How much is Rove paying Duncan Hunter to take the HEAT?
This guy has no chance. The other republicans in the field are more moderate. I think Rove is paying the guy to throw his hat in and be the host for media scrutiny, thus letting the other candidates off the hook and provide cover. Its like being a diversionary candidate.

Same thing happened in 2000 when guys like Steve Buyer and the five other freaks tossed their hat in. They had no chance and provided cover for Bush. There idiocy made Bush look good.


Did Rove promise Hunter a presidential pardon if he runs for the presidency?

1. Oh, every four years somebody who has no chance of being
nominated and no chance of winning decides to run. I doubt Rove has anything to do with this.

2. You don't think the Republican thugs gather in a smoky back room
and decide who will run and who won't, who to put up as diversions and who should go up to prove their not racist or women hater's?

I do.
