If I decide to rely on derivative opinions I may look at him more closely.
The Rollins episode caused me to suspend what had been multiple donations to Bachmann, and ended the possibility of any support in the primary. It caused me to regard both her personal integrity and political acumen as less than I had originally thought, as one does not besmirch friends via agents or alienate a significant portion of one’s own political base. To extrapolate from that to a position of “anyone but Bachmann”, even within the context of the announced primary candidates we have - is inane.
I don’t care what this guy’s bona fides are or how large his audience is. His conclusion in this article is jackass stupid.
I had decided the rumors months earlier about her aides spreading smears and nasty comments about Palin were unfounded, but I am now seeing those come up in more and more places, including more recent ones such as this.
I know enough about the good perfessor's bonafides to tell you he would not have printed this if he had not looked hard and seen this was true. He's got a sound critical mind and simply does not print things that he makes up, or hopes are true.
I have no problem with anyone but Bachmann, but have to include Romney along with her. My reasons are multiple, not just the nasty tone that is coming from her campaign workers. And yes, I now believe she is complicit with this stuff.
