We have some more splendid news from the Greatest Show on Earth (2012 GOP primary). Not only is Michele Bachmann almost 100% in, she’s hired a real pro, Ed Rollins, who ran Mike Huckabee’s almost victorious 2008 race. And as I’ve said before, if Palin doesn’t run, she will be my front runner for Iowa.
Which makes this quote from Ed Rollins today, well:
“Sarah has not been serious over the last couple of years,” Rollins told Brian Kilmeade on his radio show, Kilmeade and Friends. “She got the Vice Presidential thing handed to her, she didn’t go to work in the sense of trying to gain more substance, she gave up her governorship.”
He suggested that the contrast would favor Bachmann.
“Michele Bachmann and others [have] worked hard, she has been a leader of the Tea Party which is a very important element here, she has been an attorney, she has done important things with family values.”
“She is probably the best communicator [in the GOP field] now that Mike Huckabee’s not in there,” he said.
Oh, you just know that Sarah Palin is going to come back swinging, because that’s all she knows how to do. Which means that we can now sit back and watch an epic battle of Crazy vs. Crazy, Tea vs. Tea, Real Amurka vs. Real Amurka.
Also, PPP polled Round III of “The Show”, finding that Romney is actually leading in South Carolina:
Yikes, that isn’t good news. Especially with the new WaPo poll showing Romney and Obama in a dead heat. But never fear, the GOP base will eat him alive over the next 7 months.
In other bad news, HermanCainia hurt his GOP street cred, saying that he would actually hire a qualified gay person in his cabinet. However, he did somewhat save himself by adding this qualifier:
So yep, I don’t have a problem with appointing an openly gay person. Because they’re not going to try to put sharia law in our laws.
Amen. This is the kind of common sense thinking that has HermanCainia sweeping the nation
In the meantime, Palin’s response in 10… 9… 8…
