Catholics Back McCain in Potomac Primary

Deal Hudson writes at InsideCatholic:
McCain won Catholics in Maryland 59% to 21% over Mike Huckabee. In Virginia McCain won Catholics 73% to 23% over Huckabee. McCain's attractiveness to Protestant voters is about the converse in Virginia, losing 38% to 49% to Huckabee, but in Maryland winning Protestants, 51% to 37%. When the "born-again" Protestants are scored separately, McCain loses to Huckabee 33% to 54% in Maryland, and 31% to 60% in Virginia.

Wow! What great facilities they have here on the Titanic! What a great ship this is! Yep, this is the best ship ever -- sure to beat every other ship ever built!

What an unmitigated DISASTER these pro-McCain people like Deal Hudson have brought down upon us. You think Hillary has been getting pounded these last few days, losing by 30 point margins, 21 states to 10? Just wait till Obama starts popping McCain upside the head, and dancing and weaving, like a young Mohammed Ali at his prime against an over-the-hill, past-his-prime old-timer who can barely get up off the stool.

The comparison of Obama's roaring victory rally with 20,000 strong and enthusiastic people ready to march, with McCain's monotone funeral wake at a hotel conference room with a couple dozen bystanders and a few moderate dinosaurs standing behind him, could not be starker. An inspiring leader McCain ain't.

All those centrist voters that McCain is counting on -- those that made him supposedly the "most electable" -- are all going to run to catch the Obama love train. Meanwhile, the McCainiacs are doing their best to alienate the right, rather than reconciling.

It's going to be ugly.

Both Obama and Clinton received more Catholic votes than McCain. McCain was the third choice of Catholics after the two Democrats.

Apples and oranges. First, McCain wasn't running against Moloch and Lady MacBeth. Second, are we talking about Catholics or "Catholics"?
