Romney, Santorum to split Michigan’s delegates

As a result, Romney wins 21 delegates from the congressional district results, according to results posted by the Michigan Republican Party,
but only 14 of those delegates will be allowed to vote at the national
convention because the state broke national GOP rules by moving its
primary before the Super Tuesday contests next week.

Santorum wins 18 delegates from the congressional districts, but only 12
of those people will be able to vote at the national convention.

Veteran Rep. David Dreier, one of California’s most influential
Republicans in Congress, announced Wednesday that he won’t be running
for reelection, perhaps the biggest casualty of the state’s first-ever
citizens-drawn political map, which cast him into a politically
inhospitable district.
Dreier is the sixth California House member to announce his
retirement when his term expires, further shaking up a delegation that
has built up clout on Capitol Hill because of its stability over the

Michelle Malkin Rips Apart Santorum’s Satan Lovin’ Attackers

Since when is considered bad to not like Satan?
Since Rick Santorum started saying bad things about him. Now Satan seems to be the Democrat’s biggest ally:

The secular media hounds (as well as GOP rivals) have framed Rick Santorum as a THEOCRAT!
— and they’ll say and do anything to lock him in. He’s a God nut! A GOP
mullah! He’s coming after your birth control! He “plays” with dead
babies! He’s obliterating the wall between church and state! Run for your lives!
While the headlines trumpet Santorum’s 2008 remarks about Satan
(gasp! a man who believes in God also believes in the devil! shocker!)
and stir up anti-religious bigotry, Santorum has been zeroing in on the
White House messiah’s destructive government policies.

Chris Christie Takes on British Mediocrity, Piers Morgan

When CNN’s Piers Morgan preached that corporations should consider
actions in the national interest over the wants of their “ever-fattening
shareholders,” New Jersey Governor Chris Christie (R) called him out
for “demagoguing” the issue. In an interview that aired Tuesday night,
Morgan suggested that companies like Apple should “take a hit” and bring
a percentage of their jobs back to America from China.

Thomas Sowell Attacks the “Fairness” Fraud

Even if additional tax revenue all went to poor single mothers —
which it will not — the multiple problems of children raised by poor
single mothers would not be cured by throwing money at them. Indeed, the
skyrocketing of unwed motherhood began when government welfare programs
began throwing money at teenage girls who got pregnant.

Children born and raised without fathers are a major problem to
society and to themselves. There is nothing “fair” about increasing the
number of such children.

Sarah Palin Comes to Santorum’s Defense Against Liberal Attacks

“They will attack any conservative who boldly proclaims their faith and
talks about there is good in the world and there’s evil in the world and
that’s what Rick Santorum was talking about. And this was a speech that
he gave back in 2008 where he named evil as Satan. And for these
lame-stream media characters to get all wee-weed up about that, first
you have to ask yourself, ‘Have they ever attended a Sunday school class
even? Have they never heard of this terminology before?” And that’s why
they got so, you know, just whacked out about the speech,” Sarah Palin
told Sean Hannity on FOX News tonight.
