Well, for one thing, I’m sure that it’s not ethical to make a public spectacle out of turning on your candidate just six days before the caucus. And it’s certainly not cool to break up via text message.
Kent Sorenson, an Iowa State Senator who endorsed Michele Bachmann back in March, and who became Chair of that State’s Bachmann campaign for President, evidently attended a Bachmann rally in his hometown of Indianola on Wednesday afternoon, hen let his former campaign know of his intention to switch his endorsement from his car on the drive to a Des Moines, Iowa Fair grounds rally for Ron Paul .
Seriously,how did he do it? With a “CUL8R MB”?
Sorenson then made a pretty spectacular announcement at the Paul rally (video, here).
We’re now seeing the “he said/she said” accusations that Sorenson betrayed Bachmann for money offered by the Paul campaign. Sorenson, Paul and Bachmann should all realize that we will eventually see any donations or payments made to Sorenson or his future campaigns by the Paul campaign.
Just to make sure that this is not about Romney, the Boston Globe dedicated the second part of the report on the defection to Bachmann’s criticism of Governor Rick Perry. Even if we Republicans didn’t “shoot our own,” the media will skew the story for maximum circular firing squad effect.
