The Teddy Bear Is Angry

The Teddy Bear Is Angry

01/05/12 10:32AM

We feel like we've been saying this for a while now... but this time we mean it: Newt Gingrich has really, really, NOW, taken the gloves off. The Teddy Bear is Angry. As Stephen Colbert put it last night, he looks like he wants to stick a sharp screw driver into Mitt Romney's lung.And why wouldn't he? After weeks of negative attacks against Gingrich, and a new CNN/ORC poll today showing Romney's electability at a whopping 65% with Gingrich down to 9%. But the Teddy Bear (again) blames the media for what is an actual, legitimate poll. read more

Searching for the Soul

01/04/12 03:08PM

The near three-way split in Iowa may just prove to be less about the differences between Romney, Santorum and Paul - more about the deep divisions between the Party. It will come down to a battle for the soul of the Republican Party. read more

"Unbelievably Ambiguous"

"Unbelievably Ambiguous"

01/04/12 08:23AM

"Unbelievably Ambiguous"That's what Jon Huntsman, in an interview on Morning Joe, called the results in Iowa. An assessment given from someone who wasn't in the state, but watching from his seat in New Hampshire. New Hampshire, where Huntsman's hoping to pull off a Santorum-like victory... a slow steady-eddie, door-to-door campaign to something better than 7th place.Speaking of that "victory" in Iowa (and losing by 8 votes can still be called a victory) - is it actually a negative for the Republican establishment? A fractured GOP seems to be the only clear thing to come out of the caucus. read more
