Huckabee Wins in West Virginia

Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee won today's Republican convention vote in West Virginia, a sign that his presidential bid may exceed expectations in today's Super Tuesday elections.

The AltTulsa team has been predicting Huckabee as a favorite of Oklahoma Republicans for weeks, though recent polling has put Arizona Sen. John McCain in the top spot.

Oklahoma polls haven't closed yet tonight, so we have no information yet on Huckabee's performance here. But if West Virginia is any indication, Huckabee may come on strong in the Sooner state.

"Sources say that representatives for John McCain called many of his reps in WV and asked them to vote for Huckabee...in order to thwart Romney on the second ballot."

Very crafty.

Meanwhile, Limbaugh and Coulter try to pilot the clown car over the cliff. Of course, they have parachutes.
