1. Before Rudy Giuliani attends a town hall meeting into the delegate-rich state of Delaware Thursday, he'll partake in a bit of fundraising. He's hosting a two-tiered event at the University of Delaware's Goodstay Center in Wilmington. For $1,000, you can watch Rudy dine on eggs and bacon and get a VIP pic and attend a private meet and greet. For $250, you get breakfast. If you're under 35, you need to pay only $150. The event is hosted by Newcastle Co. GOP chair Tom Ross. Ohboyohboyohboy look at this list of Giuliani bundlers. Some Pioneers and Rangers, but lots of new money. That's a good thing for Rudy.

5. Gov. Mike Huckabee gives fashion advice:
Q: I read that you're against miniskirts.
A: If a person dresses provocatively, they're calling attention -- maybe not the most desirable kind -- to private parts of their body.
Q: What about a burka?
A: No, that hides everything. I think a person's hair, arms, shoulders, legs are an appropriate display of who they are. I want people to be attracted to me because they find me interesting, not because I'm wearing something ... well, I doubt I own anything provocative.
Q: How about a minskirt?
A: A thong.
