    Voted in Alabama for the first time today. After considering Santorum & Gingrich the last couple of months I finally settled in Santorum. My oldest Son also voted for the first time ever today. He said he voted for Gingrich. Will be interesting to see who takes this state.

    Very early returns have Santorum up by several % in both states.

    Gingrich second with Romney breathing down his neck.

    Pretty impressive when you consider that Santorum and Gingrich have relatively little funds and Romney is again throwing big bucks against them in another negative blitz.

    Santorum seems to connect with people.

    I don't think Romney's comment yesterday went over big. "I consider myself a Southerner. I like grits and things."

    It was painful watching him. In a way I feel sorry for him with his feeble attempts to connect. I'm sure the folks down there thought he was making fun of them.

    That's almost what our friends in Scottsboro, Alabama said - that he sounded like he was talking down to them. They saw that remark on Fox and it decided their vote, from what they told my wife. Liking grits wasn't a deal breaker, the "and things" part ticked them off.

    Strange things are happening to him, indeed.

    I'll say it right now.

    Get ready for a brokered convention.

    Santorum will still after tonights win need around 70% of all remaining delegates. Romney will need about 55%-60% now.

    We will likely see a brokered convention. Santorum is not their favorite. Romney is.

    It was silly and contrived. His handlers should have known that he would fail. He should have tried it out on them first and then the strategy discarded. Perhaps he did rehearse and his handlers are as out of touch as he?

    That's what I'm expecting. Looks like Santorum takes both states, Gingrich 2nd and Romney 3rd. Paul was on the ballot too.

    They want Romney, and they're bound and determined to have Romney. I think Romney was promised the nomination back in 2008. No way to prove it, of course.
