Generally speaking, when the conventional wisdom is that you're just fundamentally lazy, it doesn't do your presidential campaign much good to actual confirm those rumors by your actions.

It looks like the end is nigh for Freddie of Hollywood's campaign. He has decided for an "all in" stance for the January 3rd Iowa caucus evidently. His New Hampshire campaign operation is folding and he has failed to even get 500 signatures to place him on the Delaware ballot. Considering his standing is falling drastically in Iowa, (and Huckabee's are skyrocketing, leading to some fairly nasty direct mails from FDT about Huckabee) things aren't looking so good for the "Law & Order" candidate.

Watch this less than flattering portrait from a Columbus/Cleveland news station (apparently, he's underwhelming Ohio too), featuring our good buddy Cliff Schecter. When was the last time you can remember a liberal politico like Cliff being asked to comment on a Republican candidate?
