The first rule of being in the hole 

Andy writing at Kennedy v. The Machine says Governor Pawlenty had two messages in his presentation to Minnesota Republicans.
  1. Republicans are on the ropes because we didn't stick together with him this summer
  2. fiscal conservatives are going to blow it for him if they don't shut up.
Governor, if you think you're in the hole, why are you still digging?

Hugh Hewitt is offering advice to Governor Schwarzenegger. Money quote:
As Nixon often remarked: You can't win with just the conservatives, but you cannot win without them.

Read him, Governor Pawlenty. Take his advice, and when you win next year empty the closet and give him all the awards you have. He's writing to Arnold, but he's speaking to you.
