Krusty Konservative: Stupid or Brilliant?
Excerpted from this post at Krusty Konservative
There is never a week that goes by where a presidential kandidate isn't somewhere in the Iowa. That said; it looks like there is some unspoken rule that says if your running for president you must squeeze in an Iowa trip right before Easter. Maybe they are picking up an Easter Ham, or maybe there is some special on peeps I don't know about. Next Tuesday Rudy Giuliani comes to Iowa for his first presidential kampaign event, his Des Moines visit will be covered by all the major media outlets. What I find odd is that Mitt Romney and Tommy Thompson will be coming to town the next day, and Thompson is announcing his kandidacy when he comes to town. I don't know whether Thompson's announcement koming on the heels of Rudy's first Iowa visit is brilliant or stupid. Maybe Grubbs & Ko realize that its difficult for their kandidate to generate national press koverage, so by piggybacking off of Rudy's event Thompson might be able steal a few lines in all Rudy's earned media.
