Caucus news ...
"Perfect hair" Mitt Romney won Nevada for the Republican caucus. Not surprising since he was the only guy campaign there and the state is chock full of Mormons.
I kind of feel bad for him because he and I both know that he looks like a president straight out of central casting, yet he's overwhelmingly unpopular with a segment of the electorate. I mean, look at him. He should be starring in a presidential drama on ABC tonight. He knows that if it weren't for the fact that he's Mormon and a centrist in a hardcore Republican, Christian fundamentalist race, Republicans would love him to death. He's a free trade capitalist with Libertarian under-pinnings and executive experience. That used to be political gold.
But even if he weren't a Mormon he'd still have to deal with the flip flopping that makes him look like an political ideology whore. I mean, they accused John Kerry of flip-flopping but Romney likes tri-political. He'll try anything. He take it both ways. He's bi-curious in the world of political discourse. Changing his affiliations in which ever direction the political winds are blowing. Enjoy the win while it lasts.
