More on McCain...

Wait! There's more on McCain's travails in Washington state. Apparently the skipper DID eke out a win--a win declared BEFORE all the results were in and at a time when maybe a couple hundred votes separated McCain and Huckabee. McCain got an assist from the caucus chairman, a man named Esser, whom Josh Marshall has lampooned as a corpulent and corrupt southern-style "boss." The plot gets thicker when you discover Esser is a close friend of the McCain state chairman in Washington...anyway, you should go over to TPM and read all the sordid details for yourself. Needless to say, Huckabee campaign lawyers are on the scene as we speak.

Somehow, I recall that the GOP has a history of cutting off the vote total in close races when the result they want has been achieved...don't you remember reading about that someplace?

Funny...a few Seattle PI bloggers were also mentioning today how the GOP likes to stop counting ballots when the desired result is achieved. Seems like Huckabee should be focusing on bigger problems.

Ah yes, Washington State's controversial ballots during the Gubernatiorial election rank right up there with Florida's hanging chads of 2000 and Ohio in 2004. It's not very good company at all, regardless of which party's involved.
