From Andy Ostroy at OpEd News:
It’s the hottest band in politics: Sarah & the GOPettes. Ya got Palin, Michelle Bachman [sic], Nikki Haley and Christine O’Donnell. They’re young, personable and attractive, and are out there on the 2010 Tea Party Tour whipping the radical right-wing fringe base into a veritable frenzy. O’Donnell’s the latest addition, with her stunning defeat of 42-year Delaware Republican career-politician Mike Castle in Tuesday’s Senate primary. Heck, I’ll even throw the 61-year-old Sharon Angle [sic] into this group.

Fifty-four percent of those questioned in a CNN/Opinion Research Corp. survey conducted after the debate ended said that Obama did the best job in the debate, with 30 percent saying Sen. John McCain performed better.

From the Washington Post:
ATLANTA — A fiery former GOP congressman who gained national prominence for doggedly pursuing impeachment of President Clinton has some Republicans worried he’ll play spoiler in a tight presidential contest.
Bob Barr’s Libertarian Party bid for the White House is the longest of long shots, but political experts say he may be able to exploit the unease some die-hard conservatives still feel about Sen. John McCain, the Republican nominee-in-waiting. Combined with the surge in turnout among Democrats during the primaries and a difficult political climate for Republicans, they see what could be a recipe for trouble for the GOP.
“Bob could be the Ralph Nader of 2008,” said Dan Schnur, a GOP consultant in California who worked on McCain’s 2000 campaign but is not involved in this year’s contest.

Feb. 24 (Bloomberg) — Ralph Nader, the consumer advocate who ran for president in 2000 and 2004, said he’s going to make another bid for the White House this year.
“I have decided to run for president,” Nader, 73, said on NBC’s “Meet the Press” program today.

To the tune of Green, Green Grass of Home, written by Claude “Curly” Putman Jr., performed by Tom Jones:
Your ego’s still the same,
But you must accept some blame,
‘Cause you made life worse for my Mama (Mama) and Papa,
Since you ran for reasons oh so skimpy,
And you got us stuck with Chimpy,
You should take your Green, Green ass on home.
