If John Price had any credibility in Republican circles, I’m pretty sure it’s gone. Price was quoted as saying State Senator John Waterman’s effort to obtain approximately the 32,000 certified signatures needed to get him on the ballot as a third-party gubernatorial candidate to only reached half of that goal.
The actual number of signatures was 2,250, or less then ten percent of the total needed.
If Mitch Daniels had employed this type of mathematical skill as George Bush’s director for the Office of Management and Budget (OMB), he might have given a ridiculously low cost estimate for the war in Iraq, and that misinformation might have helped convince Congress to vote for the war. Thank God he's not like....what? He said how much?!?!?!?! And it's cost HOW MUCH!?!?!?!?!
