You know, I've got to hand it to Rep. Kevin Cramer. I haven't seen a performance like this since Brett Favre publicly contemplated retirement year after year while he played for the Green Bay Packers. Vikings fans all know how that turned out.
Cramer has it figured out. All he has to do is say he's thinking of running for U.S. Senate and the newspapers will put his image on the front page and the TV stations will play his story at 6 p.m.
Congressman: You can probably pull this off a few more times before the media figures out that you're playing them - and North Dakota voters - for fools.
Brilliant, Congressman, brilliant.
