Jonathan Martin's reported follow-up on Rick Perry's "not quitting" tweet is hilarious.

The source seems awfully happy!
Meanwhile, Barack Obama won around 98 percent of the Iowa Democratic caucuses; some token opposition came in college and urban counties, but not much anywhere else. It was roughly equivilent to the vote Bill Clinton got in 1996. Don't worry: Pat Caddell will sell a column about the coming anti-Obama primary challenge anyway.
