RUSH: They’re projecting that Huckabee has come from nowhere to win in West Virginia. Now, originally get 50% there, and Ron Paul was out after the first vote, and it was Romney, Huckabee, and I think Romney had 30%, Huckabee at 16%, and McCain — so obviously — well, I can’t say obviously, I don’t know, but it seems like the Huck forces got together with the McCain forces, and the McCain forces sent his forces to the Huck forces, and that’s how they defeated Romney in West Virginia. I don’t know that, but I wouldn’t be surprised.


RUSH: We know a little bit more here about what happened in West Virginia — and, folks, it underscores what many of us have been saying about collusion between the Huck forces and McCain forces. After the first round of balloting in the West Virginia caucus, nobody got 50%, but Romney led with 41%. Paul was out of it. So it was Romney, it was Huckabee, and then McCain, in that order. What has happened is that McCain forces have joined Huck forces, and that’s how Huckabee has won West Virginia. Now, McCain and Huck forces are denying that there was collusion. But who cares? It doesn’t matter what they say. The fact — what this proves — is that a vote for Huck is a vote for McCain. Because the Huck forces, whether by request from McCain forces or whether on their own, McCain forces decided to throw in with Huck forces en masse. So the combination of McCain forces and Huck forces overwhelm Romney, who had 41%. So a vote for Huckabee is a vote for McCain.

Now, folks, it’s Super Tuesday. Now, folks, look. It’s about 2:34 p.m. Eastern Time, on Tuesday afternoon, Super Tuesday. If anybody thinks that I’m trying to influence votes today, you have another thing coming. That’s not the purpose here. I know everybody in the Drive-Bys thinks so. I’m telling you what I believe. It’s what I have done each and every day behind this Golden EIB Microphone, and what they don’t understand is I’m having more fun than a human being should be allowed to have with all this. I know a lot of my people, friends of mine, are taking this really personally, and they’re down in the dumps over it and so forth, but you have to know what you can control and what you can’t control, and you certainly can’t take the things you can’t control personally. If you reach out and try to take control of too much, it’s going to be a disappointment as well. Then we’re back into hope. I don’t want to go back there.
