If I Made You Feel Second Best…

The news hasn't been good for Gary Johnson lately. First his PAC runs into some trouble in Utah, then Willie Nelson takes back his endorsement. From the official blog of Willie's Teapot Party:

This isn't the first time Willie's been caught two-timing someone.

Yesterday, both the Teapot Party and Gary Johnson 2012 sent out press releases announcing the endorsement. The media immediately jumped on it, with Politico, Fox and Raw Story leading the coverage. We were on a roll.

But not so fast. I sent the press release and coverage links to Nelson. His response took me by surprise: "My position is it too early for me to endorse anyone. And I think every one should vote their own conscience."

I wrote back reminding him that he had approved the endorsement.

"I know I said that," Nelson replied. "But I think I will wait and see where he stands on other things. My bad. Sorry. I still think he is a good guy but so Is Dennis [Kucinich] and if he decided to run I would personally vote for him. If it came down to either him or Gary I'm already committed to Dennis. They both have said they support legal pot."
