Hilarity from one of the commentors:
“Hahaha, you should be worried that Newt won! When he does win, you’ll lose all your credibility as a blogger. Newt Gingrich is going to take us into 2012 with the White House, while Mitt Romney and Ron Paul wallow in their own self-pitiful losses. Obama will go down if Newt wins the Primary. Long live Newt Gingrich. God Bless America!”
I laughed. I’m not worried. Why would I be worried? Was I surprised with South Carolina? Not after Friday, when Gingrich climbed his way out of the cesspit of hatred into the top 2. I said to everyone on Friday within earshot, “Well, Gingrich is blowing his whole load in South Carolina, praying for a win since SC has the reputation of being the state that forecasts the GOP Presidential candidate.”
Doesn’t really change my opinion, though. It just prolonged the battle for the GOP spot, is all. Now we move onto Florida, where a whopping 50 electorate votes are at stake in a winner-takes-all state. Gingrich put everything he had – money, energy and media – into winning South Carolina, while Romney still has a lot of all that for Florida. I think Romney is still going to pull out the win, and Gingrich will sue and complain he was robbed by the system (and then run independently, stealing votes from Romney so Obama wins).
I think for the first time in 70-something years South Carolina will be wrong. And nothing can ruin my reputation if I DON’T HAVE ONE TO START WITH. LOL.
And Megaupload was raided on Friday and Saturday. My advice to future webfile sharing sites? Don’t launder money as a side business. They aren’t going to bust in and take you down on just copyright violations alone. That’s just the icing on the cake with Megaupload. SOPA and PIPA are out – for now – so things are still pretty tense.
