"If tonight proved one thing, it's that the central rationale of Mitt Romney's campaign is cratering... Why? Because Mitt Romney's been exposed as being out of touch with the middle class, and voters are seeing that he lives by another set of rules. He's refused to level with voters, and now he's in trouble. Anyone who goes into a state with a significant double digit lead yet ends up losing that support in a week, is someone who is failing to connect."

-- DNC Chair Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz in a statement distributed last night after the South Carolina primary was quickly called in favor of Newt Gingrich. Romney lost the state by more than I'd have thought possible.
