Romney in Michigan

Barring a major surprise, Mitt Romney will take the Michigan Primary…

Congrats to Team Romney. It was gut check time, and you did what you had to do.

UPDATE: 8:00P Central, FNC calls it for Romney.

Fifteen minutes after the Fox News Channel projected the winner of the Michigan Primary, John McCain stepped to the microphone to offer a brief concession—on to South Carolina speech on national television.

Fifteen minutes and thirty seconds after the FNC projection, Mitt Romney stepped up to the mike.

Fox cuts from McCain to Mitt.

Bigfoot!

Heh™

Primary politics. I love this stuff.

Update2:
Carl Cameron is reporting that this was an intentional slight.

Big surprise there.

Update3: CNN is reporting the late-breakers went for Romney.

Update4: Fred Barnes says he was “surprised” to see Romney sweating during his victory speech. Guess Fred needs to read his briefing papers a little more closely.

“In tense meetings, he perspired so heavily it became an office joke.” Source

And here’s something else coming out of Michigan.

Detroit Steel (composite just doesn’t have the right ring to it)

The 2007 Shelby Cobra GT500 Mustang (this is not the 2006 Shelby GT500 Cobra Mustang) is the most powerful factory-built Mustang in history, more powerful than the 1969 Mach 1 428 Super Cobra Jet or even the legendary 1969 Boss 429. 450+ HP, making this making it the most powerful Mustang ever.

2008cobra.jpgAt least for one year anyway, when Ford rolled out the 2008 version. It uses the same supercharged 5.4-liter V8 that powers the 2007 Shelby GT500 Cobra Coupe, but squeezes out roughly another 40 horses thanks to a Ford Racing Power Upgrade Pack. The Shelby GT500KR is equipped with a custom carbon composite hood with scoops, air-extractor vents and stainless steel twist-down hood pins, a lower front air dam with chrome-trimmed functional brake ducts, and 14-inch Brembo front brakes. The suspension has been modified to improve handling. The polished 20-inch wheels seen here are for show only. The production vehicle will come with 18-inch wheels of a similar design. source

The Shelby Cobra is without a doubt, the best argument against increasing the cafe mileage standards, don’t you think?

From the mailroom

Nuke: “We’ve known each other for some time now, and frankly I just can’t understand your support for the huckster. He’s a RINO who, if nominated, will totally destroy the Republican party. Populism is not conservatism, and this is the candidate you expect to unite the party and face the DemocRats in November???!!!”

He went on to tell me that he couldn’t in good conscience link back to my blog anymore, and that anyone who was willing to abandon the principles of conservatism did not deserve a spot on his blogroll.

Dang. I hate this.

I really do.

Having told myself a few months ago that I refused to lose friendships because of Primary politics, I realize now that I was wrong. And, if it means that I’m going to be de-linked at other blogrolls, then, fine. So be it. It’s a free country. Do what you’ve gotta do.

Please understand that I have arrived at my own preference based on my own set of criteria, and my own personal judgment of the candidates. I realize that many of my well-meaning blog friends do not agree with me, and perhaps they don’t realize that their comments are both condescending as well as insulting.

Since linkage and blogrolls are important to you, please understand that I carry my reciprocated blogroll on all five of my blogs. If you want to de-link me, ok, I understand. But, it’s going to cost you five links in return.

The ball is in your court.

FDT koolaid disorder: A Primer

*Fred D. Thompson Koolaid Disorder

*FDTkd is a dissonance disorder which afflicts massive numbers of supporters of Ol’ Fred’s Presidential candidacy. FDT koolaid is potent stuff. Stage One outbreak of symptoms have been observed within 30 minutes of consumption.

Although there is no known cure, intervention programs are showing some promise. Most observers believe that the disorder will run its course in 8-10 years. (For further study, see stolen elections, and Diebold).

Stage One; The Mantra

Fred Thompson is the Complete Conservative…The only candidate who can unite the Reagan coalition.. … … Consistent on all the issues… … He can unite all three legs of the conservative coalition… … Fred D. Thompson is the kindest, warmest, bravest, most wonderful human being I’ve ever known in my life….

Stage Two; The Label

Anyone who does not worship at the altar of FDT is the enemy. He is a RINO, or worse, a Communist. 

Stage Three; The Attack

Since other Republicans are not “real” conservatives, it is imperative to treat them as political enemies rather than political opponents. Rhetorical arson is encouraged. 

Stage Four; The Ultimatum

If any candidate other than Fred D. Thompson wins the Republican nomination, it is your DUTY to either vote for the Democratic nominee and encourage other Republicans to do the same, or simply not vote at all.
