Is this why I'm tired?

John McCain just put a down payment on the nightmare scenario. The GOP standings are very clear, despite the maunderings of the media that the race is still up in the air:

  • McCain - 616
  • Romney - 295
  • Huckabee - 170
If Mitt Romney weren't so obviously a two-faced smarm peddler, he might have won enough fundie delegates away from Mike Huckabee. As it is, Romney and Huckabee have to combine to deny McCain the nomination. Who's going to emulsify that combination of oil and water (snake and holy)?

So, the Republicans who despise McCain because he's a teensy-weensy bit heterodox seem to be deciding that 95% of a loaf is better than Hillary, even if they supposedly lose Ann Coulter in the bargain. Who knows, maybe they'd like to lose her, though they haven't usually shown that sort of good judgement.

Once the war for November starts in earnest, count on the likes of Rush Limbaugh and Laura Ingraham experiencing foxhole conversions and supporting McCain. Otherwise, they'll have to take a woman and a Clinton or a black man with Muslims in the woodpile.

I'd really like to escape this nightmare and get some rest...
