Why has Watson's popularity plummeted lower than Sarah Palin's IQ? In 2008, he was a shooting star, gaining national attention and adoration, only to lose in all fifty states. Then, Watson disappeared from public view altogether and, ultimately, was eclipsed by his canine companion, Cricket.
Un-named but highly-placed sources now claim that, like many rising stars, he got ''too big for his britches.'' He refused to listen to the sober advice of his seasoned campaign consultants, such as Grace Linh Hoffman (pictured above), and acted like he knew it all.
Too bad for Watson.
Gracie Linh has moved on, and is proving that she has what it takes. And when the 2012 campaign comes around, she is bound to have a dog in the hunt.
