Who is he again?
His move comes a day after a debate in New Hampshire, a state he’ll play for, which he said he would not take part in because he hadn’t yet made up his mind about running.
He’s announcing his campaign in New Jersey, at Liberty State Park — home to the statue — a setting that doesn’t have much to do with his roots or a natural constituency (like, say, a Mitt Romney announcement based in New Hampshire or a Michele Bachmann announcement in Iowa).
But he’s making his move right after the stumble of Tim Pawlenty, who has created an opening for other Mitt Romney alternatives.
I clicked on the Politico link and said to myself, “Huh. So that’s what he looks like. Who knew?!”
Do I need to pay any attention to this guy? I think I’m all stocked up on GOP crazy for the moment.
And what is this T-Paw “stumble”? That he didn’t refer to Obamacare as Obomneycare? That he’s the boring cheese in a fail sandwich? That he is a former mullet-American?
I think it’s foolish to discount T-Paw. He’ll never get Tea Party support, but he was definitely the least crazy sounding of the candidates who are actually running (sit down, Newt) and everybody knows that all the crap going on this early doesn’t mean a damn thing.
I don’t know.
It makes me sleepy to think about it.[cross-posted]
