Hewitt's Law:

Everything Hugh Hewitt has ever written, or will ever write, will ultimately be proven wrong.

John points us to Hewitt's latest, in which he informs us that

Rush gave a speech at CPAC today that will be talked about for years and even decades.

Now, I think, would be a good time to dust this bad boy off:

Mitt Romney's "Faith in America" speech was simply magnificent, and anyone who denies it is not to be trusted as an analyst. On every level it was a masterpiece. The staging and Romney's delivery, the eclipse of all other candidates it caused, the domination of the news cycle just prior to the start of absentee voting in New Hampshire on Monday --for all these reasons and more it will be long discussed as a masterpiece of political maneuver.


Rarely does American politics have such clear, positive breakthroughs --though political history is littered with the remains of many campaigns that blew up in a single day. But this was one such day. Romney's GOP opponents are shaking their heads, and at Team Clinton, they are very worried indeed, imagining a closing night acceptance speech in Minnesota that does again what Romney did today: Appeal to our better angels and our common history to urge America to persevere in difficult times, true to the ideals which launched it, and which allowed it to survive civil war and foreign attack.

They are worried about the return of a Reagan-like communicator to the GOP ticket, and they are right to be alarmed.
