Unless most Republican voters in New Hampshire have been lying to the pollsters, Mitt Romney will be the winner of the first primary of the 2012 season (don't forget -- Iowa has a caucus, not a primary!).  Odds are the results will be in pretty early.  No waiting until the wee hours like [...]

The majority of Sarah Palin watchers seem certain that there is no way, no how the half-term governor from Alaska is going to run  for President in 2012.  Nu-uh, isn't gonna happen, totally sure of it.   She's just going on the road with her motorcycle helmet and personally branded tour bus to stay in the [...]
