McCain Claims Super Tuesday Victory

with 14 comments

McCain Wins Super Tuesday

After the dust cleared on Super Tuesday, John McCain seized front-runner status in the race for the Republican presidential nomination. He picked up 610 of the 1191 delegates needed for victory. Romney secured 257, Huckabee captured 202 and Ron Paul trailed with 9 delegates.

This is somewhat of a mystery since McCain adheres more to Democrat socialist values than Republican rugged individualism. I suppose part of his support springs from the constant liberal media blitz that trumpets McCain as their choice. In fact many have already crowned him the victor suggesting to the remaining states not to bother.

Another may be that our society as a whole has become more liberal making McCain’s victory a reflection of that shift. Finally, it could be as simple as the majority of Republicans think McCain is the best man for the job.

Whatever the reason McCain is in the lead and if the path is unaltered, our next president will be a Democrat.

  4. Hi underdog

    You got that right. If we can’t have fun what’s the point? Besides, one does look a little like Rush. The good thing about art is different people see different things.

  5. Hi LC,

    As to fun, if McCain or any of the other Democrats win, they will encourage the advance of the Nanny State, and fun will become savoring your yearly allotment of one cheeseburger.

    As to McCain, I have voted Republican in every National election since 1976 with the exception of one year that I was out of the country and underestimated the length of time needed to request and receive an absentee ballot, however, if my choice on that ticket is the Manchurian Candidate, I’ll gleefully vote for either Hillary or Obama in the hope that the mess the Dems make of things if they hold all the reigns of power will teach the general public a lesson!

  6. Hi Grit

    If the worst happens there is an open window. It’s possible that both the House and Senate could return to Republican control. This would at least engage the people’s friend known as gridlock.

    However, for some reason I think the next prez will have more to worry about than social programs. Since no one has bothered to close the borders we can be fairly certain that all kinds of nasty creatures have slipped through.

    Democrats who have selfishly and recklessly sought to destroy George Bush have set the stage for a national security nightmare. Maybe GWB will get the last laugh after all. Hope Hillary or Obama can play the fiddle.

  7. Hi LC,

    Unfortunately, Hillary and Obama have already declared their intention to surrender to the Islamic fascists if they win, so any attacks by those vermin will only enhance their stance. McCain, if he wins, in such a situation would clutch his chest and collapse. Basically, what with Mitt dropping out of the race today, we’re screwed. Which makes me think that, if I hit the $52 million Saturday, I’m packing up the farm and family and moving to Scotland, where I’ll buy a castle, brew whiskey, and get in some trout fishing. Needless to say, you will be welcome anytime.

  8. Hi Grit

    Romney bailing is disappointing. Also, given McCain’s record it’s impossible to support “The Fossil.” We’ll have to see the VP choice as it could make a difference. As you say, McCain is likely to grab his chest first sign of trouble.

    I’m still not sure about Huckabee. I could be wrong but he reminds me too much of a Republican Slick Willie. He’s definitely a wait and see.

    As I am very familiar with castle life if you decide to go then I’m in. Of course once I get there I’m never leaving. 🙂

  9. Hi LC,

    Well, if you wish permanent residence then you’ll have to take the occasional turn of guard duty on the battlements and not make any rude comments when I, inevitably, try my hand at making haggis. Other than that, unless you’re allergic to dogs and/or cats, I would expect there to be plenty of room in my envisioned future digs for you to stake our a corner for as long as you like. Just stay out of the basement laboratory.

  10. Hi Grit

    Guard duty, dogs and cats, stay out of basement laboratory… no problem.

    Rude comments about haggis, haggis, let me see what is haggis?

    Haggis – Sheep’s or calf’s viscera minced with oatmeal and suet and onions and boiled in the animal’s stomach.

    Viscera – Internal organs collectively (especially those in the abdominal cavity)

    Suet – Hard fat around the kidneys and loins in beef and sheep

    It seems I have changed my mind about visiting because I see that I would run the risk of starvation.

  11. Hi LC,

    I didn’t mean to imply that haggis would be the staple diet or even a regular part of it. I do, however, have an irresistible desire to try my hand at cooking exotic foods, and once in Scotland, it would have to be stuffed stomach, as I don’t recall any other dish originating from the land of golf.

  12. Hi Grit

    As you are a creator of fine dining I can understand your desire to try your hand at this exotic dish. Although on paper it looks absolutely revolting I must concede in real life it might be superb.

    At some point I’ll admit I could be persuaded to give it a try but I do reserve the right to bring along the royal taster… just in case.

  13. Hi LC,

    As head chef I always taste everything before serving it. Thus, if I last long enough to bring it to the table…

  14. Hi Grit

    It’s comforting to know that you are willing to take one for the team. You are courageous and an honorable man. An excellent combination.
