Presidential pickings

Posted By on Mon, Feb 18, 2008 at 11:56 AM

It being G. Washington's Birthday (observed) and all, news seems slow. So here's some presidential highlights:

I HOPE HE DOES: John McCain to build his campaign on the theme that the Democrats were wrong about the war in Iraq.

BATTLIN' BILL: His patience wears thin with a group of anti-abortion protesters. I know the feeling. Been down that road with a gun zany this weekend.

WATERMELON, WATERMELON, WATERMELON RIND: G.H.W. Bush endorses McCain and encourages The Huckster to take a look at the scoreboard and see who's behind.

SOUND FAMILIAR?: Turns out Barack Obama has been channeling another politician with some of his inspiring speechmaking. This sort of thing killed Joe Biden once upon a time. But under Obama Rules, only a shrew would make a fuss about such a thing, particularly if it's OK with the guy Obama has been lifting from. That said, I think the Clinton campaign is wasting its time making an issue of this. It's not likely to turn the trend lines in Wisconsin.

    Some more history on the Little Rock city ordinance that limits candidates for mayor and City Board to raising campaign funds to five months before the November 2018 election. It raises questions not only about Warwick Sabin's fund-raising tactics, but also Mayor Mark Stodola's carryover money.
