The pool of Republicans considering a run for their party's 2012 presidential nomination ("all of them") has been reduced by one: Rep. Mike Pence (R-Indiana) has announced that he's not going to go there.
The consensus is that he'll run for governor of Indiana instead, due to the current occupant, Mitch "Heartthrob Of The Elites" Daniels, being
already anointed for POTUSdom by everyone who matters term-limited after eight years in office. And in that light, especially, we must cackle at this:
“After years of falling behind, Indiana is on the verge …”
Wait'll a certain Surly Megalomaniac hears about that!
P.S. Our man in Indiana has further observations on Pence's announcement.
