Virginia Again

VIRGINIA AGAIN….And how about the Republican race? What’s going on there? Answer: the exit polls have Huckabee beating McCain 45%-44%. This is obviously well within the margin of polling error, so McCain might still win. But even in the best case, not by much.

Isn’t that great? I don’t actually want Huckabee to win the nomination, but I’d love to see him continue to humiliate the presumptive nominee as long as possible. Let’s keep that anti-McCain sentiment seething for at least a couple more months, OK?

UPDATE: Damn. CNN calls it for McCain. But still mighty close for a guy that Republicans should be rallying around by now.
