McCain's "Luck": Clownish Huck

For McCain, Huck's not a spoiler, but the conservative divider, consciously.

For conservatives to let the Republican presidential nomination go to John McCain would be downright insane.

Head to head, conservative Mitt would win easily and maverick McCain would be politically dead.

For McCain, the Huck is a water carrier.

To Mitt, he's a presidential nomination barrier.

The supremely selfish Huck can amuse and entertain, but he cannot win.

His dividing conservatives with a religion-based campaign really is a sin.

In Iowa, the Huck topped Mitt, because he was Iowa evangelicals' pride and joy.

But the Huck can't win and was, is and intends to continue to be McCain's boy.

In New Hampshire, McCain edged Mitt by 3 and the Huck got 16.6.

Without Huck, Mitt would have won. BEWARE Huck's political tricks.

In Michigan, Mitt beat Mccain by 9.5, with the Huck taking 16.5.

That's right, the Huck kept the McCain presidential campaign alive.

In Florida, McCain topped Mitt by 5, with Huck taking 13.5.

AGAIN, the Huck kept the McCain presidential campaign alive.

In between, Huck lost to McCain in South Carolina by 3.

For McCain, Huck's not a spoiler, but the conservative divider, consciously.

Republicans need to realize that McCain and Huck are slick.

Instead of foolishly falling for their old divide-and-conquer trick.
