    The dirty little secret of the Alabama and Mississippi primaries ;)
    Posted by Chris Cillizza at 01:13 PM ET, 03/13/2012

    Here’s a simple fact that has been lost amid Mitt Romney’s newfound love of grits, Newt Gingrich’s desire for gun racks on Chevy Volts and Rick Santorum’s insistence that the South is a home game for him: None of the top three Republican presidential contenders are “of” the South in any meaningful way.

    “The south is not just a place, it is, as they proudly tell you, a state of mind,” said Republican consultant Alex Castellanos. “The North is defined by reason, the South embraces romance and the heart. The North is relativist, the South lives by absolutes. When the South is right, it is absolutely right. When wrong, it is absolutely, tragically wrong.”

    Ed Rogers, a Republican consultant and Alabama native, put it more bluntly. “None of them hit the sweet spot,” he said of the GOP field. “None of the candidates are story tellers, none take football seriously, none are Protestant and nobody really has a favorite country music singer.”

    It is irrelevant whether any of the republican wannabes are liked in the South or not. Whomever wins the nomination will win these two states - no matter how unlikeable, dumb, unattractive, ill informed - the more Bush / Palin like they are - they will win. Truly sad.
