First Slice 2/1/12: Newt loses Florida, still won't go away

Posted By on Wed, Feb 1, 2012 at 8:41 AM

1. Following a decisive Mittens Romney win in Florida, Newt Gingrich told supporters and journalists (HuffPo says there were more journalists gathered to hear him speak than supporters), "It is now clear that this will be a two-person race between the conservative leader, Newt Gingrich, and the Massachusetts moderate, and the voters of Florida made that clear." OK, so he lost. But he still kind of won because he beat other losers? For anyone who thought Gingrich might be discouraged by the loss, rest assured that isn't the case: "I just want to reassure everyone, we are going to contest every place and we are going to win and we will be in Tampa as the nominee in August,"

2. For those interested in living vicariously through teenagers with athletic prowess and ostensibly bright futures, it's signing day.

3. Researchers at U.C. Berkeley might have figured out how to read people's minds. Sorry, but I'm pretty sure this guy beat you to it.
