NPR's top-of-the-hour news slot gave the soundbite to Obama. I've noticed they've been doing that lately. They'll summarize what Clinton says but give you Obama's actual voice. But today they didn't even bother with Clinton at all.

On the fair side, I think they also gave the soundbite to Romney, but I got distracted ogling the floods on my way to work and can't be sure. (Yep -- I just checked the streaming audio and it's Romney.)

It's going to take them a few days to come up with another narrative (the pundits are also mainlining the Starbucks this morning). Last night's teevee viewing was hilarious; they really didn't know what to make of a U.S. map that had so many different colors on it.

Bonus fun: Glenn Beck's head almost literally exploded. It was like he had an epiphany, that republicans really don't do what they say they're going to do. It was almost Python-esque.

This isn't anywhere in the area code of over.

I am so thankful that Lance drank all that coffee so I don't have to. I have had to avert my eyes from the screen/page/blog for the last few days. Is it safe to look yet?

Call me a flip-flopper but I'm for Hillary/Barack or Obama/Clinton. Just make the pain go away.

The Democrats are divided along age lines (not my wrinkles, I mean by chronological years).

The Republicans are divided along ideologies.

You tell me which is going to go away at the conventions.

(Hint: Think of the conventions as Botox)

I'm in Colorado, a longtime Republican state. (The main reason the Dems have taken over the Legislature and the Statehouse is the fact that Denver is so Democratic.)

The encouraging fact for me this morning is that three times as many Democrats caucused as Republicans, in record numbers, and gave the nod to Obama.

The Repubs voted for the Mittster over St John and Huckleberry by a large margin.

My Repub friends are teh grumpy lately.

Via Kevin Drum comes this pithy note from Mark Steyn at The Corner (I won't sully your comments with a link to that cesspool; link can be found at Kevin's place):

Forget the gaseous platitudes: in Dem terms, their choice on Super Duper Tuesday was deciding which candidate was Super Duper and which was merely Super. Over on the GOP side, it was a choice between Weak & Divisive or Weaker & Unacceptable. Doesn't bode well for November.

When even the hardcore GOPites sound that dispirited, it makes me happy.

KC45s

to reach for my own cheap and easy sports metaphor, is about as divided as Mets fans are going to be over who should start on Opening Day, Pedro or Johann.

Nice. Also makes me think of spring while it's snowing ten inches outside, so double-points for you.

I can see the writing on John McCain's tombstone already: "This is a victory for him."

I generally avert my eyes from MSM, so I can't access the big picture. But, in watching the very end of MSNBC's coverage last night, I noticed that on the Dem side, they all referred to "Barack" and "Hillary" while on the Republican it was "McCain, Romney, Huckabee, and Ron Paul." OK, that's largely due to the distinctiveness of the Dem names; still, it's interesting to try on the opposite: Obama, Clinton...John, Mitt, Mike.

Based on my two morning papers and NPR's Talk of the Nation, I would say the story on the Dem side is "nothing super" for either Dem yesterday. No successes or progress to be seen here - keep moving, people.

Victoria

PS.

I enjoyed this: Ana Marie Cox writes today "Democrats looking for some cold comfort..."

Looking for cold comfort?

14.6 million people came out to vote for Democrats yesterday. Only 8.4 voted for Republicans.

I'm pretty comfortable with that.

Go John McCain. This one was written and recorded by yours truly, just for you!
