    ...so to speak. :D


    This is either Mitt's JFK moment, or his last hurrah.

    More contorting by the Mittster, against a guy he'll be hard-pressed to hang close to in Iowa . . . unless he does what he should do -- start pounding hard at the weakest planks (and there are plenty) in MH's personal platform. If he can't make hay doing that, Mitt's doomed, anyway.

    MH has "VP Nom" tattooed on his forehead for '08, anyway . . . it makes so much sense for the GOP, on so many levels.

    Ignore this story at your peril, y'all. You will be sick of it by Thursday.

    Here's an interesting take on Huckabee for 24 fans.

    Good luck with that, Mitt.

    Meanwhile, the Huck hits a bump.

    People need to remember that New Hampshire and South Carolina are much more important than Iowa.

    Didn't Dole win Iowa in 1988? I seem to remember Clinton finishing third in 1992...

    I must admit it does annoy the hell out of me that three states like New Hampshire, South Carolina and Iowa play such an important role in these primaries.

    How about they start the process in states that the candidate will actually have to win to get elected? I understand that there are certain states like California or New York or Texas that historically lean toward one party, but it seems like states like Ohio, Pennsylvania or maybe Florida would be a better way to gauge who the next leader of the free world should be.
  10. IIRC, Pat Robertson won in Iowa in 1988.
    Anyway, it may not be worth all the attention, but anyone who finished third there on the R side is really damaged.

    I really have to question this. I mean, if you want to hear about the LDS, there are a whole bunch of kids in white shirts and ties who would explain the church to you.
  12. I give them lemonade and send them on their way.
    We have more fun with the Jehovah's Witnesses, America's Other Door-To-Door Religion.
