Whew! Romney takes Michigan and Arizona

February 29, 2012  |  No Comments  |  Share

By David A. Fahrenthold, Washington Post Mitt Romney won both of Tuesday’s Republican presidential primaries, routing Rick Santorum in Arizona and narrowly securing Michigan, his birth state. The victories will provide an important boost for Romney, a former Massachusetts governor who has sought to cast himself as the GOP’s inevitable nominee. He has now won primary contests in six states: New Hampshire, Florida,...

Do U.S. territories vote in the Primaries?

February 28, 2012  |  No Comments  |  Share

I thought this was an appropriate question as Arizona and Michigan voters head to the polls today.  The answer comes from Scholastic.com. Do U.S. territories vote in the primaries? Yes. A territory is a part of the United States that has its own government but is not considered a state. Voters in U.S. territories do hold primaries and caucuses to...

A wacky and wild election year has just taken another weird turn. First of all, we love that Mitt Romney appealed to his inner moderate and said he is "not willing to light his hair on fire" to attract the social firebrands that are lining up behind Rick Santorum in Michigan. The strangest thing to us political neophytes is that...

Like, Wow So Facebook went public. Now you can own a piece of the social networking website, as well as troll around on it, killing time. It was quite a success story: A bitter, self-loathing computer genius goes from creating sites to demean women to becoming one of the richest men in the world. For the record, I am basing all...
