Fear not. That “First in the South” bumper sticker is still worth something. A blubbering mess since Florida moved its primary to Jan. 29, the South Carolina GOP has changed its date to Jan. 19.

South Carolinians have a solid record of picking winners, but at some point you have to ask yourself if voters will know in January who the winner should be. Heck, you’ve still got some guys that haven’t entered the race yet. Less thoughtful contemplation will give the victory to the candidate with the best one-liners (and look how well that’s worked out for us).
