I’m hearing that GOP front runner Rick Hill is striking out–left, right and center– in his search for a running-mate.
Word is that several notables have turned him down, perhaps worried about his baggage (meaning, his winkie getting dipped and sipped, at the sip and dip).
It’s unusual to see a guy leading so strongly in fundraising and yet having trouble finding a date to the dance.
Then again, its not like he’s got any urgency in the matter. The eight dwarfs– meaning Essmann, Miller, Fanning, Livingstone, Turiano, Lynch, Stapleton, and whoever the eighth guy is-are not presenting much of a threat.
But if you ever have the opportunity to hang out in GOP circles (incognito, in my case) you will invariably hear a refrain that goes something like this: “Hill is not the right guy,” says the local GOP person, with his nose a little bit crinkled and a slight squint to his eyes. You hear it over and over again.
Which is all good news for Steve Bullock.
