So I Was Wr…Wr…Not Exactly, Totally Right
Of course, Rick Perry will not be the next president. In fact, since he apparently knows when to hold ’em, and more importantly right now, when to fold ’em, he will no longer be in the race 48 hours from now. Michelle Bachmann, apparently at this point, lacks such knowledge…
But in one sense, of course, I was…closer to right. Conceptually, I was right, just had the wrong guy, of course, as Rick Santorum proved to be—out of the absolute blue, of course—the person who grabbed the mantle of “not Romney and not Paul”. Now, can he sustain that momentum? Remains to be seen. Paul is a non-factor long-term, as I’ve long argued. Romney’s front-running status was enhanced last night, but he’s not the inevitable nominee, given the “Romney Ceiling”, given the obvious fact that conservative Republicans en masse don’t trust him, though I think most of them find him an acceptable alternative to Obama.
So all of that said…go, Rick!
