“Apparently, Mitt Romney has hit the panic button,” writes an Exurban League contributor in a post titled “Remain Calm

Huckabee has replaced him in the national polls, kicking Romney to fifth place (ouch!), and is surging in Romney’s “locked up” state of Iowa. How to reverse the damage? Send in Tagg Hewitt (Hugh’s doppelgänger) for another round insisting that it is only a two-man race.

As usual, the message from Romney camp mimics Kevin Bacon’s classic scene in Animal House as the Deltas’ Deathmobile was tearing through the college parade:

“Remain calm! ALL IS WELL!!!”

On the troubled “two man race” theme, we have this to say:

Question: Why are the Romneys always trying to tell us what to think?—if it really were a 2 man race would the Romneys need to insist so vigorously that it is a 2 man race?

Translation of the Romney’s message to Iowa: STOP LOOKING AT THE OTHER CANDIDATES. STOP THINKING FOR YOURSELVES. PLEASE GET BACK INTO LINE: WE BOUGHT AND PAID FOR THIS STATE MONTHS AGO. THERE’S WAY TOO MUCH DEMOCRACY GOING ON AMONG THOSE BARNYARDS AND CORN FIELDS!
