Waiting for the Prize Fight
The Billion Dollar Candidate is counting his dollars like he always does, while telling you how to spend yours.
I don’t know about you, but I want these primaries to be over before they’ve begun, because I feel like we’re watching the down card fights, and we’re waiting for the prize fight. I’m not downplaying the importance of selecting our nominee, but I want the General Election to be here already.
And sometime prior to August 2012 (my guess by late March), when we know who the nominee will be and the Lombardi Rule takes effect, I’m going all in. And when millions join me, the Billion Dollar Candidate will not seem quite so large.

I thought some of the news today was quite positive. There are many conflicting narratives, a number of which are false.
For instance, it is widely known by people who follow it (by that I mean not reading Pollutico or the Wapo but actually ferreting out information found on the internet) that Sarah Palin has the best ground game in Iowa. As far as I know she hasn’t made any official effort, yet she has the best organization and feet on the ground in Iowa. Better than Romney, Bachmann or anyone. Figure that.
How NH pops up on the radar.
“I don’t think you can take the polls very seriously at this point. Until she announces, it doesn’t mean anything. There are very strong advocates, and they will get out of their chairs if asked and work for her,” Kittredge said. “She’s doing everything she needs to do to be the most serious candidate out there.”
Nashua resident Sandra Ziehm added, “I’ve been told she can’t take New Hampshire, but I think that’s cockamamie. I think she has the fight and she can do it.”
A Palin spokesman didn’t respond to requests for comment.
Rasmussen, who’s never met or spoken with Palin, said he’s got roughly 100 people committed to volunteering for her, and he’s ready to roll out a phone-bank fund-raiser in the near future. He expects her upcoming SarahPAC fund-raising report will reflect her political clout.”
So will we soon find out that Palin has the best ground game in NH?
You gotta love the Sam Cataldo video.

The reason it’s that expensive is because it is much more expensive to sell cancer than food. With the right candidate, it will take much less to defeat either of the Democrats (cancer) each party is poised to nominate and spend a billion to persuade us that we need more cancer than we have already.
We learned that in CA this year when Romney rewarded his biggest individual contributor and most effective fund raiser, Meg Whitman, buy securing for her the nomination of CA governor. She faced arguably the most unpopular Democrat in CA, spent almost $180 million and got clobbered taking the entire GOP ticket down with her.
Nominate the right conservative Republican and next year will be a landslide on much less than $1B. If they don’t and that nominee is running behind Trump in the polls, Trump will run independent with a good chance of winning.
Of course, Trump might endorse the right candidate to run independent, someone like say… oh… I don’t know… Sarah Palin! Jim Demint? Michelle Bachmann?
