Sarah Palin: I Voted for Newt Gingrich

Super Tuesday was an important day for Republican presidential candidates.  Equal eyes were on Mitt Romney, Rick Santorum and Newt Gingrich.  Romney was expected to win many of the states, which he did, but his victory in Ohio is hardly worth celebrating.  He outspent Santorum there by margin of 12 to 1 and only won by a percentage point.  Gingrich needed to carry Georgia, which he did handily.  But on the eve of Super Tuesday, Newt received support from a major player in the conservative movement.  Sarah Palin announced on Neil Cavuto's show on FOX Business that she voted for Newt in the Alaska primary.  Palin has been rather quiet during the vetting process, but this will certainly help Newt.  The question is, what took her so long?

Clint Eastwood's Chrysler Commercial and the Obama Connection

Af first glance, Chrysler hit a home run with their powerful Super Bowl ad.  They touted many of the principles that make America such a great country.  Those that aren't political will see nothing political with the commercial.  And that's what Chrysler hoped to capitalize on, and they did.  Those that are politically inclined, however, saw Chrysler's ad in a different light.  After letting the commercial marinate for a few days, we now believe the ad was political, but it wasn't Chrysler's intent - it was their ad agency, Wieden+Kennedy.  Two of their top creative professionals are Obama minions that have supported the president and his regime in the past.  Having a background in how this works and who's engaged on the project, this was the doing of liberals running the advertising account.

Mitt Romney's Big WIn in Florida Escalates the Anti-Mitt Race

Mitt Romney dealt a massive blow to Newt Gingrich yesterday in Florida's primary.  The 14-point victory is a big ego boost to the Romney campaign.  It also needs to be noted that the victory was not vindication that Romney is a better candidate when it comes to substance on the issues - he's not.  The win is proof that although nobody likes negative ads, they are effective, whether they're lies or not.  In Florida, Romney spent 94% of his $17 million on negative attack ads on Newt Gingrich to stifle his momentum from the South Carolina victory.  Most of the ads were patently false, as we've noted many times.  We now know that Romney has the will, be it by attacking his opponents, to do anything to win the nomination.  That being said, though, the race is far from over.
