Straw Poll Thread
Update: Results Delayed By Polling Machine Glitches

Update: When the results come in, this guy will be one of the first to have them.

In news that surprises no one, yesterday Ron Paul's supporters petitioned a judge to have all polling done by paper ballot, a change that would have cost $184,000. They lost.

It's not that I object to the paper ballot thing. It's that everyone's just sick to death of Ron Paul's piranhaweasel supporters.

There was a low number of participants in this year's straw poll (only 14,000). From this, we can deduce that more people voted in other years (more than 14,000). We can further extrapolate that this low turnout probably benefits whichever guy won, although if he won by only a little, perhaps the low turnout helped someone else. We are comfortable making whatever guesses we want about a higher turnout, as it didn't happen, so who the hell can say boo about it?

Mining the incoming data still further for hints and omens, can also conclude that given the low number of participants, none of this actually matters, but it matters less than it usually doesn't matter.


I think the polling closes at 7:00. Not sure how long it will take to determine the winner is Mitt Romney. Or how well the Only Man Who Ignites The Imaginations Of Modern-Dress Cosplay Idiots will do.

There is only one thing we know for certain: None of this matters at all.

Freedom's Just Another Word For No Monkeys Left To Lose:

“The reason the granny warriors got involved in the freedom movement was because of a law that would have banned her pet monkey,” Ron Paul volunteer Kyle Varner, 22, told me last night outside the “Ronstock” Ron Paul rally and concert, explaining the capuchin in a nearby van. “She came to realize that freedom is more than just a pet monkey.

Indeed. Indeed.

The Only Man Who Can Save Your Monkey.

Via the very annoying Plank, who in turn got it from this liberal nitwit who I'm sure would annoy me if I had any idea who the hell she was.

Maybe I'm Just An Authoritarian... but I far prefer Rudy Giuliani's non-placating position on people who spend entirely far too much time thinking about their exotic pets.

Via the leftist amateur webzine Slate, which also annoys me.

Dude, Giuliani totally pwn3d him and got the lulz for great justice.
