It’s a two-channel night for me tonight talking about that little primary in Florida.
I’ll be on the World Channel (ch.13 in NY, you can find you local channel at this link) from 8-9pm and then on NY1 from 10-11pm.

In my NY Post column today I explain why Mitt Romney’s funny-sounding self-deport immigration policy is actually pretty serious.

Why I’m anti-Newt, without using the word “electability”, my latest for WNYC’s A Free Country.

In my latest column for the NY Post I wonder if Americans will overlook Newt Gingrich’s multiple marriages and romantic destruction. Conclude, no.

Stop what you’re doing and go read this article (in the NY Times!! By an NPR reporter!!) on why Europe is failing.

(On a totally different note, I don’t know the linking hat-tip/via rules anymore. It used to be that you read something on someone’s blog, wrote about it on your own blog and linked back to their blog with a hat-tip. Now, I don’t know how it works. I saw Ken’s link on Facebook but no one links to Facebook, as most people have private pages, so I chose to link his blog. But I also saw the link in the post below on Facebook and chose to link James Taranto’s twitter instead of his Best of the Web column. It’s so complicated in 2012!)
This is hilarious:

I was on NY1 yesterday doing a political rundown opposite Civil Rights attorney Ron Kuby. The video is here.
I asked Kuby for a picture to show my pothead friends (he was famously mentioned in Big Lebowski). I am cracking up in the shot (but hey, my hair looks good):

I wrote yesterday, before the NH primary, that the only chance of any kind of upset is someone other than Mitt winning first place in New Hampshire.
I was on my way to a results-watching party at the other end of the city last night and at 8:01pm, a minute after polls closed, every station called it for Mitt. I was still in the cab.
So, it’s probably over.
I guess Rick Perry can make his last stand in South Carolina but like other obvious winners before him, like Rudy Giuliani and Fred Thompson last time around, the problem for Perry is that his campaign has been so terrible that I don’t expect it to magically get better in time to put up a real challenge.
But hey, it’s not the campaign season if we don’t have a lot of pointless speculation. Give me yours, if you’ve got any, in the comment section.
