The results are in. Former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney edged a narrow victory in Ohio, the most hotly contested state, and Massachusetts, Virginia, Vermont, Idaho and Alaska. Elsewhere, Rick Santorum won Oklahoma and Tennessee and Newt Gingrich won his home state of Georgia. But what do these results mean for the rest of the GOP campaign? And do they tell us anything about how the country will vote in November?

Perhaps the reason that voter participation is so low is that we are all sick of the SUPER SATURATION of political ads - tons of crap in our mailboxes, endless annoying robocalls, countless mindnumbing politcal ads on TV -

It's sickening to think of all that money wasted by the SUPERPACS to torture us!

How much better it would be to use all that cash to reduce our national debt.
