hawkdriver on March 12, 2012 at 9:51 AM

No SMOD? Dammit.

OhioCoastie on March 12, 2012 at 9:54 AM

Cheese grits with a side of bacon. Yummmm

I love grits.

hawkdriver on March 12, 2012 at 9:51 AM

Me too. They give some texture to the half-stick of butter.

RBMN on March 12, 2012 at 9:58 AM

“This isn’t a mathematical formula,” Santorum said on one Sunday morning show today.

really? lol… maybe Rick is always the last to figure it out I guess…

gatorboy on March 12, 2012 at 9:59 AM

Dessum,grits er good.

Bmore on March 12, 2012 at 10:00 AM

WELL, BUTTER MY BISCUIT!

The wording in this survey could use some editing. When you offer your personal guess about who is likely to be the nominee, it isn’t done “objectively.” (I know what they want to say, but can’t think of the right way to say it.)

What’s up with a poll that only lists two genders? What a bunch of sexist homophobes.

platypus on March 12, 2012 at 10:05 AM

Clearly should be: a) Your gender? b) Your preferred gender?

Dextrous on March 12, 2012 at 10:10 AM

As Darth Vader would say (post creator screwing up the series):

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!

Jailbreak on March 12, 2012 at 10:12 AM

Where is SMOD?

WhatNot on March 12, 2012 at 10:13 AM

Ruh-Roh!

Santorum is now OFFICIALLY THE SKUNK AT THE GARDEN PARTY:

Zeke Miller of Buzzfeed has obtained an internal memo to be circulated around the Santorum campaign today with the following line:

Majority Needed for Romney, Not for Santorum

Mitt Romney must have a majority on the first ballot in order to win the nomination because he will perform worse on subsequent ballots as grassroots conservative delegates decide to back the more conservative candidate. Subsequently, Santorum only needs to be relatively close on the initial ballot in order to win on a later ballot as Romney’s support erodes.

Translation: our only hope is to deny Romney the win, and hope that convention delegates gradually come around to us.

We’ve been saying this ever since Super Tuesday, but at least there is some sign that the Santorum campaign is grappling with this reality.

Santorum Concedes He Can’t Win the Nomination Outright

The “submit” button is sticky or something.

Dextrous on March 12, 2012 at 10:10 AM

heh … thanks I needed to smile …..

conservative tarheel on March 12, 2012 at 10:20 AM

I was sooo looking forward to the lawn gnome …… my favorite ….

conservative tarheel on March 12, 2012 at 10:21 AM

Grits with butter, cheddar cheese, salt and lots of pepper.
Maybe some sausage broken up in it on occasion.
Mmmm.

justltl on March 12, 2012 at 10:23 AM

How about a regret question? Which candidate do you regret most dropping out or not running? At least choosing would be easier for me. The only one I enjoy answering is the vp question.

jazzuscounty on March 12, 2012 at 10:27 AM

I’ll have the grits with my scrapple’n’bacon’n’eggs please.

Oh, heck, just throw it all together and fry up the grits, too.

Now I’m getting hungry…

ajacksonian on March 12, 2012 at 10:31 AM

Man, those grits look scrumptious. Ahhhh eeeeeee, I guarantee.

Don’t forget the red-eye gravy.

msupertas on March 12, 2012 at 10:33 AM

Nom!

Really, southerners should adopt the word ‘nom’ as it just sounds right. LOLcats shouldn’t have all the fun.

ajacksonian on March 12, 2012 at 10:38 AM

If newt loses al and ms he needs to wake up and smell the coffee with his grits. He could have organized better and raised more money like Mitt do stop whining about it. I was a Newt fan but enough already. If Mitt has 30% because he outspent then why does Santorum have 30%? After Tues if the Math doesnt work out Santorum should leave too. A brokered convention 60 days from the election is a loser. We need to start hammering Obama on the deficit, gas prices, unemployment, the housing market ect… And stop letting dems drive the conversation with distractions over contraception ect… Its the economy

ldbgcoleman on March 12, 2012 at 10:43 AM

Had to go with Mitt in Hawaii…have they ever had a conservative on that island?

KOOLAID2 on March 12, 2012 at 10:48 AM

Me too. They give some texture to the half-stick of butter.

RBMN on March 12, 2012 at 9:58 AM

lol

mountainaires on March 12, 2012 at 10:16 AM

Inventing facts from articles again I see. Your Tennessee DailyKOS memo was about as close to lying as you can get being creative with cut and pasting two separate stories.

I do note your efforts haven’t waned a bit. I’d imagine most people would take it that you’re still a little nervous?

hawkdriver on March 12, 2012 at 10:53 AM

Shrimp and Grits from City Grocery in Oxford. MS. Nothing better!

jbh45 on March 12, 2012 at 10:53 AM

I love grits, too, even though I’ve never lived in the south.

I use original, slow-cooking and usually top them with butter & Tony Chachere’s Salt-Free Creole spice mix.

Siddhartha Vicious on March 12, 2012 at 10:53 AM

Where’s the survey?

annoyinglittletwerp on March 12, 2012 at 10:53 AM

I want a grits subsidy!

KS Rex on March 12, 2012 at 11:03 AM

Patrick, it took forever to submit the survey. Apologies if I clicked it too many times, while waiting.

More suggestions:

Grits vs Ham Sandwich

Just for Chicago voters:

Lawn Gnome Reagan vs Hurricane Ditka

Fallon on March 12, 2012 at 11:15 AM

I hope this is the last of these surveys, and the next one focuses on who Mitt’s Veep choice should be.

Buy Danish on March 12, 2012 at 11:16 AM

Marxists + Mormons = Romney by 50+ pts in the state that inflicted the Apologizer-in-Chief on the rest of us.

It’s nice for a vacation and all, but can we kick Hawaii out of the Union?

sauldalinsky on March 12, 2012 at 12:20 PM

You grit lovers obviously aren’t southern….the ticket is taking your cheese grits with some sausage patties and scrammbled eggs and mixing it up in a mashed up mess. Don’t knock it till you try it.

brhoton on March 12, 2012 at 12:24 PM

Second-day grits made into patties, fried in butter and served with maple or blueberry syrup or wildflower honey, sausage on the side. Darn, now I’m hungry

sandspur on March 12, 2012 at 12:42 PM

sauldalinsky on March 12, 2012 at 12:20 PM

I know a few Marines in Hawaii who would love to meet you and your wimp candidate.

Neither of you probably knows the inside of a boot let alone a boot camp.

IlikedAUH2O on March 12, 2012 at 12:55 PM

The best thing about a Grit nomination is the clear debate and choice between the candidates.

Loved the guy till he proved that he couldn’t handle huge challenges like making the ballot in Virginia. Or keeping his troops happy.

IlikedAUH2O on March 12, 2012 at 1:00 PM

That’s a pic of improperly prepared grits. Looks like stucco. I’m sure the Quaker Oats crowd would enjoy it.

Where’s the shrimp?

tuffy on March 12, 2012 at 3:44 PM

I would like to see the answers broken down by age groups.

Daikokuco on March 12, 2012 at 4:02 PM

Math doesn’t add up, for either.

The fat lady is dead asleep.
