If You Put Your Hand Up Their Asses

They'll say what you want them to say.

The success that Camp Rudy! has had in getting all serious pundits to marvel at his Wacky Smart strategy of not campaigning anywhere until Florida has been pretty astounding even by the standards of these things.

Rudy for obvious reasons did put a lot of resources into New Hampshire. Until all that campaigning drove down his poll numbers because he's really creepy. And then he stopped bothering. And then they announced this bold strategy of competing in Florida only. And all of these people whose full time job it is to cover this stuff magically forgot the prior 9 months or so and agreed, solemnly, that Rudy has a plan. A cunning plan.
