So it would seem, at least in the delegate count. But the truth probably won’t be know until later Wednesday.
Fred’s distant third in South Carolina probably means he can start taking long naps again, but surely someone (Mitt? Rudy?) can stop McCain, the irascible liberal Republican, who won. He’s the MSM’s darling, which ought to be clue enough. Nominate this guy who pretends to talk straight while refusing to call his amnesty for illegal immigrants amnesty, and you get a guy whose main claim to fame is he would fight the Islamic fanatics. I suppose that might be enough. He could match wrinkles with Hilarity. He would look awful old opposite Obama, but Obama’s anti-war, which would be a good contrast. Clinton/Obama would be sure raise taxes; McCain might not. But I’ll still cross my fingers that Mitt or Rudy blows out Florida in time to derail McCain. They have his advantage without his negatives.
UPDATE: Romney leads in the delegate count, but has yet to win a big primary, on the order of SC or NH. Mitt’s been hit for being too slick, but he should look sincere next to argumentative McCain.
I like John McCain, who’s winning with 65 percent of the votes counted in today’s New Hampshire Repub primary. I just think he’s too liberal to get enough Repub and Indy votes to be elected president. Hilarity, who is edging out Obama, would be my choice for the Dems. She’d be a lot easier to beat than the demagogue from South Chicago. But, mainly, watching Iowa’s winners lose out this time (the Huckster is about 18 points behind Romney who is in second place), it looks like these races are far from decided, and that’s probably a good thing. Next up, South Carolina.
Slick Willie is demanding ABC either change the content or pull its upcoming 9/11 movie. Touchy.
"In a letter to ABC boss Bob Iger, Clinton refuted several of the miniseries’ assertions, including that he was too preoccupied with the Monica Lewinsky sex scandal to care about Osama bin Laden."
Well, Monica certainly must have been distracting him from something.
BTW, I reserve the right to call Big Bill "Slick Willie" because I voted for him both times, and made excuses for Monica. Him getting caught out at the end selling pardons was the last straw for me.
UPDATE Could be Big Bill knew his men would roll over and play dead, if this report that ABC is editing per request is true.
