"The Republican Party's not-so-secret weapon always is the Democratic Party, with its entertaining thirst for living dangerously."

by Ken Houghton

Wonder why Obama's Republican support came early? Wolcott lays it out.

Go. Read.

Tom Says: What Wayne Barrett (in the Village Voice article linked by Wolcott) shows is much more a concentration of fire on the front-runner than any outpouring of support for Obama from public wingnuts. That is, Obama is shown at most being damned with faint praise in the context of wingnut attacks on HRC. What I've looked at but Barrett seemingly hasn't is the excess of Republican crossover voting over 2004, which strongly suggests that the outpouring of Republican support for HRC is a phenomenon of McCain's locking up the Republican nomination.
