This year's commercials ranged from a close-up shot of an extended kiss between a nerd and a supermodel to a modern riff on the classic 'lady washing a soapy car,' to two female actors sensually dancing on poles to plug their sitcom. And then there was the halftime show.

The 2012 Speculatron Weekly Roundup For March 9, 2012 | Jason Linkins | Posted 05.09.2012 | Politics

Bill Kristol says it's just getting started. Sarah Palin says all bets are off. Other GOP luminaries say that so far, what they've seen has been "a collective yawn." What are they talking about? The GOP race for the 2012 presidential nomination, that's what. And all of these assessments have been handed down from on high in the wake of Super Tuesday's results. But wasn't Super Tuesday a pretty unequivocal win for Mitt Romney, leaving him as the only candidate with a path to the nomination that doesn't require a series of miraculous events?

Santorum's Sweater Vests Leave Republicans in the Cold

While it is a conservative way to dress, thanks to the peripatetic Mr. Santorum, said attire has now become synonymous with a level of conservatism that is far beyond my comfort zone and is forcing me to reconsider how to best stay warm while not being branded intolerant.

Mitt is compelling and will be the nominee, but the lesson he should learn is that there is no replacement for getting personal with a voter. He will need to know that going into a general election.

The Media Having Hard Time Accepting The Fact That Romney Won Last Night | Jason Linkins | Posted 05.07.2012 | Media

Because the primary process is designed to be elongated, and because the media loves exciting storylines, a night where Mitt Romney went out and did everything he was supposed to do has been turned into a Pyrrhic victory for Rick Santorun and Newt Gingrich, two guys who split a smaller portion of delegates between the two of them, underperformed throughout the night, and who have big limitations on their campaign infrastructure going forward. What everyone should be saying is that we now have a race between one guy who could conceivably notch the nomination and three guys who might delay him. Instead, we're hearing that Romney could not deliver the "knockout punch" in a contest that ended up a "Republican Split Decision" and that it's actually Romney who has "no clear path to victory."

Republican women may have flirted with Rick Santorum, but they're now less interested in going all the way. In the early contests, Santorum did better with women than with men. Now, his early strength with women has become a weakness.

Had Romney or Santorum won Ohio by a landslide vote, the winner could have made the case that he is the best candidate to take on Obama. But that argument, for Romney, is becoming harder to win.
