Have you been liking the intramural with so many lies, distortions, etc. I knew that the persona Newt Gingrich used in South Carolina (to stir up racism) to win would not be used in Florida. WOULD THE REAL NEWT GINGRICH PLEASE STAND UP (: All morning pundits have been saying that Romney will win. (:
Sarah Palin said she will be saying good things about ALL THE CANDIDATES.
“GINGRICH’S SUPER PACS TOTALLY UNSUPER – Running [TODAY]..in Roll Call from Eliza Newlin Carney: “In tomorrow’s paper, Roll Call’s Eliza Newlin Carney reports on Newt Gingrich‘s less-than-Super PACs. Super PACs backing Newt Gingrich have dominated media coverage of the GOPFlorida primary that will be decided [Tuesday], but their impact is starting to look less than super. Two pro-Gingrich super PACs appear to have dropped out altogether. The biggest Gingrich-friendly super PAC spent $6 million in Florida backing the former Speaker, but a big chunk of it went into a ground operation that some argue was too ambitious for an independent group. The role of super PACs in Florida may underscore the limits to how much can be accomplished on the presidential campaign trail by such unrestricted groups, some political observers say. The landmark Supreme Court decision Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission freed up these groups to raise big money quickly. But super PAC organizers must keep candidates at arm’s length, making it harder to round-up volunteers and turn out voters in the field.” [Huffington Post]
“SENATE ADVANCES ‘LET’S QUIT BEING DIRTBAGS’ BILL – Mike McAuliff: “The Senate advanced a bill Monday that aims to curb potential insider trading by Congress. The Stop Trading on Congressional Knowledge Act, or STOCK Act, easily passed a procedural vote 93 to 2, clearing the way for a debate and amendment process that insiders expect will end with passage of the measure by the end of the week. The measure would require members of Congress and higher ranking staffers and federal employees to specifically abide by insider trading rules that apply to everyone, with the added protection of requiring members of Congress and their top aides to reports significant financial transactions within 30 days.” [Huffington Post]

Auction 2012: 30 Million Jobs and the Election
This week, I’m pleased to bring you an important discussion about what we should be talking about this election season. Corruption. The Huffington Post, the Dylan Ratigan Show, and United Republic will be holding a weeklong series on the costs of our bought government. We’ll look into corruption in banking, energy, health care, trade, and education. We’ll show you how much corruption is costing you, personally. And we’ll trace the money behind it all.
Why are we doing this? Because this is what American elections should be about, not SuperPACs and trivia. During the financial crisis, a US senator asked me, “does the government regulate Wall Street, or does Wall Street, with their billions and billions of dollars, regulate the government through lobbying and campaign financing?” This question is at the root of what ails us as a nation… READ ENTIRE ARTICLE .
“A team of nuclear inspectors from the U.N. watchdog International Atomic Energy Agency landed in Iran Sunday over allegations that the country was trying to develop nuclear weapons. The IAEA said the six-member team, which includes chief inspector Herman Nackaerts, will be there until Tuesday. Such a mission by a senior team is unusual, pointing to the seriousness of the concerns. The agency said in November that it could not verify whether the Iranian nuclear program was peaceful.” [THE DAILY BEAST]
