Day 1168 – The Big Mo

Michelle Obama celebrated Martin Luther King Jr. day by guest starring in Nickelodeon’s iCarly. That’s one day to get some free campaigning.

The Republican candidates are having a Fox debate tonight, which means they won’t be asked to specifically tear into each other on stage. Romney, Santorum and Gingrich are the only real remaining players. Perry is out of gas, but his financial backers are still dumb enough to carry him. Ron Paul never had a chance. Once the closed primaries start, his lack of Democratic and independent support will bring him into the low single digits among Republicans.

The only problem is momentum. Romney is still running in the 30s with no real second place challenger. Neither Gingrich nor Santorum have gathered any real steam. Gingrich has seen the most erosion and Santorum may have the edge with economic conservatives who are also social conservatives.

Stay tuned Saturday.
