“It seems that Republicans have decided that elections are a messy thing,” he laments, after months of debates and eight weeks of primary after primary after primary after primary. Unwilling to crap on McCain — who, if you add all of Mitt’s delegates to his column, has already clinched — here we find Huck near the end of the road doing what he does best: Crapping on the party and in particular the mythical “establishment” that likes nothing more than keeping God-fearing blue-collar average joes like himself down. I said my piece about his brand of resentment politics in the update here two months ago; it’s nice to see him staying true to himself even at the bitter end.

Exit question: Is this rhetoric really doing McCain a favor on balance?
