    Well this changes everything.

    I can’t believe Jim Gilmore is still in this thing!

  3. Ron Beasley says:

    Was he really ever in?

  4. MarkedMan says:

    Why was Pataki ever in? A mediocre governor at best, and one that most New Yorkers would miss when listing “NY governors of my lifetime”

  5. John Peabody says:

    “Another minnow is winnowed.” The pithiest blog post of all time! Worthy of Cole Porter. My hat’s off to you, Mr. Taylor.

    To quote Dr. Joyner: I wonder where his supporter will go.
