As Rick Santorum himself said last night, “We did it again.” In two closely-watch primaries down South Tuesday – Rick Santorum pulled off a clean sweep – winning both Alabama and Mississippi. Despite outspending Santorum 5-to-1 in Alabama, and 3-to-1 in Mississippi, Romney got third place in both contests.

Newt Gingrich finished second in the two states that his own campaign spokesman said were “need to win states” to remain a “credible candidate,” but based on his concession speech last night – Gingrich isn’t going anywhere – telling his supporters he plans, “to go all the way to Tampa.” So, much to the Republican Party’s chagrin – the primary season continues and the establishment pick, Mitt Romney, will have to limp along for a few more months.

And just when you thought news couldn’t get any better for President Obama – a top Gingrich aide is floating the possibility of a Santorum-Gingrich Presidential ticket – uniting one guy who want to take contraceptives away from women – and another guy who wants to take food assistance away from impoverished children. The good thing about this Republican primary – is the longer that it goes on – the more we get to hear the truth about the Republican agenda to help the oligarchs.

Is Amazon the #1 Threat To Jobs?

The conventional wisdom is that outsourcing to places like China is the biggest threat to American jobs.

And while that's definitely true, there's a new threat on the horizon.

As it expands out from its online bookstore roots, Amazon has approached virtual monopoly status - and regular retailers are paying the price.
