I have a friend who used to do this kind of thing in the dog days of August: Start a political rumor that really didn’t have much of any basis in any known reality. If today proves to be a slow news day (unlikely), here’s a move in that direction from a reader:
Is there any remote chance that she is clearing the decks to run against Kirstin Gillibrand for US Senate? Her husband Dan Senor came close to declaring and then decided otherwise. “Gee, we have all this research and stuff, Honey, why don’t you do it?” I have no idea if she’s even a Republican (closet?), but the filing deadline is in July and name recognition should not be a problem.
Back in the day, that could wind up on Inside Politics before close of business.
