Wednesday roundup - Ingraham supports Hillary?

While watching FNC's Greta van Susteren and awaiting a segment on the investigation into Lauren Burk's murder, I saw a segment Greta had pretaped with conservative talk show host Laura Ingraham. When asked what she thought about the Super Tuesday II results last night, Ingraham actually took a portion of the credit for Clinton's victories, saying that she and fellow right-wing talker Rush Limbaugh "decided to get out the vote for Hillary" in recent days. Here's your link to the parallel universe where that comment could be true.

[SIDEBAR: Is the wackiness of this primary seasion the best argument yet for closed primaries, or what? If the purpose of a primary is to determine a party's nominees, then only persons of that party should be able to vote in that party's nominating contest. This strikes me as what Hyundai would call a "DUH" moment. Both sides are talking about the popular vote, but I have to wonder what those numbers would look like if open primaries weren't the rule.]
