at work (imagine Rodney Dangerfield’s voice over). Ergo… tired. Brain dead. Brain synapsis is in low gear. I happened to bounce over to twitter for a peek and saw this first tweet I have listed below appear, and thought, “Hmmmm… let’s have a little bit of fun and find some humorous tweets on twit… I mean, Mitt.
Former regular Tina Fey returned to host Saturday Night Live for the third time Saturday and, in one of the evening’s highlights, brought back her Emmy-winning Sarah Palin impersonation during a sketch titled “GOP Debate.”
In the segment, Fey, dressed in Palin’s iconic red suit, squares off against other undeclared 2012 Republican presidential candidates, including Mitt Romney, Newt Gingrich, Michele Bachmann, Jimmy McMillan and Donald Trump. The debate is hosted by Fox News personality Shepard Smith, played cheekily by Bill Hader.
At the opening of her speech, Fey announces, “First I want to acknowledge that this week we finally vanquished one of the world’s great villains, and I for one am thrilled to say good riddance to Katie Couric!”
When asked if she has anything new to offer the American people, Fey responds winningly that she plans to film a cameo in Hangover 3 in the Middle East and has purchased Rosetta Stone English.
Fellow former SNL cast member Darrell Hammond also drew laughs for his impression of the embattled Trump, which included a reference to Osama bin Laden’s recent death: “Osama, boom! You’re fired!”
