Yesterday, I received a New York Voter Exploratory Republican Presidential Preference Polling Ballot in the mail.

Let’s make Newt Gingrich President of the Moon, and then have the Russians ship him off on a Soyuz rocket to serve out his term there, in a capsule on the side of the crater, the ruler of all he can see.

Direct-to-Garment printer CafePress has a “Cultural Barometer” of sales records it’s been using to track trends of support for 2012 Republican presidential contenders. Here are the CafePress Barometer’s readings from November 14 through December 31 of 2011.

Christine Todd Whitman Goes to Press a 7th Time to Promote Jon Huntsman, Violating Americans Elect Policy

She’s done it a whopping six times before in a fairly short time. This is the seventh.

The bylaws of the privatized presidential nomination called Americans Elect aren’t vague. They are specific:

Section 4.12. Neutrality of Directors. Board members shall not communicate or act in favor of or in opposition to any candidate for President [...]
