Not too much is being made in the media over the out and out slug-fest between Romney and McCain:

Mitt Romney and John McCain accused each other Monday of being liberals, a charge tantamount to blasphemy in the caustic campaign for the Republican presidential nomination.

One day before the crucial Florida primary, Romney lambasted the Arizona senator for a host of "liberal answers" to the country's problems.

He added, "The truth is, Mitt Romney was a liberal governor of Massachusetts who raised taxes, imposed with Ted Kennedy a big government mandate health care plan that is now a quarter of a billion dollars in the red, and managed his state's economy incompetently, leaving Massachusetts with less job growth than 46 other states."

McCain told a Jacksonville audience that Romney has been "entirely consistent," then quipped: "He's consistently taken at least two sides of every issue, sometimes more than two."

I wonder where our media is over their epic and nasty fight to win Florida? I guess they don't feel the need to report all that much on the Republican primary knife fight it would appear.
