But Newt's March to the Sea has fallen into a sinkhole. With the Santorum wins in Alabama and Mississippi, he's now on Newt's flanks going into Louisiana. It's game on for Rick Santorum.
Newt Gingrich shows no signs of dropping out of the race. Whether he does or not, he has about run out of Southern states he can win. Forget Louisiana, those Cajuns are Catholic and will likely vote for Santorum. Forget Texas, it will vote its pocketbook and that's not $2.50 gasoline. There's Arkansas and Kentucky coming up on May 22, but that's more than two months away. The last remotely realistic chance for Newt Gingrich just disappeared into that Alabama and Mississippi sinkhole.
"Who is getting the biscuits tonight?" That's the question put by Evi L. Bloggerlady. While Mitt Romney lost the main events to Rick Santorum, Mitt picked up more loose change in Hawaii and American Samoa after everyone in the continental U.S. had gone to bed. Biscuits for breakfast taste just as good.
