Comforting News About The Iowa Straw Poll

After this weekend you might conclude that a majority of SOMEONE is crazy enough to want Michele Bachmann to run the most powerful nation on Earth. Actually since she has said she'd "submit to her husband" on matters of importance, we'd be at the mercy of Marcus Bachmann. In any event, don't worry. Nobody really wants either Bachmann running things, despite her "winning" the Iowa Straw Poll.

They were passing these out before the vote.

Randy Travis, people! You wanna see Randy, you vote for Michele! And as Unelected Blog points out:
While Bachmann gave out over 6000 tickets(worth $180,000 at $30 each), she received ~4800 votes, so 20% of those who she bought tickets for voted for other candidates.
So is that really what America wants? Another Republican president who overspends on something that doesn't matter, declares victory and doesn't even keep track of where the money went? I think not my friend. Obviously the real winner of the Iowa Straw Poll is the next president of the United States, Ron Paul. Don't tell his kid!
