Romney, Thompson, Hunter take Delegates in Wyoming

Mitt Romney (8 delegates), Fred Thompson (2), and Duncan Hunter (1) all won delegates in the Wyoming Caucus Saturday. I thought I would note that since there has been little to no coverage of the results.

What I think is noteworthy, though, is that GOP candidates Mike Huckabee, John McCain, and Rudy Giuliani didn't even visit Wyoming leading up to the caucus.

Yet, it is Fred Thompson, who did pay Wyoming a visit, that biased media types from Fox News to Politico have labeled as lazy. It seems that not even bothering to campaign in a state when you are supposedly in a national campaign would qualify as lazy. Yet, no such label has been placed on Giuliani, Huckabee, or McCain.

And don't bother to give me the line that the trio didn't make the trip because they didn't think they could win there. Fred spent the weekend in New Hampshire when he knew he wasn't going to come out of single digits in that non-conservative bastion. He could have headed to South Carolina early. He didn't. Why? Because he isn't lazy, folks.

Just remember these sort of facts before repeating urban legends as fact - especially urban legends manufactured by those who have much personally to gain from the acceptance of those legends.
