In the don't-blink-or-you'll-miss-something GOP derby, Perry quits and backs Gingrich; polls show Newt and Romney fit to be tied in South Carolina; and this just in: Santorum, not Mitt, won Iowa

The Republican presidential horse race is the perpetual news cycle that keeps on spinning during its run for the roses.
Another petal fell today, with Rick Perry ending the folly of his Oops campaign and endorsing Newt Gingrich with a gushy, “Newt is not perfect, but who among us is?”
Gingrich, more of a Mr. Hyde, had a Dr. Jekyll Thursday when six new polls revealed he’s in a virtual dead heat with Mitt Romney in South Carolina.

Meanwhile, it definitely was a Mr. Hyde dark day for Romney, who also found out more than two weeks later that he lost to Rick Santorum in Iowa.
I realize the folks in Iowa are slow, considering they live in Iowa. But I didn’t realize they count votes on their fingers and toes. Apparently some farmers who lost digits wrestling with their stubborn plows caused the fuzzy math.
