Capt. Queeg and Elmer Gantry steal WVA from Romney

CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) - Mike Huckabee won the first contest declared on Super Tuesday, picking up all 18 national delegates awarded at West Virginia's state GOP convention.

Huckabee bested Mitt Romney, who entered the Mountain State event with the largest bloc of pledged convention-goers. Both men and Ron Paul made in-person appeals to the more than 1,100 convention delegates attending Tuesday's convention.

But the former Arkansas governor beat his Massachusetts counterpart after delegates for John McCain defected to his side.

The first round of voting at the state convention produced no winner, but eliminated Paul after his fourth-place finish.

When it became clear that Romney was going to win West Virginia Queeg's forces defected to Gantry. This was a coordinated move to deny the victory to Mitt Romney.

If there was anyone out there who was shit-all stupid enough not to realize that John McCain is nothing more than a carbon copy of Bill Clinton or to think that Mike Huckabee had any microscopic shred of honor or decency I hope you've had a wake-up call.
