Yeah, I know you were probably expecting something about the State of the Union speech, but, c’mon, what is there to say? The state of the union sucks, and Chimpy’s an asshole. There. Done. And to think the idiot talking heads on tv took hours and hours and hours to say that very same thing.
As a resident of Floriduhhhhh, I am quite relieved that the vote was today, as now we won’t be bombarded with campaign ads for a while. In other words, today marks the end of….

It was getting ugly down here, lemme tell ‘ya. The gloves were off, and Mittsie and John McLiebercain were are each other’s throats. From The New York Times:
TAMPA, Fla. — The Republican contest for Florida ended in acrimony on Monday as the two leading candidates traded attacks, aggressively courting voters across the Florida peninsula in a primary battle that could produce a clear front-runner for the party’s presidential nomination before a virtual national primary next week.
The sparring, between Mitt Romney and Senator John McCain of Arizona, came as polls showed the race a statistical tie between them, with Rudolph W. Giuliani and Mike Huckabee, former governor of Arkansas, lagging.
Mr. Romney, former governor of Massachusetts, began attacking at dawn, accusing Mr. McCain of allying himself with liberal Democrats in the Senate and betraying conservative principles on legislation involving immigration, the environment and campaign finance.
“If you want that kind of a liberal Democratic course as president, then you can vote for him,” Mr. Romney said at a Texaco gas station in West Palm Beach at 6:30 a.m. “But those three pieces of legislation, those aren’t conservative. Those aren’t Republican.”
Mr. McCain volleyed back by describing Mr. Romney as a serial flip-flopper who had taken multiple positions on a variety of issues, including gay rights, global warming and immigration. “People, just look at his record as governor,” Mr. McCain said at a shipyard in Jacksonville. “He has been entirely consistent. He has consistently taken two sides of every major issue, sometimes more than two.”
Both campaigns spent liberally on television and radio advertising and have been placing automated phone calls carrying negative messages about each other. Romney aides said on Monday that some of their candidate’s Cuban-American supporters had received phone calls saying Mr. Romney favored normalized relations with Fidel Castro’s Cuba, a blasphemy to most Cuban émigrés. Mr. McCain’s staff said it was not responsible for the calls.
[...]with polls showing the race in Florida to be neck and neck, it was Mr. McCain who went on the offensive against Mr. Romney over the weekend, ending something of an unofficial truce that had helped produce a relatively gentle Republican debate last week in Boca Raton.
Mr. McCain accused Mr. Romney of having called in the spring for a timetable for withdrawal from Iraq, likening him to the Democrats in his approach to the conflict.
Mr. Romney denounced the charge as false, and his traveling press secretary, Eric Fehrnstrom, said Mr. McCain’s accusation “raises the ante” and forced Mr. Romney to “respond in kind.”
This was followed by taunts of:
Up your nose with a rubber hose! (Hey! Is that waterboarding?)
Oh, yeah? Well, I heard that you changed your mind. So, what did you do with the diaper?
From there, the conversation insults devolved into:
I’m rubber and you’re glue, whatever you say bounces off me and sticks to you!
You’re a big fat doodyhead!
