The Village is panicking

They've declared Mitt Romney the winner in Michigan despite the fact that Rick Santorum picked up just as many delegates as the Romneybot did. Think about that -- the Romneybot was created and lived its childhood in Michigan, yet familiarity truly *did* breed contempt, Michigan voters gave Romney a slight plurality (3%!!!) but he didn't even manage to break the 50% barrier.

In other words, in Michigan more than half of the Republican voters won't vote for Romney. Even in Arizona, where Romney was the clear winner, more than half of the Republican voters didn't vote for Romney. In fact, Romney has *never* broken the 50% mark.

Unless the Romneybot's handlers can dig up better programmers to implement the "charisma", "likability", and "personality" subroutines in its programming, the chances of The Romney winning in November are similar to the chances of The Romney winning American Idol. It could happen, but only if President Obama got caught in bed with a dead girl or a live boy. Just sayin' ;).

  1. To be fair, a whole lot of Democrats voted in the Republican primary in Michigan. Santorum even robocalled me with a "vote for me to send Romney a message" message. I couldnt do it though so I voted for Paul. Anyways, it is possible that Romney got 50%+ of the Republican vote, there really is no way of knowing.

  2. When Breitbart's Obama-at-college tapes get out, it'll be a different story!
