Rick Santorum’s Clueless Message Stomps Mitt Romney’s Electability

Santorum surges in GOP races. My local newspaper headline pretty much captured the flavor of yesterday’s round of two Republican Presidential caucuses and one non-binding primary.

Obama Shines While Jabbing Birthers and Palin at WH Correspondents Dinner

However his best material was reserved for the birthers and Sarah Palin. For the birthers he joked that his popularity still remains high in his, “home country,” and he jabbed at Palin with a comment about, “socialized media.”
