Well, at least he’s former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney’s man.
We love Hugh, he’s a remarkable radio host, and his approach to blogging and leveraging the Internet’s influence is a thing to behold. He’s also out humping a book that he - and all of us who do that kind of thing - wants to see sell well.
But this post is strikes us as absurd. A three-man race? From a New Hampshire poll? In March 2007?
When 75% of the field is essentially ignoring New Hampshire (South Carolina, Florida and Iowa are being taken far more seriously), and surrendered it to McCain and Romney (note to Hugh: not a good thing when a neighboring native son can’t be the top dog in that poll even if McCain’s folks have been living in the state for months).
The reality is the Romney campaign is in trouble. And in trouble in New Hampshire judging by the staff shakeup yesterday. They are burning through their “commitments” like the election was going to be held next Tuesday. Videos continue to pop up that remind us that is the Republican version of a Massachusetts flip-flopper.
And Fred Thompson is sucking all of the air out of the political balloon with one hand tied behind his back.
It may be a three-man race, but if it is, Romney ain’t one of the three. That club’s membership is John McCain, Rudy Giuliani and Thompson’s.
But in reality, it isn’t a three-man race. It’s more like a six-man race that is going to continue well into the summer.
A man of faith in a godless age is hitting Americans where it hurts.
Mr. and Mrs. American Spectator Reader, let P.J. O’Rourke talk sense to your kids.

The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
