Lou Dobbs jumps the shark (again). Is Lou jealous that the Lorax's orange skin looks better than Lou's orange hair?

This is so beautifully meta: Santorum's "Rombo" ad ends with Romney smearing himself with a Santorum-like substance.

The "Rombo" ad aims to take advantage of social media to go around the money barriers in this primary race. It's strategic gold.

I support ~90% of the POTUS' policies, but this is in the 10%. Credit to Glenn Greenwald for hammering on this issue http://www.salon.com/2012/02/08/repulsive_progressive_hypocrisy/singleton/

Brilliant: "When you harvest as much content as we do, there are bound to be some fatalities," Huffington said. "That's just part of the job."

My take: to paraphrase Dr. King, the arc of the internet bends towards freedom.

"Two Polls Show a Santorum Surge" Apparently polling really IS a dirty business...
