Republican Pre-Primary Plan

I just talked to a guy who works for the GOP and he told me that they have a one-candidate-per-month plan for the rest of the year. According to him, they plan on having one candidate take the lead for each month until the primaries actually start. It will be:

Michelle Bachmann in September
Rick Perry in October
Heman Cain in November
Newt Gingrich in December

I don't have any idea how they plan to do it (Herman Cain?!?!), but this is how they plan on letting Mitt Romney (the candidate that they expect to actually win the primary) stay out of the spotlight and not have to take the beating that goes with front-runner status.

I'll post more if/when I get more details.
