Update: It’s not Crist

http://www.floridatoday.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=/20080828/BREAKINGNEWS/80828015

At a morning press conference to announce his selection to fill a vacancy on the Florida Supreme Court, Crist was asked if he planned to be in Ohio tomorrow.

“I plan to be in Florida,” Crist said.

I didn’t think it would be Crist, anyway, but this seems to confirm it.”

Heads up.

Media is reporting Palwenty cancled an event. So did Demo Tim Kanie last week. It means nothing

Event at Romeny’s sister was planned months ago. It means nothing. Just part of the standard security sweep prior to an event.

Retribution sought for Lieberman
By Alexander Bolton
Posted: 08/28/08 01:15 AM [ET]

DENVER — Connecticut delegates are demanding that party leaders punish Sen. Joe Lieberman, the Democrat-turned-Independent, because of his support of Sen. John McCain (Ariz.), the Republican nominee.

For many of them, Lieberman’s plan to speak at next week’s Republican convention in St. Paul, Minn., is the latest offense from the man who represented their state as a Democrat in Washington for 18 years.

“There has to be some kind of penalty for this sort of thing,” said Martha Aasen, a delegate from Westport, Conn.

Don’t know much about Cantor. But he sounds bright and conservative, and he looks young. All things I am looking for.
I very much do not want a RINO.

I have no buzz...just watching Intrade. It's been Mitt 60-70 and Tim 20-30 all day. At one point they both went to 50 but it's back to the earlier predictions.

"There has to be some kind of penalty for this sort of thing"

No, not really.

He's not in your party anymore. He's not subject to your rules, discipline, or crying.

Pound sand.

My opinion? I can’t stand the made-up word, “Veepstakes.”

Pound sand - better yet, cast another vote for Ned Lamont.

John Bolton would be excellent. The Senate would never confirm him for an appointment, but an elected VP needs no appointment.

Cantor has a lifetime American Conservative Union ration of 96.86. Good enough?

I thought they already kicked him out of the party. What is this, the freakin' Mafia?

There are a bunch of guys surrounding my house with earpieces. They arrived in black SUVs with Maryland license plates.

I just received a call stating that Senator McCain wishes to speak with me this evening and that I should be standing by the phone at 2100 hours EST.

I think it’s me!!!
