Earlier this week, I expected the anti-John McCain factions in the GOP to make one last push. Call it a Battle of the Bulge-type offensive, to use a really bad analogy. Rush Limbaugh was supposed to turn up the heat, Citizens United was reported to be launching an anti-McCain ad buy and Human Events was said to be dropping the dossier on McCain’s checkered history with the party.
But what did we get? The only thing that made real waves was Ann Coulter’s pledge to support Hillary Clinton if McCain is nominated. It was a great item to get Coulter in the news for a day, but hardly enough to derail McCain.
So here we are: three days before Super Tuesday, and it’s beginning to increasingly look like McCain might sweep. Don’t believe there will be brooms on Tuesday? Check out the links below. McCain will take California and the Tri-State area, and according to NRO could edge Mike Huckabee in the South.
