I appeared on CNBC’s Kudlow & Co. on November 22 with Crawford, NR’s Ramesh Ponnuru, and Tulane University professor Marc Lamont Hill. All three crowned McCain the frontrunner. “In fact,” Professor Hill explained, “if Rudy Giuliani and John McCain are the two finalists, so to speak, then McCain should start writing his acceptance speech right now, because there’s no way Giuliani can win this.”All the smart guys think the republican primary voters are simply too entrenched in their opposition to abortion, gun control, and gay marriage to vote for Rudy. The problem is that they discount those of us who would vote for Rudy without giving any consideration for those issues at all. I would vote for Rudy because I like him--I used to hang out in NYC during the dark days of Dinkins, and it's a hell of a lot better now. He's clealry an affective leader, and he doesn't put up with any crap from anyone. The notion that there is no way he can beat McCain is crazy to me. Just crazy.
But wait. Apart from the oft-reverberating echoes of what “everybody knows,” what evidence is there that McCain is the frontrunner? Au contraire, countervailing evidence has piled as high as the Grand Canyon is deep.

if the Republicans want to win the White House in 2008, there is only one candidate to get behind: Rudy!

Lose the election, reach all new job-approval lows, and so what do you go and do? Make Trent "I really didn't mean anything racial by my idiotic comments about voting for segregationist candidate Strom Thurmond" Lott the #2 man in the senate.
The boys and girls in the clubhouse seem to think that what happened to Lott was unfair. “He apologized, and he paid a serious price for it,” Maine Sen. Olympia Snowe said. Maybe so. But so what? It’s not about him. Or at least it shouldn’t be. Lott is a bad face for the Republican party. Period. Full stop. If that’s unfair to Trent, boo hoo for Trent. Somebody buy him an ice-cream cone.I'm afraid that party just lost my vote. Christ are they stupid.

And for those of us who are disgusted by everything happening in Washington, Thomas Sowell reminds us of the stakes.
Do we really want far-left Congressman Dennis Kucinich to be chairman of the subcommittee on national security?He writes it up so you don't have to!
This is the same Dennis Kucinich who once introduced a bill “to abolish all nuclear weapons,” who has refused to condemn Hezbollah terrorists, calling instead for us to have a “recognition that connects us to a common humanity and from that draw a flicker of hope to enkindle the warm glow of peace.” Poetic but dumb.

Check this out. Little old Charlottesville goes national due to a loony "political prankster." And check out the Progress' version of events. Be sure to watch the video--that Darden dude that took Mr. Stark down looks to be 65 or so, and is a total badass.
