Primary Follies

John McCain hasn't even clinched the Republican nomination and already the AP and the New York Times are running stories about his volcanic temper and constant cursing.

What do you want to bet the AP and NYT never run any stories about Hillary Clinton's equally well-known propensity for rages and cursing? The AP goes so far as to say that Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama "are not known for such outbursts," which is a complete falsehood in the case of Clinton.

On the Democrat side, in a story sure to generate reaction, longtime Clinton advisor Harold Ickes said today that Obama's wins would be "irrelevant" and that the party's superdelegates would award the nomination to Hillary Clinton.

That would cause a ruckus for the ages, but no possibilities are out of bounds when it comes to the Clintons.

Amazingly, "party elders had not yet determined whether superdelegates should be urged to cast their votes for the candidate who has the most delegates, or the one who won their state or Congressional district, or the winner of the popular vote."

Talk about a recipe for chaos. Pass the popcorn!

Lawrence Kudlow has written an excellent column on "Obama's Gloomy Big Government Vision."

Kudlow: "The Obama spend-o-meter is now up around $800 billion. And tax hikes on the rich won't pay for it. It's the middle class that will ultimately shoulder this fiscal burden in terms of higher taxes and lower growth."

It's an ugly election year, and it's not going to be any prettier after the election.
