Anyone Know...

...if Fred Thompson and Rudy Giuliani plan to show up for this election? I keep hearing they're viable but shouldn't they at least be getting support out of the single digits even in states where they haven't campaigned much? In Michigan they both got under 5% of the vote.

Giuliani is, of course, betting on his "late state" strategy, which is kind of like not buying any property in Monopoly until you land on Boardwalk and Park Place. Sounds like an OK plan until you realize everyone else already has hotels before you have a house. Romney, McCain and Huckabee have hotels. It may be game over for Rudy.

And Thompson? He's apparently focused on South Carolina -- maybe he's campaigning between naps and snacks. The man has all the dynamism of breakfast toast. I'd be shocked if he even places top three in SC.

What an odd election year.
