Welcome to CNH’s Water Cooler, where fellow Hubsters commiserate and comment on current events, or whatever you like, while our boys Jon and Stephen are away.
Hey Hubsters! Hope everyone has had a great break week. I am writing from snowy Chicago, watching the white stuff blow around outside my window as I ponder the happenings of the past few Stephen-less days. Can it be summer again yet?
Of course, the news cycle has kept a spinnin’ although TCR and Stephen are off the airwaves. We started off the week with a dramatic Super Bowl XLVI, resulting in a spectacular Giants win. Shortly after coming down from our chicken winged- and be-nachoed Super Bowl high, this week also resulted in a veritable deluge of Santorum (sounds great, right?), with the conservative candidate winning the Missouri, Minnesota, and Colorado primaries/caucuses.
Santorum also went on to be a featured speaker at CPAC today, further cementing his status as the Christian conservative’s candidate of choice. Mitt Romney continues to struggle to connect with voters, flaunting an endorsement from Donald Trump and pushing a pro-Wall Street image. There are constant whisperings that Ron Paul will finally claim a state for his own, having been a strong runner up in most of the primary contests. Newt Gingrich still trudges on, despite lackluster showings post-South Carolina. Whatever the tumult he may go through on the campaign trail, Calista Gingrich’s hair remains unmoved, a truly remarkable feat. If only her flat-iron could speak.
I know I am likely missing a lot of other great stories, so I posit the following to the Hubsterdom:
What stories do you think Stephen and/or Jon would cover right now? Was there anything that happened this week which prompted you think, “Stephen would have totally talked about that”?
