WTW: The Maverick Pulls It Out On Tuesday

 

Morning, y’all Jebediah Murphy here with some of that truthiness stuff. Apparently, quite a few Florida seniors thought they were voting for Pat Buchannan

Sen. John McCain last night became the man to beat for the Republican presidential nomination, edging out Mitt Romney to win the Florida primary and ending the bid of one-time front-runner Rudolph W. Giuliani.

The victory, Mr. McCain’s first in a Republican-only primary, came with strong support from conservatives and represented a remarkable validation for the Arizona senator written off by political pundits six months ago.

You have to hand it to him. Maverick did pull it off. He is more then likely the presumptive GOP nominee. He was dead a few months ago, campaign wise. Now, expect progressives to start discussing his age, saying he will literally be dead shortly. We make think he is very liberal, but to the hard left, hell, even Hillary and B. Hussein Obama are not liberal enough. Matter of fact, those two are even called right wing.

Some choice reactions

The Corner: So it is over. Finished. In November, we’ll be sending out our most liberal, least trustworthy candidate vs. to take on Hillary Clinton—perhaps not more liberal than Barack Obama, but certainly far less trustworthy.

And the worst part for the Right is that McCain will have won the nomination while ignoring, insulting and, as of this weekend, shamelessly lying about conservatives and conservatism.

You think he supported amnesty six months ago? You think he was squishy on tax cuts and judicial nominees before? Wait until he has the power to anger every conservative in America, and feel good about it.

Michelle Malkin: …..Many pundits have been urging John McCain to reach out to conservatives (how novel that would be). In response, he made a small point tonight in his victory speech of emphasizing judges–an olive branch, apparently, in the aftermath of the Alito/Fund kerfuffle.

Well. We hear what he says now. But we know what he has done for years:

Beth at MY Vast Right Wing Conspiracy: Awww, don’t worry, I won’t gloat. Much.*

John Hawkins: You almost have to stop and marvel at the fact that these two disastrous candidates could be vomited forth as presidential nominees by our primary system. What could we even do for an encore after a John McCain vs. Hillary Clinton battle? Maybe Arlen Specter vs. Joe Lieberman in 2012? How about Larry Craig vs. Barney Frank in 2016?

Wuzzadem: Hear Ye! Hear Ye! Romney Will NOT Accept Imaginary Offer to Be John McCain’s VP.

Media Matters has Fox News Derangement. Meanwhile, Fox is still kicking the crap out of other cable news networks. Particularly their BDS infused lover Keith Olberman. Who, without Bush around in 2009, will probably get about 10 viewers per show.

Washington Times: Conservative talk radio is ganging up on presidential candidate John McCain, attacking him for joining Democrats to push liberal legislation and opposing bedrock Republican positions from tax cuts to immigration. (gee, I wonder why?)

Suitably Flip: Was Florida a Closed Primary Or Not?

McCain sings Streisand. This is here for humor relief.

Keep hope, Romney supporters.


Rudy supporters, sorry, time to move one.

BTW, the one thing I reckon I will write is that conservatives need to be cautious of their McCain assualts. He more then likely will be our nominee. I know, I know, your principles. I’m not quite sure how much principles really play in POLITICS, but, hey, those principles will look fantastic when Hillary is waving to all the people living in tents from the White House balcony in a salmon colored pants suit, while Islamic jihadi’s are bombing the large number of abortion centers that would open up. Airport security? Won’t need it, as most of us would not be able to afford to fly.

With McCain, at least we would get some of what we like.

    Jebediah said: The Maverick pulls it out on Super Tuesday.

    Super Tuesday hasn’t happened yet but I hope he does do well next week on Super Tuesday.

  2. Well, it was super for McCain 🙂

    I knew I had written Super Tuesday in my early morning fog, thought I had scrubbed it. Fixed.

    well it looks like the liberals have taken over the Republican party
    Fred! the one true conservative is gone and the champion of 9/11 and National security Rudy has had it also

    Wonderful compilation of posts. Great post your own self. Belushi has me all inspired. Here in Colorado Obama is at Denver University. The Interstate is completely clogged. The auditorium is filled. Crowds are overflowing all over the D.U. campus. Gary Hart is directly behind the podium. Where is Belushi when you really need him?

  5. Bob Agard says:

    Update:
    Belushi has not yet shown up, but James Brown is here warming up the crowd. Feddy (Pena) and the Dreamers are ecstatic. “Yes We Can!”

    Oh my gosh, here comes Caroline Kennedy! Did you know that her father was “our nation’s greatest president?” How could that be? I thought he did not like Fidel Castro and the Commies. I thought he actually cut taxes.

    Caroline is for “working people.” Caroline is for children. Caroline is for ending the war in Iraq.

    Barack finally arrives one hour late…, because he cares. He’s got three HUGE bodyguards.

    First he thanks Federico Pena. Then he thanks the woman who is head of the young democrats. He thanks Rod Smith of the Denver Broncos, and hopes he will some day be in the Hall of Fame. He ignores Gary Hart and Mayor Hickenlooper. He thanks his young organizers in Colorado. He praises John Edwards and says he will miss the mill.

  6. Hey, Bob, how doing? We haven’t begun to fight yet! 🙂
