First off, I would like to congratulate the Machiavellian genius who wrote the Obamacare bill such that the whole insurance/birth control issue would be timed to kick in right in the middle of the Republican primary. That, sir, was a political masterstroke. If it was just a coincidence, then take your bow and tell everyone you meant it to happen that way.
There's nothing that'll make Republicans shut up about taxes and the economy quicker than queers or dead babies. It's as easy as distracting a puppy with a tennis ball. The GOP might as well adopt the campaign slogan "Four More Years!"
Meanwhile, with his post-Michigan petulant little snit fit captured on camera, Rick Santorum has managed to do the impossible: Become a Republican candidate that I'm even less likely to vote for than Mitt Romney. Way to show off that legendary grace under pressure there, sweater vest man. That's exactly the character trait I want to see in a man who could get the launch controls for America's thermonuclear arsenal confused with his garage door opener and can sic Predator drones on people with the stroke of a pen.
