The Gateway (Open Marriage and Closed Doors Edition)
I told Domestic Partner I wanted an open marriage, and she went to the front door, unlocked it and said "the door is open, be my guest."
That being said, the idea this will hurt Gingrich in South Carolina is belied by who they elected as their Governor after the prior one had a sex scandal. Swingers? Newt Wanted Open Marriage, Says Ex www.nydailynews.com
Too close to call, my ass. Santorum ran first in Iowa, and if the missing precincts were counted, he would have won by even more.
I have to dispute the idea that this would not have made a significant difference.
While it would not have made Santorum first or even second in New Hampshire, it would have probably taken the wind out of Newt’s sails almost immediately, clarifying the race, and making it a de facto three way with only two plausibles (though why Santorum should be considered any less fringy that Paul is certainly a fair question).

I attach this KOS version of Mole's blog from the other day for its inclusion of the video of Fidler standing up to Vito Lopez. Daily Kos: THE Key NY Race of 2012: Lew Fidler for State Senate www.dailykos.com
I think the process for choosing Party candidates in Special Elections stinks, and I don't mind anyone saying so.
In the case of the 27th, this meant Lopez could not stop Lew Fidler and therefore didn't even try.
By contrast, the GOP chose its Party Vice Chair--not be a vote of County Committee members from the affected district, but instead by a vote of a couple a dozen Party Executive Committee, members--most of them from outside the Senate District.
That is a boss-controlled process.
