still pulled over 1 per­cent of the vote. Mitt Rom­ney got roughly 428,000 votes. Perry got al­most 5,500 votes. Perry, who is out of the race, who did not make an ap­pear­ance in Illi­nois, who has en­dorsed an­other can­di­date, still pulled in 1 per­cent of the vote,” Mr. Phillips says, adding that the phe­nom­e­non is a “fore­shad­ow­ing” of fu­ture dis­as­ter.

“Even with that mas­sive spend­ing,” Mr. Rom­ney did not get 50 per­cent of the vote, Mr. Phillips warns, and that does not bode well should he face Pres­i­dent Obama on the Novem­ber bal­lot, he says. http://bud­get.house.gov/up­load­edFiles/alt­growth­sce­nario3222012.pdf

This is no tepid brew: Adamant law­mak­ers, tea par­ty­ers and lim­it­ed­gov­ern­ment lovers will in­vade Capi­tol Hill in the next three days to bring their own case to the at­ten­tion of the Supreme Court — and ev­ery­one else, for that mat­ter — as the jus­tices hear three days of ar­gu­ments over the con­sti­tu­tion­al­ity of health care re­form, be­gin­ning Mon­day.

The Road to Repeal Rally, or­ga­nized by the Tea Party Pa­tri­ots and sched­uled for nigh noon Satur­day in up­per Se­nate Park, draws some big names. Among the main re­peal­ers of the day: Her­man Cain, Virginia At­tor­ney Gen­eral Ken­neth T. Cuc­cinelli II, Re­pub­li­can Reps. Louie Gohmert of Texas and Dan Ben­ishek of Michi­gan, film­maker and newly ap­pointed pres­i­dent of Bre­it­bart Me­dia Stephen K. Ban­non, Faith & Free­dom Coali­tion Di­rec­tor Ken Black­well, 60 Plus Chair­man Jim Martin and a dozen re­gional tea party groups.

Things get louder Tues­day when Amer­i­cans for Pros­per­ity stages a Hands Off My Health Care rally in the very same park, with an even grander cast. Among the many speak­ers: Re­pub­li­can Sens. Rand Paul of Ken­tucky, Pa­trick J. Toomey of Penn­syl­va­nia and Jim Demint of South Carolina, and Re­pub­li­can Reps. Paul Ryan of Wis­con­sin, Michele Bach­mann of Min­nesota and Allen B. West of Florida.

An ea­ger pha­lanx of in­ter­est groups also will be on hand, from Con­cerned Women for Amer­ica, Ea­gle Forum, Fam­ily Re­search Coun­cil and Heart­land In­sti­tute to the In­sti­tute for Lib­erty, Ju­di­cial Ac­tion Group, Let Free­dom Ring and Smart Girl Pol­i­tics.
