Precious. Think about this.
Newt Gingrich was a dirty word on Free Republic a year ago.
One could be banned on the ‘no profanity’ clause by speaking his name.
Then Palin decided not to run and the extremely odd cult of Cain worshippers formed, and he dropped out.
Then the Palin/Cain people flocked to Newt, most because of his debate performances and a lot because he stuck it to the press and everyone despises the press.
Then, Newt’s negatives, which were always there, were emphasized in negative ads by Romney and Newt fell dramatically.
I hope you’re not gonna try to say that Rick Santorum was everybody’s favorite before he won Iowa. He wasn’t a blip on the radar. Apparently he spent an entire year in Iowa and won some hearts there.
Now, he’s a candidate with some momentum but not much money or organization.
He’s also a candidate who has never been attacked because he was never noticed.
The attacks begin today. They will be mean and effective.
the lack of enthusiasm you perceive for Perry could switch as quickly as all the other switches have happened.
People seem to be falling for the next candidate in line that they don’t hate.
South Carolina will tell the tale but don’t count Rick Perry out.
