Mitt Romney recorded an impressive win in the Michigan primary tonight. Hats off to him. Now here’s hoping that Fred Thompson surges back to take South Carolina and Rudy makes a comeback with a Florida victory. It will drive all the pundits mad, simply mad – especially those in the MSM beginning to mourn McCain’s demise. Can you imagine it? The phrase “Republican frontrunner” will set off unending fireworks on all the cable news programs.
So should the word “momentum,” which professional and amateur prognosticators appear to have put too much stock into this far. Huckabee’s Iowa win got him what? Back-to-back third-place finishes. And McCain went from one week as the New Hampshire darling to badly beaten in Michigan the next. So who will be the first to mistakenly suggest that Romney’s impressive victory tonight will sweep him forward in the Palmetto State on Saturday?
