people are understandably depressed as much as anyone by Super Tuesday
Even the sources who confidently expected Paul would run as an independent - from which point of view John McCain
is the perfect foil - are reduced to hoping the Texas Congressman will reconsider his Friday night refusal
to do so once he nails down his Congressional GOP nomination in the March 4 Texas primary. (He`s reportedly worried, but elected officials always worry).
Meanwhile, Mike Huckabee has massacred
John McCain in the Kansas caucuses, results just reported. This is continued evidence of the GOP`s profound malaise.
I continue to think, as the late Lynn Nofziger, Ronald Reagan`s long-time aide, wrote
shortly before he died in 2006, that all the preconditions are now present for a Third Party. I realize that this marks me out (not for the first time) as a kook. But I`ve seen it before, in Canada
. And, hey, it`s more interesting than shilling
for President Giuliani.
