Texas Kingmakers in the New York Humpty-Bumpty

Exile over at TAP links to an article wherein Texas Senator John Cornyn states that he’s supporting or at least endorsing the idea of NY Representative King running for Hillary’s Senate seat in 2010. This begins the race among Republicans to try to, as I said in the comments of Exile’s post, “de-pants a Kennedy.”

Count on 2010 being a very, very hot race.

Of course, as Exile sez: “If the NRSC backs Peter King in a Republican primary, I’ll seriously consider sending them a check.” I gotta agree, King would make a Republican nominee somewhere between the haplessness of a Mitt Romney and the loving grace of The Grinch Who Stole Christmas. But don’t count him out if he’s got NRSC money behind him.
