Wyoming Watch: How to Scorekeep the Wyoming Caucuses [UPDATING]  —  It's Saturday, March 8, and the significant state of Wyoming - one of 50 states that matter - is going to the polls.  —  Consider this both a “how to scorekeep” and live thread, for those in attendance who have returned.

David Paul Kuhn / The Politico:
Mehlman, Rove boost McCain campaign  —  John McCain is getting much more than President Bush's endorsement and fundraising help for his campaign.  He's getting Bush's staff.  —  It's no secret that Steve Schmidt, Bush's attack dog in the 2004 election, and Mark McKinnon …

The O'Reilly Factor: Karl Rove Points To McCain's Adopted Daughter As Example Of McCain's Worthiness  —  It is no longer possible to have your irony meter redline when Karl Rove appears on TV.  He is so beyond the pale, so completely entrenched in his alternative reality that the only thing left …

Tucker Carlson unintentionally reveals the role of the American press  —  (updated below - Update II)  —  The most interesting part of the controversy over Obama advisor Samantha Power's referring to Hillary Clinton as a “monster” — one might say the only interesting part …
Michael J. Totten / Commentary:
Hillary Isn't the Monster  —  I was at first relieved to learn that Senator Barack Obama had chosen Samantha Power as a foreign policy advisor.  Her book A Problem from Hell: America and the Age of Genocide is hardly wishy-washy or leftist, and I concur with Max Boot that it could have been written by a neoconservative.

Mark Steyn / Orange County Register:
Torn between 2 white liberal guilts  —  Well, we will have Hillary Clinton to kick around some more, at least for another few weeks.  The Mummy (as my radio pal Hugh Hewitt calls her) kicked open the sarcophagus door and, despite the rotting bandages dating back to Iowa, began staggering around, terrorizing folks all over again.

Seeing an End to the Good Times (Such as They Were)  —  If history is a reliable guide, the recession of 2008 is now unavoidable.  —  The dismal jobs report released Friday showed overall employment to be lower than it was three months ago.  Every time such a slump has occurred since the early 1970s …
