Where did the Republican party go wrong? New York Magazine's John Heilemann joins the show to talk about the fractured GOP ahead of the primaries in Michigan and Arizona tomorrow. The party faces problems in California too – dwindling funds, no elected reps in the state and low registration. Carla Marinucci attended the party's state convention in San Francisco and will join the show with an update. 'The Artist' wins big, Sacha Baron Cohen dumps on Ryan Seacrest and Angelina reveals her long, long leg. Comedian and author Teresa Strasser joins the show to talk with Madeleine about stand out moments from last night's Oscar show.
