Well, the Tea Party is less popular than Atheists and Muslims, so perhaps it not much of a surprise that their patron saint has taken a nosedive. My guess is the money will start to dry up and she will wither away, but perhaps not before a primary or two. I can handle a primary that consists of Huntsman, Gingrich, Perry and Romney. Maybe even Cain. They’ll have the next few months to work on their messaging before they hit the big show, and lord knows they need it, but I wouldn’t expect any late entries by Christie or Palin. I’d be surprised if they entered. We’ll see.
