Rick Santorum, Double Dixie
Chuck Norris fact: His endorsement doesn't seem to turn into votes.

Mitt Romney learned an important lesson on Tuesday night: It doesn't matter how many bowls of grits you eat in the South, it won't lead to a primary win.

Romney was hoping to solidify his lead in the Republican presidential primary race with wins in Alabama and Mississippi, but Rick Santorum squeaked by, keeping his nomination dreams alive.

On Facebook, Romney was downplaying the Southern vote, thanking those who did turn out, but banking his hopes on primaries in Hawaii and American Samoa. Joining Romney in the losers circle were Newt Gingrich and Ron Paul, who also tried to minimize Santorum’s Double Dixie win.

Gingrich had something to promote: His support by the one and only Chuck Norris. Of course, things didn’t go well for the last politician Norris endorsed.

But the victor of Tuesday night was Santorum, regardless of what happened in Hawaii and American Samoa. The former Pennsylvania Senator was also the big winner on Twitter, but as always, that can be a mixed blessing.
