Egos On Parade

The New Hampshire primary is over and three candidates jumped into the lead, Romney, Paul and that third place guy, what's his name. With 95% of the polls reporting, the tally is:

Romney 39.4%
Paul 22.8%
Huntsman 16.8%

The also rans:

Gingrich 9.4%
Santorum 9.3%
Perry 0.7%
Bachmann 0.1%

The results prompted this ego smashing tidbit from the Paul camp:

MANCHESTER, New Hampshire—Rep. Ron Paul's campaign called on the rest of the Republican field to drop out of the race and unite behind him in order to defeat Mitt Romney.

“We urge Ron Paul’s opponents who have been unsuccessfully trying to be the conservative alternative to Mitt Romney to unite by getting out of the race and uniting behind Paul’s candidacy,” campaign chair Jesse Benton said in a statement.

Since Bachmann has already bowed out, the remaining three also-rans will now demonstrate how egos can drive people over the edge to make really stupid comments and do really strange things.

Be prepared for statements now about how it's Florida and South Carolina are the really important places to watch, not itty-bitty New Hampshire or that farmer-infested corn belt, Iowa, way out there in flyover country.

According to the undercover Progressives, Israeli firsters and neocons at FOX news, Ron Paul is totally, completely, absolutely and positively unelectable.

Seems a lot of Americans disagree.

It will be fun watching the likes of Shepard Smith, Bill O'Reilly and Sean Hannity lurch into high gear in their dismally predictable attacks against Ron Paul.

At least we can expect Mz. Washington insider, Catherine Herridge, to be a bit more subtle with her attacks than the three big mouths named above.

Perhaps Neil Cavuto will buck the trend and at the very least, remain neutral.

With the possible exception of Ron Paul, it doesn't really matter who you vote for at this point, you are going to get the same thing: Communist on the left or Catholic on the "right", Rome still wins.
