BREAKING!!! Mitt Romney just surpassed John McCain's 2008 vote total

From Eric Dondero:
Well, looks like some D.C. pundits, the ones who said Romney ran a worse campaign than McCain, now have a little crow to eat.
Dave Wasserman, a true junkie among political junkies, works for the Cook Political Report. He Tweeted this over early this morning:
Dave Wasserman ‏@Redistrict New Riverside, CA votes propel @MittRomney to 59,958,646 votes, surpassing McCain's 59,948,323 total in 2008: Google Vote Total Spreadsheet
Late reporting counties from scattered California has put him over the top.
Interestingly, Wasserman has also been pushing the line that the Mia Love race in Utah and the Sally McSally race in Arizona are still not over, and that there's some glimmers of hope for Republicans to still gain those seat.
Personally, I don't see it. I think Wasserman is just doing a Dick Morris, fishing for hits. But we can hold out some hope.

1. John McCain didn't run for president in 1988. The GOP nominee was George H.W. Bush w/J. Danforth Quayle IV.

2. The LP nominee was Ron Paul whom Eric worked for in that presidential campaign.

I see you corrected the headline for the date after I posted. Good to see you heeding correct information.

Now try this principle on libertarianism in foreign policy.

Don't get ahead of yourself, Allah.

Spotting a typo in a headline is what - fifth grade level? Congrats, but you're a decade delayed. You still haven't demonstrated reliable critical reasoning skills.
