There are two candidates still waiting, either of whom could shake up the Republican primaries big time.

It’s impossible to read the tea leaves on whether Sarah Palin is running, but it seems increasingly likely that Rick Perry is running.

How much longer can they wait?

Bonus question:  If Palin is not running, what’s the...

No of course not.   Margaret Thatcher is not in good health, rarely goes out or receives visitors, and therefore had to miss the dedication of a statue of Ronald Reagan in London:

It was a fitting occasion for the 4th of July. A statue of Ronald Reagan was unveiled at the American...

Not a fan of Ed Rollins, but you know that.  I guess this qualifies as Part 3 of the “Hey Ed Rollins, you deal with it” series.

More than not being a fan of Ed Rollins, I keep questioning why Michele Bachmann started her campaign by having Rollins attack Sarah Palin in very demeaning...

A very bizarre attack on federal gun laws (actually the Second Amendment) and Sarah Palin by Chicago Police Superintendent Garry McCarthy speaking at Reverend Michael Pleger’s church.

And we wonder why the streets of Chicago are out of control?

Maybe this will become the “Hey Ed Rollins, you deal with it” series, after Part 1 regarding the foul Rolling Stone attack on Michele Bachmann went over so well.

This is how they do it, but you know all about that Ed, because you did it too:

Your candidate is getting the predictable Palin-treatment, but of course, you have so pissed off Palin supporters, you deal with it.  After all, you are a serious campaign consultant.

Michele Bachmann’s Holy War, at Rolling Stone, has this image accompanying the article, which says pretty much all you need to know:

Sarah Palin passed on the opportunity to make the kind of insulting comments about Michele Bachmann made by Bachmann’s campaign adviser Ed Rollins about Palin.

When asked (@4:35) whether Bachmann was qualified to be President, Palin answered “she is.”

She is classy, and understands that the way to defeat Obama — regardless of...

A week ago The Guardian reported that Margaret Thatcher was refusing to meet with Sarah Palin, attributing a quote to an “ally” of Thatcher as follows:

Lady Thatcher will not be seeing Sarah Palin. That would be belittling for Margaret. Sarah Palin is nuts.

Michele Bachmann should not be enjoying all the praise the Palin haters are throwing her way, for they don’t really mean it, except as a tool to “shut the door” on Palin.  Example:
