    Paulites do a great job of coalescing together for straw polls but I think Rand won because of his prominence.  To be fair, I'm surprised the Paulites don't see Rand as more of a sell-out since he has been awfully chummy with the GOP establishment.

    Really funny how poor Paul Ryan and Jindal did.

      to help him with this straw poll.

      I wish I found this all as entertaining as the people who want more popcorn.

      Mostly I find it both frightening and depressing. It's not like these people don't have power and influence. As we have seen, Republican governors can make life hell for people. When the House obstructs and Republican governors are NOT obstructed, a whole lot of people get fucked over in this country.

      Republican insanity may be fun to laugh about, but if you're as old as I am (63) you remember a Republican party that was reasonable.

      Then, along came the "transformative" Mr. Reagan.
      Poof!

        It's not funny in any sense, but the lack of messaging around the right is pathetic.  But what's great is when politicians such as Ryan and Jindal try to out-crazy each other only to find they need to be crazier.
