Mitt Romney has won the Florida Republican primary by a handy margin, after spending $17 million on an all-out blitzkrieg of negative ads against his main opponent, bloated gasbag and serial adulterer Newt Gingrich. Even though there are still 46 primaries to go, the conventional wisdom is that Romney has pretty much clinched the nomination by now. …Which everybody knew all along, since the candidate who spends the most almost always wins.
Oh, and if you think it’s unfair to depict Mitt
Romney Rmoney with cash bulging from his Brooks Brothers suit, I’ll just point out that he started it.
