I’m noticing a pattern here: Some outfit conducts a poll, throws Bob Barr’s name into the mix, and reports back that the former Georgia congressman and current Libertarian presidential nominee is scoring somewhere in the mid-single-digits. Then, a bunch of news outlets run the same basic story about how Barr is poised to play Read More

Mitt Romney has won the Nevada caucuses, but it really shouldn’t mean much.
He was the only candidate –besides Ron Paul — to sink significant time and money into the state, where he enjoyed at least one built-in advantage, thanks to Nevada’s sizable Mormon population.
The Romney campaign will now talk up the victory as Read More
