“Vote for me and I’ll poke George Bush’s eye out!”
“I’m four years old!”
“Arrrr. I’m a tough guy. Arrrr.”
“WE WON!!! … Wait, you mean this isn’t golf?”
A tip of the hat to my dad for sending along this Union Leader article, including the following fascinating tidbit, which helps square Drudge’s earlier assertion that Lieberman would drop out (or at least, that sources said he would “suspend” his campaign) with Senator Joe’s boisterous, overly optimistic fifth-place-victory speech a few hours later:
Sen. Joe Lieberman of Connecticut, sagging to fifth place, rejected advice from some advisers to abandon his bid.
As I just wrote on the Command Post, one wonders whether Lieberman’s advisers will eventually bring their candidate back to his senses, or at least help him with his math. We love you, Joe, but 9 percent is not an impressive finish… and you didn’t tie for third place…
Speaking of the Command Post, here are my contributions from today, my first-ever day manning the Post (all times Eastern): 3:14 PM, 3:21 PM, 6:26 PM, 8:48 PM, 8:58 PM, 9:10 PM, 9:16 PM, 9:32 PM, 9:57 PM, 10:13 PM, 10:41 PM, 11:04 PM.
Yep. I was busy. :) My BrendanLoy.com simulblog is, of course, below.
Elsewhere in the blogosphere, here is a pretty good list of state polls for upcoming primaries. Some are out of date, but some are quite recent, and one presumes more new results will be added as time goes on. The source and date is prominently displayed, so you can judge for yourself; and where possible, multiple recent polls are averaged together to produce an overall figure.
UPDATE: Wonkette observes: “Guess that ‘Joementum’ was a figment of someone’s Joe-magination.” Heh.
