Ben and Bawb's Blog: Paul in the Polls

Excerpted from this post at Ben and Bawb's Blog

Recently I received an email from some GOP group or another, the
National Republican Senatorial Committee. I guess I didn't contact
each and every Republikrat group and tell them to get stuffed when I
got sick and tired of their big government, big spending, reduced
freedom tickets. I was glad that this one slipped through the cracks,
however. It was a straw poll just for, supposedly, the GOP faithful
regarding their choice for a Republican Presidential candidate.
Really, I figured it was a lost cause among such a group, but out of
my usual cantankerousness I tilted at the windmill and cast my ballot
for Ron Paul. I was very pleasantly surprised when the results of the
poll popped up. Fred Thompson, who still hasn't really "officially"
declared, was running in first place, but good old Ron "Dr. No" Paul
was in second place with a very nice showing. The "Big Three", the
Rudy McRomney Show, the "Ted Kennedy Wing of the Republican party"
that the GOP had hand-picked to serve to us were all half or less of
Ron Paul's numbers!
