The American people are waiting for the primaries to end and for the GOP convention to finally select the Republican presidential Candidate. After such a grueling, stretched out, abrasive campaign, they would like to believe that "dos iz alts" -- "that's all there is."

Unlike a 13-episode arc that can be mercifully cancelled when the audience clicks away, we are obligated to suffer through the soap opera plot twists and nefarious characterizations of the characters all the way up to that seemingly ever-distant date in November.

Memo From a Political Insider

Romney's problem is still that he's Romney. Don't expect better than third out of him in Iowa. The reasons are many and manifest and have been talked about and written about until they are likely carved into tablets of jade somewhere. As for Newt, the polls in Iowa and elsewhere have been friendly to him but the voters in Iowa will be less magnanimous. They aren't likely to be as forgiving as the analysts think. Ron Paul is the guy who could end up as the Mike Huckabee of 2008. He might even do considerably better throughout the spring. Where does this leave us? We could go all the way through Super Tuesday in the first week of March and still not know who will be the nominee of the Republican Party.

Back in Newt's heyday, Doonesbury portrayed Gingrich as a lit bomb with a short fuse. Right and Left seem to be in agreement on his resemblance to trinitrotoluene (or "Newtroglycerine"?). Which leaves only one key question: When will this "Newtsplosion" take place?

Personally, I thought we had this covered in his wedding vows, but maybe he had his fingers crossed at the altar so it didn't really count?

My now-deceased parents immigrated here from Canada to seek better opportunities and my Mom would cry every time she heard The Star Spangled Banner. I'm glad she's not here to witness a potential loony tune takeover of our promised land.
