I have decided to stand aside. … But make no mistake, I’ll continue to be a strong voice.

Perry says he will go back to Texas and reassess his candidacy. That’s big news. But he looks relieved in a way. If you out-spend your opponents by this vast amount and come in fifth, you really need to drop out. And it looks as if he will.
Andrew Sullivan’s take on Rick Perry, who plans to head back to Texas to reconsider whether he wants to keep running for president. Bachmann, however, is still in the race.

That feeling in the pit of your stomach is the knowledge that Rick Santorum could actually win the Iowa Caucus, and you just remembered the Santorum Salad post from yesterday. Sorry.

It’s like you can literally see people in a control room scrambling to pull out some feed wires the moment he starts criticizing foreign policy on live tv.. - via

Viral video of the night: CNN pulls the plug on a soldier making an unauthorized comment on foreign policy/ Iran/ Israel. Way to go CNN.

For the record: It’s entirely unclear from this video whether CNN intentionally cut the feed as the soldier was talking, or if there was a legitimate technical glitch that caused them to lose the connection. Let’s not jump to any conclusions one way or the other just yet. Also, it’s a little presumptuous to call something the “viral video of the night” before it’s had the chance to go viral (Edit: Matthew Keys, who works in TV broadcast, suggests that it was most likely a signal issue, not intentional censoring).

Sadder vote tally: The fact that Huntsman is behind Broken Image or the fact that Roemer is behind Herman Cain, despite the fact that Cain’s out of the race entirely? (30 percent of the votes so far, BTW)

About today’s cover: “Iowa’s Ideal”
A Frankenstein of a GOP candidate: A while back, you might have seen The Washington Post’s week of profiles on the major GOP candidates, complete with portraits for each. What you might not have realized is how well they’d mash together into a single beast — as many Iowa caucus voters like some elements of each of the candidates, but not everything in any one of them. As Lila Reyonlds, an undecided Iowa voter puts it: “There is no Prince Charming.” (From top: Ron Paul, Mitt Romney, Newt Gingrich, Rick Perry, Rick Santorum and Michele Bachmann. Missing: Jon Huntsman, who is focusing on New Hampshire. Photos by Melina Mara/TWP; photo illustration by Express)

Paul’s hair + Mitt’s forehead + Newt’s eyes + Perry’s nose + Santorum’s chin + Bachmann’s neck = A mashup that you might want to avert your eyes from.
