Great work, Newshour. We’ve been wondering why Howard Dean started trending on Twitter tonight. It’s somewhere in this video.

John Sununu is the best part of MSNBC’s New Hampshire coverage.

"There’s a technical term for that. It’s a crock of crap.” Ahahahahaha I love this guy. Way more fun than Pat Buchanan.

We also have this constant denigration of “what Europe has become”. Does Romney know that unemployment in Germany is 5.5 percent? Or is all this just abstract @(&!((!7?
Andrew Sullivan goes after Mitt’s criticisms of Europe in his New Hampshire victory speech tonight.

Mitt Romney on winning New Hampshire: "What defines us as Americans is our unwavering conviction that it must be better and it will be better. That conviction guides our campaign." … "The president has run out of ideas … now he’s running out of excuses."

That was fast: New Hampshire primary already called for Romney

More info as we get it. Obviously, the real story here is who gets second and third, honestly.

UPDATE: The L.A. Times reports that Romney’s victory is the first time a non-sitting Republican presidential candidate won both New Hampshire and Iowa. Really, the race should be more interesting in South Carolina, where it probably won’t get called so quickly.

On why the Union Leader ads cross a line

mbimotmog says: Not really sure how this “crosses a line”…did the Union Leader create new ad space just for the purpose of allowing Obama to advertise or did the Obama campaign simply buy the biggest placement that the UL offered?

» SFB says: To explain, the problem we see with the Obama ads is that they’re so large that they overwhelm the rest of the content, which means that it’s having an adverse effect on the journalism. It feels like the financial gain overtook the ethics in this case. It’s not as bad as the DM Register, but it’s clearly intended on counteracting the news. When an ad is that large, the lines between advertising and editorial start to blur — which is less of a problem when the ads aren’t political. But in this case, the ads are very much intended to counteract the news of the day. Obama should be free to spend wherever he wants. But the newspaper should know when to say no to an ad request.  — Ernie @ SFB
