The race to the rear

Posted By on Tue, Jun 2, 2009 at 5:09 PM

No Republican can muster more than 22 percent in polling for a GOP nominee in 2012, but our man Mike Huckabee notches the 22, one statistically insignificant point ahead of Caribou Barbie and Mitt. Newt scores at 13.

Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty, coming to Ark. later in June, said today he won't seek re-election, spurring speculation that he'll enter the presidential race. If that happens, further speculation is that he'll curry favor with the Republican base by forcing Al Franken to sue until there's a Democratic majority on the U.S. Supreme Court to get a seat in the Senate. Though that kind of anti-democratic behavior can cut both ways.
