He’s the top of my list of the Tim Pawlenty/Scott Walker award for the most underwhelming presidential front runner of 2024.

I think DeSantis' slide really started when he pandered to the Neo-Isolationist Right on Ukraine.

DeSantis' fall from grace has been stunning. I can't remember anything like this. I know you mentioned Scott Walker and Fred Thompson, but at least they fell off after they entered the race.

Is there any difference between the photographs of the Wannabe-Mussolini smiling or looking out into the crowd?

I don't see it.

Ponder this: Trump & DeSantis are the two best that can be offered by a major political party. There is something really wrong with this picture, huh?

Cillizza: "It reeked of pure personal animus — and DeSantis cutting off his nose despite his face."

You mean he's cutting off his nose "TO SPITE his face"

I call it Karma for all his trash legislation against “wokeness.” Next to Trump he’s a real amateur at Republican politics.

As far as a DeSantis presidential run announcement goes , if you stink as an amateur, you will stink even more as a pro. Build a state prison next to a place filled with 1000's of children? What is his campaign slogan going to be? "I am not a idiot, I just play one on TV?".

What’s incredible is that there’s not a credible challenge from any Republican to a guy who spent 2 months brainwashing his supporters into coming to DC to partake in a coup attempt. Republican politicians and their voters are both a blight.
