Blog Guy, I come to you for all my news about the 2012 presidential race.

Please explain this sentence from a Reuters story about a debate: “But Bachmann, Cain, Gingrich, former Senator Rick Santorum, Representative Thaddeus McCotter and former New Mexico Governor Gary Johnson all participated from sites across the country.”

What’s wrong with it?

Who the hell is Gary Johnson? Is he a candidate?

Ah. Good point. I don’t think so. I just Googled “Gary Johnson” and “corn dog” and didn’t get any matches.

Oh, wait! Turns out he IS a candidate! His Website says as the former New Mexico Governor, “Johnson is best known for his veto record, which includes over 750 vetoes during his time in office…”

Wow! New Mexico must have one really, really, really, really sucky legislative body, I’ll say that! So what does this guy look like?
