With Limbaugh telling his peeps to vote for Hillary in Texas and the media suddenly examining the way it's covered Obama--I'm having this little feeling that our media is hoping Clinton wins Ohio and Texas by big enough margins so the primary keeps churning along.

Limbaugh has been actively urging his Texas listeners to cross over and vote for Clinton in that state's open primary Tuesday, arguing it helps the Republicans if the Democratic race remains unsettled for weeks to come.

"I want Hillary to stay in this…this is too good a soap opera," Limbaugh told fellow conservative talk-show host Laura Ingraham on Fox News Friday. He reiterated the comments on his Monday show and replayed the exchange with Ingram.

Go and vote for your candidate today. I hope we have a winner after tonight so we can focus in on the real problem: McCain and BushCo. and what they have and will do to our country

And as Duncan notes,

I'm too lazy to track down an example right now, but a couple of times I've seen this kind of "they still won't come out for the general election" idea, mostly directed at supposedly young Obama supporters but somewhat across the board. That, needless to say, is beyond absurd.

I think I heard Kinky Friedman on BillO's show say that the old people beat out the youngsters every time. The turnout has been amazing on the Democratic side and will play out this way in the general election and McCrazy will be behind in cash as well.


Rather, I think we're seeing the evidence that the media has decided that Obama is now the presumptive nominee, and having built him up he must be taken down to make the way for St. John McCain (something I wrote about on February 20).
