    It is 11:09pm, and Rick Perry needs to run not walk away

    I guess I don’t understand the world of big time bloggers and CNN commentators who support presidential candidates.

    I thought that if you support a candidate, you don’t go out of your way to turn people against your candidate.

    But what do I know?

    I’ll give Rick Perry some unsolicited advice, similar to what I gave Michele Bachmann and others about Ed Rollins:

    Run, don’t walk, away from people who put their own self-aggrandizement and ego ahead of your campaign’s best interests.

    As sad as Erickson is, it isn’t the real story. The real story is Florida moving it’s primary up. Thing is the only reason I have heard so far that makes any sense is that this is a move to prevent any other candidates from entering the race be it Palin, Christie or any of the other potentials.

    The claim that this is to increase Florida’s importance is silly as by doing this they lose half their delegates, thus making Florida less important in the primary. If this is an example of what the republican party has to offer then who really cares if Obama has another 4 years. A corrupt political party is corrupt no matter what name it goes by.

    This sums up perfectly the feelings many have towards Erick Erickson at this juncture:

    (Oh yes, in the RedState straw poll, his candidate is getting clobbered.)

    I was reading through some of the comments on Erikson’s childish posts, and one commentor nailed it. Paraphrasing, the person said, “It’s all about making Erikson feel good and Palin supporters feel bad.” And that’s pretty accurate I’d say. The guy is probably banned now.

    It’s amazing how much Red State has slipped. I’m not sure if Erikson and the other front pagers are to blame or their snarky ‘frequent commentors’ or Erikson’s CNN gig. But it’s not a place I go to for information anymore.

    Florida did the same thing last cycle, so doing the same stupid thing again is probably more evidence of simple stupidity than of conspiracy for or against any current candidates.

    The buffoons who are pushing it are one Perry backer and one supposed Romney backer. But these are the two candidates with access to major campaign donors all over the country, their networks are well established, so they would benefit more from dragging the campaign out – then it would have to be one of the two of them.

    RedState’s barrage was insulting to Palin, and that was not appropriate or helpful to our cause generally.

    Hmmm, first a blog named Little GREEN Footballs became irrelevant. Now a blog named REDstate is becoming an embarrassment. Please Professor, promise me you will never insert a “color” between Legal and Insurrection.
