Hawkeye Review: Show me the money!
Excerpted from this post at Hawkeye Review
"Tactical Distortion" will be used as Chet Culver's last hope to
survive a first term that at best can be described as "incompetent."
It's already happening. HR was the first to profile Chief of Staff
John Frew last June and nothing's changed; expect a dirty campaign
that will be hard fought and well funded by big labor and special
interests. Frew is an expert at attacking the messenger. In fact,
back in 1983 he taught a political workshop sponsored by the Iowa
Freedom Foundation titled: "The Art of Dishing It Out." Show Me the
Money: The first salvo is likely to be fired off January 20th when the
campaign disclosure reports have been revealed. Much like the Food
Network Series Chopped, you can expect at least one gubernatorial
candidate to be declared irrelevant, even if he stays in the race.
More important however, will be the shakeout that naturally occurs and
the anointing of the "front-runner" which isn't a reflection of
organizational strength or polling support, it's all about the money.
