Randi Rhodes: Showing Weakness

Happy Leap Day! Don’t forget to set your calendars back 24 hours. This is a day that only happens every four years, and by that, I don’t mean a good day for Mitt Romney. Because, let’s face it, it’s not that good of a day for Mitt Romney. The only thing less impressive than Mitt Romney’s victory last night is the quality of his opponent. Hey, Mitt, you won Michigan! Whew! Now that that’s over, you can drag out that BMW that you’ve been hiding in the garage.

Oddly, Mitt didn’t mention the height of the trees during his victory speech. But I can’t wait to find out what lines he has ready for the Super Tuesday states: “I love Tennessee! All your varmints are just the right size.” Mitt said “We didn’t win by a lot, but we won by enough. And that’s all that counts.” Well, Mitt, you won by enough to win, but not by enough to be considered a winner. Meanwhile, Rick Santorum told his crowd, “a month ago they didn’t know who we are. They do now.” Yeah, Rick. That’s why you didn’t win. If Rick Santorum had gone into hiding for the past week, he probably would have won Michigan.

Yesterday, Mitt Romney said he’s not willing to “set his hair on fire” to excite the base. Mitt, so far you’ve been willing to lie, cheat, steal, and abandon every belief you ever held to excite the base. At this point, setting fire to your hair would be one of the less disgusting things you’ve done. Of all people to talk about setting your hair on fire! If you look up the word “pander” in the dictionary, you see a picture of Mitt Romney... with his hair on fire.

I think Rick Santorum might be trying to walk back some of his “college is bad” comments. Who in the Rick Santorum campaign came up with that whole “college is for snobs” approach? You know it was somebody with a degree in political science and a masters in public relations. Rick is also backing away from his “throw up” comments. Rick said “I wish I had that particular line back.” Sorry, Rick. You can’t put toothpaste back in the tube, and you can’t put vomit back where it came from... unless you’re a dog.
