What’s the sound of one Republican winning? Silence, if that Republican is Mitt Romney. Ann Althouse asks a related philosophical question:
If Romney won a caucus in the extreme northeast, and nobody noticed, would it mean a damned thing?
Mitt Romney wins Maine, but nobody cares, despite high turnout and a large margin of victory.
The mainstream media have a storyline on the Republican race, and it’s McCain all the way. Anything that doesn’t fit the storyline is relegated to the back pages, if it makes it into the news at all. (In The New York Times, it didn’t.)
