According to exit polls. . .
One has to wonder how Hewitt & Co. will spin this one.
Caveat: assuming these numbers hold, of course.
"I have to think that what really sticks in the Limbaugh/Ingraham/Hewitt collective craw is the fact that McCain has been a darling of the media. And some Democrats and independents say they could vote for him."
"Why, send yours truly to Capitol Hill, and I'll ship the swag home in boxcar lots. You'll be paving the roads with bacon around here when I get done shoveling out the pork barrel. There'll be government jobs for your dog. Leave your garden hose running for fifteen minutes, and I'll have the Department of Transportation build an 8-lane suspension bridge across the puddle. Show me a wet basement and I'll get you a naval base and make your Roto-Rooter man an admiral of the fleet. There'll be farm subsidies for every geranium you've got in a pot, defense contracts for Junior's spitballs and free day care for Sister's dolls. You'll get unemployment for the sixteen hours every day when you're not at your job, full disability benefits if you have to get up in the night to take a leak, and Social Security checks will come in the mail not just when you retire at sixty-five but when you retire each night to bed. Taxes? Hell, I'll have the government go around every week putting money back in your paycheck, and I'll make the IRS hire chimpanzees from the zoo to audit your tax returns. Vote for me, folks, and you'll be farting through silk."
To which Mark Levin responds thusly:
Corner Catch-UpMan, you guys have been rough of John McCain in my absence.
And that is precisely the kind of idiocy that begets this kind of idiocy in an email to David Freddoso:
You Wrote the Book on It
Jonah writes, "Man, you guys have been rough of John McCain in my absence." It's the liberal fascism thing that concern some of us about his record and candidacy, Jonah.
UPDATE: Now, K-Lo laments the divisiveness of it all:
And then there's the other approach to McCain...Why publish such intellectual contortions for supporting a McCain who in reality would be a national disaster which would even neuter conservatives from any ability to blame the disaster on the opposition when it would inevitably come to pass? Come November I'll vote worst leftist on the ballot if McCain is GOP candidate, so it is clear to the American people who produces the national trainwreck.
"Sad," IndeedHuckabee, forever the uniter.
