Iowa straw polls. Paul came in second.
And in a very distant third came Pawlenty.
2nd by less than 200 votes.
The poor media is going to have a tough time ignoring that.
I expected Bachman and Paul to come in first and second. Bachman probably gained a lot of votes because Iowa is her home state. So the fact that Paul came so close to winning is telling. Not to discredit Bachman of course, but an interesting point to make I think.
Also interesting is that both Paul and Bachman are members of the house, not governors. The last time a sitting member of the house won the presidency was in 1880 with James Garfield. I think it is time we elect another congressman as president.
Pawlenty in third? That is a surprise to me, but it was a distant third. Newt is finished...he lost to write ins. That proves his campaign is over.
She hypnotized them with her crazy pinwheel eyes....
So I guess we can figure she loses the primaries like the other nutters who won the straw poll
I think you should trademark your nutter word, jillian.
Looks like it's going to be Romney, Paul, Bachman, and Perry down the stretch.
Separate names with a comma.
