After last night

I give Huckabee maybe another week, then all the "come to Jesus" pressure will become too much for even him.
Still and all that, it has to give the GOP serious pause to note that Ron Paul, Mike Huckabee and John McCain barely wracked up half the turnout of the democrats in last night's Virginia primary.
You'd think number like that might give John McCain reason to think, but no, as soon as he'd won all and sundry he got up there and started whining like a poor mouth bitch about making government small enough so that his richest and craziest supporters could treat it with contempt.
Maybe I'm all stupid-like, but I don't think "small gummint" is gonna fit between the scylla of Bush's imperial wiretapping presidency and the charybdis of the response to Hurricane Katrina.
Trust me, John McCain won't find a way between those rocks.

Let me play devil's advocate for a moment here, maybe we need to take the opposite tack of profligate wiretapping, once a democrat is elected, we could easily (for example) use Bush's war powers to check up on Grover Norquist to see if he is illegally taking campaign contributions from the Saudis.
And that my friends, is just the beginning.
