You knew it was going to start.

The GOP establishment is getting antsy about Mitt Romney and if he does manage to lose Michigan – well, he is done.

A prominent Republican senator just told me that if Romney can’t win in Michigan, the Republican Party needs to go back to the drawing board and convince somebody new to get into the race.

“If Romney cannot win Michigan, we need a new candidate,” said the senator, who has not endorsed anyone and requested anonymity.

The senator believes Romney will ultimately win in Michigan but says he will publicly call for the party to find a new candidate if he does not.

“We’d get killed,” the senator said if Romney manages to win the nomination after he failed to win the state in which he grew up.

“He’d be too damaged,” he said.  “If he can’t even win in Michigan, where his family is from, where he grew up.”

What about Rick Santorum?

“He’d lose 35 states,” the senator said, predicting the same fate for Newt Gingrich.

And, who would the new candidate be?

Jeb Bush, said this Senator.

I, frankly, think it will be Indiana Governor Mitch Daniels or Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal – or even Wisconsin Congressman Paul Ryan.

If the GOP wants to win against President Obama, they had better hope Santorum beats Romney in Michigan.

President 2012 Video: Rick Santorum Mega-Donor Foster Freiss and Aspirin Between Your Knees

Posted Posted in Foster Freiss, President 2012, Rick Santorum

Well, I already said that Rick Santorum was way out of the mainstream with his own views on contraception.

His mega-donor Sugar Daddy, Foster Friess confirms it.

Republican presidential candidate Rick Santorum’s big mega-donor kicked up a controversy over the issue of contraception today when he urged a return to the good old days when gals had a simple solution for it: aspirin between the knees.

We’re not kidding.

Wealthy entreprenuer Foster Freiss, who’s backed Santorum’s Super-PAC, made the statements to MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell today, after being asked if his candidate has expressed some extremist views on contraception.

He appeared to express wonder that women even have to worry about the issue of paying for contraception these days, Politico reports. “On this contraceptive thing, my Gosh it’s such [sic] inexpensive,” he added. “You know, back in my days, they used Bayer aspirin for contraception. The gals put it between their knees, and it wasn’t that costly.”

Good grief….this entire discussion is killing the GOP.

Mr. Freiss should get back in his time machine and disappear – as should Rick Santorum.

SNL Parodies of Clint Eastwood’s Half Time in America Are Really Stupid

Posted Posted in NBC, Newt Gingrich, Rick Santorum, Saturday Night Live
The first one below is for the third quarter and calls Rick Santorum a “PUSSY” – real mature NBC.

This second one is for the fourth quarter and talks about Newt Gingrich having a big head = more name calling.

The third one, I won’t even bother, since it is just nonsense.

I understand this is supposed to be comedy, but this exercise like many over there at NBC just seem to be simple name calling of Republican POLS. Where is your parody of Obama, Lorne?

Go figure….
