In a close one, St. McCain held off Huckabee for the win. Huckabee slams Romney by saying that McCain won without the both of them "attacking each other." Too bad for Huck. I was rooting for you.

On FOX, wingnut LA Talk radio host Larry Elder said McCain is OLD! You can see the hatred of McCain begin to seep out from the base...

Via Email :

In 2000 McCain took 237,888 votes in South Carolina. Tonight he has just over half those number of votes with 134,474 as I write this. Republican turnout will be well below where it was in 2000. More than 100,000 votes short. With five Republican primaries, Rudy Giuliani has half the number of votes of Ron Paul.

I'll have more on the Democratic Party soon, but Steve has a great point:

Let me say this again. The Republicans and the media are trying to divide the Democratic party by stenographically advancing false charges of racism and sowing the seeds of division by keeping voters mis-informed. We need to be aggressive in fighting this venomous nonsense every day.

Cillizza tries to make sense of the delegates...Digby says: Caucuses are always ridiculous and should be done away with. We need several rotating regional primaries.

Can you help us out?
