While some people pay attention to the alleged contest between Sens. Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama (and she won big), almost unnoticed is the Republican primary.
Many people think Arizona Republican Sen. John McCain has won the GOP nomination.
Actually, he has. A long time ago.
But Texas Rep. Ron Paul's revolutionaries continue to plug away. With 45% of Pennsylvania's 9,268 precincts reporting, Paul has captured 15% of the vote. He's easily beating former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee, who has only 12%.
Two things will moderate joy in the Paul camp. One, Huckabee suspended his campaign and stopped campaigning weeks ago. Yet, he's still getting 12%. And second, McCain is capturing 73% of the GOP vote -- which was apparently reduced by some thousands of Republicans who changed their registration to vote Democratic for Clinton, as ordered by their leader, Rush Limbaugh, to promote further prolonged feuding among Democrats.
On the other hand, Paul will point out, McCain has already won the party's top ticket spot and yet is drawing only 3 out of 4 Republican ballots.

On another note, Butler Shaffer over at LRC wrote an interesting little bit today about April Fools Day, called "A National Holiday?".
I believe that general elections - particularly presidential and congressional ones - should be held on April 1st: All Fools Day. What more meaningful date on which to allow Boobus Americanus to indulge himself in the illusion that his opinions really matter?
