You have to ask yourself: was it the wife?

Causation or coincidence? I wonder if Barack Obama is asking himself that question as he went down to defeat tonight in the big primaries held in Texas and Ohio.

Before tonight, Obama was on tear, having been victorious in every Democratic primary since after Super Tuesday. So what changed? I would chalk up one reason as being Michelle Obama's abrasive personality and big mouth. After telling us how Barack Obama would make us work and how she was proud of her country for the first time in her adult life, I have a strong suspicion that many Democrat voters got rubbed the wrong way; especially in a patriotic state like Texas.

I am by no means saying that Michelle Obama is the only reason the Democrat's Messiah lost tonight, but one cannot help but wonder how many votes he lost tonight because his wife can't seem to keep her trap shut.

Oh, and the Son of Cain locked up the Republican nomination tonight as Mike Huckabee called it quits. Woo hoo.

Good Day to You, Sir

The bad news is we're now even closer to one of those three idiots' becoming President.
