    Dang! And I was hoping that the field wouldn't winnow down for another couple of months.

    Thanks for the update. So now only 2 will appear? That has to suck for Gingrich who was in the lead in Virginia.

    Don't forget, VA has 49 delegation votes. None of those were pledged to either Romney or Paul.

    Good for Virginia because I cannot stand either Newt Gingrich or that narrow minded, bible thumping screwball from Texas, Rick Perry. Now if only that babbling, bumbling bitch from Minnesota, Michelle Bachmann would get disqualified from the GOP primary ballot in Virginia that would be so sweet.

    Strange. If their campaigns are poorly run, how will they run the country?

    I was thinking the exact same thing. How hard is it to get your name on a ballot? You collect some signatures and you have months to do it.
    I would expect this kind of failure from Perry, since his campaign has been one blunder after another. But Newt can't get it together enough to get 400 signatures from three dozen or so counties?
    This is doubly embarrassing for Newt, since he lives in Virginia.
