First Whacked Result

Joel already noted Huckabee's win in West Virginia. That's not so weird. Here's the weird part: According to the NYT, McCain got 1% of the vote.

One percent?!?

Ah, smell that? That's Republican unity, baby!

Well, that's on the 2nd round of balloting. McCain got about 15% of the vote in the first round (3rd place), and thereafter directed his supporters to back Huckabee.

In the 1st round, Romney won 1st place with 41%, with Huckabee in 2nd at 33%. But thanks to McCain, Huckabee won the final round. Romney is pissed and complaining about "backroom deals."

Thanks, Verso. I'd forgotten about that sort of permutation.
