Florida, Florida, Florida

McCain wins -- even in a state that only permits registered Republicans to cast ballots. Either Floridians are more moderate than the rest of the Republican party or the Republican party is more moderate than its Limbaugh wing. I imagine Romney supporters will claim McCain played dirty. They might want to consider the fact that a flip-flopper from Massachusetts simply doesn't play well.

Meanwhile, Giuliani completed his historic crash and burn. He's done now. I'd be surprised if he even bothered to actively compete in Super Tuesday. What's the point?

And it looks like we have another super strong Ron Paul showing. It must be a conspiracy. Or, you know, maybe he's just not that great of a candidate.

Also of interest, Hillary Clinton won the blue ribbon for most recognizable name. That didn't stop her from pretending as if the delegate-less Florida was a big win. Of course, Obama would have done the same if he'd managed to pull out a victory. In the end, it's a nice photo-op for Clinton but it changes nothing. Super Tuesday is where it's at and where we'll find out if Obama can really compete or if he's just a great story.

And now, the big week begins. Everything heads to Super Tuesday where maybe the Republicans will wrap things up. Most likely, we'll still be left with questions even next week.

Let us look at McCain’s conservative credentials:

-IMMIGRATION: he wrote the bill granting amnesty to illegal immigrants (co-sponsored by Ted Kennedy)
-SOCIAL SECURITY: he voted to give your social security money to illegal immigrants
-TAXES: he voted against the Bush tax cuts multiple times (he has since flip-flopped and has campaigned as a lifelong tax-cutter)
-RHETORIC: he routinely engages in Democratic class warfare against big companies in America, particularly the “evil” drug companies who research cures to debilitating diseases for a profit
-ECONOMY: as recently as December 2007 he admitted “he does not know the economy very well” and needed to get better at it
-1ST AMENDMENT: he wrote the McCain-Feingold campaign finance bill that was declared to be an unconstitutional infringement of the 1st Amendment (co-sponsored by ultra-liberal Democrat Russ Feingold)
-2ND AMENDMENT: he was called the “worst 2nd amendment candidate” by the president of the NRA
-ENERGY TAX: wrote a bill (co-sponsored by his buddy Lieberman) imposing a massive tax on energy which, according to the Department of Energy, would drastically raise the price of gasoline and put 300,000 Americans out of work
-GLOBAL WARMING: supports radical global warming legislation which involved him voting with every Democrat; think only America is responsible to take action, not other superpowers
-JUDGES: he joined forces with Democrats (Gang of 14) to block the Senate Republican’s attempt to confirm conservative, strict constructionist judges
-WAR ON TERROR: fought with Hillary Clinton to demand that terrorists be given a full American trial
-GAY MARRIAGE: he joined liberals to fight against a federal marriage amendment supporting the institution of traditional marriage
-CHRISTIANS: campaigning in 2000, he famously described Christian leaders as “agents of intolerance”
-PRO-LIFE: he filed an amicus brief against pro-life advocates in Wisconsin
-BI-PARTISANSHIP: he met with leading Democrats in 2004 to discuss the possibility of being John Kerry’s Vice-President
-PROFESSIONAL ETHICS: ringleader of the infamous Keating 5 ethical scandal which cost US tax payers $160 billion (Google it)
-PERSONAL ETHICS: McCain cheated on his first wife after she had a severe accident that left her partially disabled. He then divorced her and married his multi-millionaire mistress, whose daddy bought McCain a spot in the Congress

Florida, what did you do?
