Top Five

A quick rundown of the posts I have read during my travels around the series of tubes.

- The Nation: Money can't buy you love.
Even the wealthiest candidates can't keep spending $1 million a delegate to maintain losing campaigns for the Republican presidential nomination.

So Mitt Romney has announced that he is "suspending" his spectacularly-expensive bid for a nomination that the blow-dried businessman candidate thought was his for the taking.

If money was all that mattered in politics, the nomination would have gone to Romney. He put an estimated $50 million of his family's money into the initiative, which will probably end up having cost the candidate and his supporters in excess of $100 million.
- Capitol Watch: Finally.
Thanks to Zell Miller, there is a rule to deal with Joe Lieberman.

Lieberman's endorsement of Republican John McCain disqualifies him as a super-delegate to the Democratic National Convention under what is informally known as the Zell Miller rule, according to Democratic State Chairwoman Nancy DiNardo.
After the 2008 elections, Senate Democrats should kick Holy Joe out of their caucus.

- Election Central: A newly released poll from Time magazine.
McCain (R) 41%Obama (D) 48%,
Clinton (D) 46%, McCain (R) 46%
- Think Progress: Sometimes, it seems like Republicans live in a different reality than the rest of us.

- Fan House: Tiki Barber is full of it.
