It Ain't Over Till it's Over!

from a World Net Daily article by Janet Folger
Don't count your delegates before they're hatched.
Let me tell you why the race for the Republican nomination is not over yet. Notwithstanding Saturday Night Live skits and political pundits, Gov. Mike Huckabee doesn't need to reach 1,191 delegates to win the nomination - all he has to do is keep John McCain from doing so. And that may have just gotten easier.
A Huckabee nomination isn't so "mathematically impossible" when you consider that he may be the only one who can spend any money in the race from here on out. Highlights from a Friday Washington Post article explain:
· McCain cannot spend without risking violating the Federal Election Commission matching grant rules (he helped create). The limit is $54 million (until the convention in September), and he's "already spent $49 million."
He can't get out of the matching grant program because there isn't an FEC quorum to vote on it.· Knowingly violating the spending limit is a criminal offense that could put McCain at risk of stiff fines and up to five years in prison.

This sure is getting interesting,he's hamstrung by the McCain-Fiengold campaign spending limits, thus McCain is hung by his own petard!!
Here's why Janet tells us not to listen to the pundits:
For example, first they said Rudy Giuliani was the "certain" nominee. But that didn't go so well. Then there was Fred Thompson, who was the media rock star until just about the time he entered the race. Then, with the help of many who mistakenly call themselves "conservatives" and "leaders," Mitt Romney became the "shoe-in." The pundits were also the ones who declared John McCain's campaign "dead on arrival" – after all, "people were fired." The ones who should have been fired were the pundits.
But now, people are starting to see that, and through this process, new leaders are being raised up who know that God is more powerful than the pundits and the polls.
As if opposition to the campaign-finance reform gag rule weren't enough, I'm supporting Gov. Huckabee because I actually believe what we've been saying for three and a half decades: that our goal is to restore legal protection to children awaiting their birthdays, even it takes a Human Life Amendment to do it. And, Gov. Huckabee is the only candidate who shares that view

This is amazing. McCain is being bitten by his own rotten bill.
