This Just In. . . .

I know you've been all a-twitter these past 48 hours but now the waiting is over: Herb the Libertarian came in third out of five candidates, with 1,007 votes. Why, he even beat one of the Democrats. Not even close to winning, of course, with 5.75% of the total. You can find the results here.

These past couple of weeks have been rather a laugh. Republican households have been getting discrete recorded telephone messages from prominent GOP types telling us who the "real" Republican candidate is amongst the two leading Demos. And mailers with the same message to carefully refined mailing lists. But look for this message on any of the candidates' public websites and you will not find a hint of it: no jolly photos with Mike Antonovich, no pro-life ferverinos, no staunch defense of the traditional marriage bond. Just a quiet word on carefully selected answering machines.

One wonders when our stealth Republicans plan on revealing their, uh, "true" positions to their Democrat constituents, not to mention the party bosses. Since there is to be a run-off election we shall have a little longer to wait. Holding my breath in anticipation. . . .
