Bitter is arguing we should rally around John McCain in Michigan, where Fred isn’t polling well, in hopes of knocking Mitt the Shit out of the race.
If Mitt doesnâ€™t win Michigan, even though he has more delegates than anyone else right now, heâ€™s lost the momentum he needs to go into Super Tuesday as a truly viable candidate. Donâ€™t get me wrong, heâ€™d still spend his money like crazy, but politically, the GOP mainstreamers are going to be more open to shopping for a new candidate – and that could be Fred since McCain seems to have a few more enemies.
Read the whole thing. I agree with Bitter’s analysis. Michigan is Mitt’s other home state. Mitt should have won New Hampshire, hands down, but he didn’t. He should, if his candidacy is remotely viable, be able to win his real home state of Michigan, a state that elected his father Governor. I think if Mitt can’t win Michigan, it casts some very serious doubt on his viability as a candidate, and the GOP machine just might get behind another candidate. We can only hope.
