Sic Semper Tyrannis

Update: when all the poll numbers came in, McCain won.  Blogger guess: Huck and Paul campaigned heavily in rural areas like Lynchburg and C-ville, which may have reported their numbers earlier. 

The state of Presidents only gave 42% of its vote to John McCain (according to Fox News, only 36%) even though he’s the only candidate with a mathetmatical chance of winning the nomination.  Huckabee took 51%, Ron Paul 3%, Mitt Romney 3%, and other candidates or rounding error accounts for the remainder. 

Yes, John McCain, Virginians – a rather red state – would rather throw their votes away on candidates who dropped out, “suspended” their campaigns, or cannot mathematically win the primaries rather than vote for you. 

~To be a Virginian either by Birth, Marriage, Adoption, or even on one’s Mother’s side, is an Introduction to any State in the Union, a Passport to any Foreign Country, and a Benediction from Above.  (Anon.)
