Perry at 16% and Romney at 18%? I thought Perry was supposed to be a has-been’s has-been, sitting in the toilet with polling numbers under 10%.

Do you seriously believe a poll that has Ron Paul at the top? If you actually believe that, I believe I have a spare bridge or two I might like to sell you.

I watched Fred Thompson today and while it was clear that they were discussing the Insider Advantage Poll, no one thought it relevant to mention that Rick Perry is sitting in a strong third position, just behind Romney, and ahead of Gingrich.

This is inexplicable except by assuming that Fox management has set this silence as policy.

IOW, Perry is a close second discounting the loon Paul. I think it is likely that Perry will finish Iowa ahead of everyone in Iowa, even Paul.

In shorthand terms, that’s a win.

I really want to see how Fox handles THAT.

Exactly.

FOX is doing their finger in the dike suppression of a Rick Perry surge to help Romney.

And they don’t care how it looks.

I don’t seriously believe in the intelligence, let alone the sanity, of anyone who would consider putting Ron Paul in charge of anything more important than the local dog-catcher’s office.

That being said, neither do I seriously believe in the intelligence or sanity of anyone who would pick any of the crop of candidates who does not have 10 years of successful experience running a large state, a state that by all objective measures is doing considerably better than most of the other states in the Union.

But hey, that’s just me, I prefer to look at the whole record, the good and the bad, and weigh the total outcome; I really don’t care to fixate like some idiot-savant on some niggling little zit and turn it into some pre-apocalyptic nightmare. I also prefer to pay attention to the walk, not the talk, so I pay very, very, very little attention to the b.s. that passes for “debates” these days and it is beyond belief that anyone with any pretentions to intelligence would pay any more attention to the so-called “debates” than they would to dancing with the stars.
