McCain Is Winning. Should he thank Limbaugh?

John McCain has pulled ahead of both Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama in a national poll released earlier today.  McCain leads Hillary 48-40 and Obama 46-40.  Maybe there's more to McCain's candidacy than meets the eye.

On the other hand, maybe Rush Limbaugh deserves the credit along with his willing accomplices, Clinton and Obama.  Rush was positively giddy on his show today.  Before the Texas and Ohio primaries, Rush urged Republicans in both states to cross over and vote for Clinton in the hopes of keeping that bloody primary battle going.  Republicans did cross over, Hillary won those states and continues to fight on, though it seems impossible that she could collect enough delegates to win.  Rush's tactics, dubbed "Operation Chaos," seem to be working.

Wasn't conventional wisdom telling us that McCain couldn't count on conservative talk radio?
