Tonight, one night only, it’s a Teaparty slugfest in the heart of the Confederacy. First up, Willard Mittens Romney the Heretic, standing in the moderately right corner stuffing grits into his smiling, capped maw threatening his oh-so-tight custom embroidered Neiman Marcus cycling trunks that flash whatever color needed to distract any supporter nearby. In the far right corner, wearing the flashy bright red trunks with spandex cumberwaistband, good ole southern homeboy Newt-of-three-wives-Gingrich, last seen leading one set of crackers by a hair in Bama. And in the extreme right corner, wearing the very dull red trunks, Frothy Rick Santorum, anxious to misinterpret the results and declare himself the Kommander of the Republic of Gilead.
I’ll be following the hot man on pundit action here and on Twitter @SAndrewDKos staying on top of every angle, thanks to a handful of legally prescribed narcotic painkillers, benzodiazepines, cortical steroids all washed down by a Red Bull, followed by half a bottle of delicious Cognac enjoyed throughout the evening’s events thanks to a full pack of unfiltered Marlboro reds. Or I might I start cold calling old girlfriend’s out of the blue with that killer, irresistible slurred line “Hey …so… whatya doin? You at home?”
If Romney wins both Alabama and Mississippi, I think it’s a knock-out punch. Not that Santorum or Gingrich will necessarily fold and go home. After all, there’s still some megabucks to be fleeced! If Romney loses one, I think he still wins the narrative. If he loses both, it’ll spell more weeks of trouble and money for Mittens. We’ll know soon, polls close at the top of the hour.
