The most anticipated candidate since Reagan is done. He's not planning to attend the Florida debate.
His campaign never got started, and now it's petering out. Disgraceful. And this is a case whee it really is all the candidate's fault. in the end, this long time actor couldn't even act like a candidate.
Clearly, he expected to waltz into the nomination by near unanimous acclaim. Didn't he know he's the flabbiest lookin' White Knight ever?!?
And now what's left of the campaign is making noises that he'd make a great vice president – that he'd "fill in some of the gaps" (as one commentator put it) of whoever did get the nomination.
Uh, Freddie, that's what every VP choice is about, so the question is, will you be the best one to fill in those gaps? I don't know, will you show as much enthusiasm for that job as you did when running for president? Probably.
Will you bring the same level of knowledge and ideas? Probably.
And if, say, Romney gets the nod, exactly what would you be complementing?
And if McCain or Huckabee were the nominee, you could complement till the cows come home and the Republicans will still lose. Huckabee outright, and in the case of McCain, even if the Republicans win, they lose, even bigger and better than they did with Bush.
Best plan on complimenting Rudy. Giuliani-Thompson, start printing up those bumper stickers now to avoid the rush.
So I think, at least I hope, that Fred's finished – because I'm a little down on him at present, I just conceal it well. Acting!
