Rick Santorum wins the GOP primaries in Alabama and Mississippi, the two states with the most racist and ignorant Republican voters in the country.
In other words, if Alabama and Mississippi are for Santorum, he has absolutely no chance of being elected president of the United States.
This is all good news for President Obama.
Whenever Mitt Romney loses, Obama wins because Mitt is the only GOP candidate with a prayer against Obama.
But, Mitt whiffed in the South on Tuesday. He came in third behind Newt "Family Values" Gingrich despite spending far more money than his three competitors combined.
Mitt will likely be the Republican nominee, but he is now more damaged goods since the deep base of the GOP doesn't care for him and will likely not turn out and vote for him in November.
As I've noted before, if Mitt can't energize Republicans to get out and vote for him, it spells trouble for GOP candidates in other federal, state or local races.
Still, it's only mid-March. We've got eight long months of negative ads, funded by unregulated Super-PACs, to wade through.
It's fun, though, to see Republicans make themselves look ridiculous in trying to pander to the least-common denominator in America.
