Ron DeSantis can’t be as smart as some apparently think he is. He strikes me as more a puppet, a needy child seeking someone’s approval.
There’s a difference between smart, and plodding calculation. He’s just another dull human with a certain political acumen, toeing the line, dependent on ignorance and the Fox News crowd to take him where he allegedly wants to go, perhaps harboring certain ambitions.
Or maybe he’s the one who various pundits are warning might come along next—the one who flies below the radar, who’s more patient and devious, and evil, than Trump.
Nah. Can’t be.
