A Tiny Straw In The Wind

More

Yes, there were only 152 ballots counted in South Carolina's York County Republican straw poll. But Huckabee's easy win must surely be good news for him. Another interesting note: Bachmann easily beat Palin, and was neck-and-neck with Gingrich. I wonder if Bachmann really is a force to be reckoned with. Most non-wingnuts regard her as an absurd candidate. But as Iowa's GOP remains dominated by Christianists, it could vault her into the credible zone. If Huckabee doesn't run, Iowa could make Bachmann a leader in the ranks of the ignorant and the extreme.
