And today? Tumbleweeds.
The guy is a US Senate candidate on the Republican ticket for crying out loud, doesn't he want any more national exposure? Where could he be? Wasn't he supposed to be one of the benefactors of our national "throw the bums out" attitude by running against the behavior we so often see in the government halls of Washington? You'd expect him to take advantage of all this free air time.
He couldn't be hiding away somewhere, trying to avoid the spotlight, could he?
JMac at Beyond the Trestle is more charitable to the ol' boy:
It took him less than 48 hours to completely abandon lifelong principles he's advocated for in the public and private arenas. Having been academically curious to the unique Libertian ways of him and his father, I've been dismayed at how quickly he went from principled candidate to shameless panderer ... and I don't even agree with the guy.
