Hugh Hewitt: If McCain's Against Partial-Birth Abortion, I'm For It, And Here's Why It Helps Romney....

Okay, just kidding about partial-birth abortion, but Hewitt's search for the pony continues:

Taking a page from his Michigan strategy, John McCain lets Florida homeowners know he won't be there for them the next time an Andrew comes ashore....

The issue is federal bailouts for people who build homes in areas prone to natural disasters; hurricanes in Florida and earthquakes in California. Hewitt is so in love with Mitt Romney, that he embraces the concept of a National Catastrophe Insurance scheme. Or does he? God only knows what he really thinks, he's just letting his antipathy for McCain go over the edge. If McCain had come out yesterday in favor of such a plan, you know that Hewitt would have decried it as a pander to the voters. How exactly is a National Catastrophic Insurance plan different conceptually from National Health Insurance?

Let me say here that I have found almost all my favorite talk show hosts virtually unlistenable for the last couple months. Rush Limbaugh said the other day that he didn't know if he'd be supporting the Republican candidate this year, to which I say, that's more likely to hurt Rush than it is the GOP nominee. We all know that most of us, whether we're Fredheads or Smitten With Mittens, or Rudy fans or McCainiacs or Hucksters, are going to vote for the Republican in the fall. Some may stay home and feel noble about it, but they'll either suffer the same fate as Naderites in 2000, seeing themselves blamed for a tough loss, or they'll be exposed as irrelevant.

Note that there is some rays of hope among the radio gods: Michael Medved has declined to join his SRN network buddies in McCain bashing, and he's won me as a daily listener. And while my friend Andrea Shea-King's sympathies lie elsewhere, she's not using McCain as a pinata.

See also my longtime blog-buddy, BDP over at the Ankle-Biters:

Make no mistake, this stance hurts McCain in Florida, a state that if he wins makes it much easier for him to get the nomination. But as he did in Michigan - where he rightly said “the jobs (the blue-collar auto industry jobs) aren’t coming back” - he didn’t say something just because the voters wanted to hear it.

Cited for Breaking the Christmas in Cambodia story (at Kerry Haters):

Hugh Hewitt: KerryHaters was on this story a long time ago. How could the elite media not have asked these questions before now?

Ankle-Biting Pundits: Our friends Pat and Kitty at Kerry Haters deserve the blog equivalent of a Pulitzer for their coverage of Kerry's intricate web of lies regarding Vietnam.
