Rush Limbaugh's First Shots at Huckabee  —  So everybody and their brother is listening to Rush today, wondering if he'll take a shot at Huckabee after an unnamed Huckabee aide in DC criticized Limbaugh...  The first comment, moments into the show: “You want to whine like Mike Huckabee's whining …
The Corner:
RE: Bye, Bye Mike  —  Regarding that Huckabee advisor's soon-to-be-regretted comments about Limbaugh, Huckabee actually encourages people in his book From Hope to Higher Ground: 12 STOPs to Restoring America's Greatness to “listen to less talk radio” as part of his “12 Action Steps to STOP Being Cynical.”

Rush goes nuclear on Huckabee?  Update: Audio added  —  Bryan's headline yesterday said it all.  Geraghty has a list of choice quotes from today's tirade — “McCain's starting to look better to than this guy, and that's saying something” jumps out — but the partial transcript suggests …
Ed Morrissey / Captain's Quarters:

Witnesses recall Romney-MLK march  —  Shirley Basore, 72, says she was sitting in the hairdresser's chair in wealthy Grosse Pointe, Mich., back in 1963 when a rumpus started and she discovered that Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and her governor, George Romney, were marching for civil rights — right past the window.
Michael Luo / New York Times:
Romney Learns That ‘Facts Are Stubborn Things’  —  FORT DODGE, Iowa — There was the period last spring when Mitt Romney claimed while campaigning in Iowa and New Hampshire that he had been a hunter “pretty much all my life,” only to have to admit later he had seriously hunted on only two occasions.

THE “SCANDAL” THAT'S RIDICULOUS … That claim is incontestable. … The AP story is titled: Romney backpedals on statements — again. … Via Hugh Hewitt.
