But...but...bu....he's "unelectable?!!?" I thought he was "kooky" and "couldn't win?" Oh wait, I'm sorry that was the MSM meme when he was in 3rd and below in Iowa. Since he's moved into 2nd, and now 1st, the new meme is that "Iowa doesn't matter." I've been told you learn something new everyday, and I must say that it is true. I've learned that things only matter if Ron Paul isn't winning them. Straw polls used to be a big deal, the Iowa Straw Poll was pumped to the high heavens. Then Ron Paul came within a few votes of winning it, and has won 20 or so straw polls since. Straw polls no longer matter. "Come to us when Ron Paul is winning the polls and then wins an actual state in an actual caucus/primary." Fair enough, Ron is surging in the polls, has the best ground game in the state of Iowa, is flush with cash, and appears to be on the verge of winning Iowa. Well guess what? Polls don't matter anymore, and now we're being told Ron Paul winning Iowa would "discredit the Iowa Caucuses." Cenk Uygur knows the word for this game:

The PPP Poll? Oh, of course 'Paul's Personal People' Poll.

No wonder. I'd do well in my own hired hands poll.

And people been questioning Gallup and Rasmussen's credibility.

Ron Paul EXCELS in the economy and reducing Government spending.

And it looks like the chickenhawks who were talking about KILL! KILL! KILL! didn't make a dent in the public opinion.

"What is more important to you when deciding
who to vote for: a candidate’s ability to beat
Barack Obama in the general election, or their
positions on the issues?
A candidate's ability to beat Obama................ 32%
Their issue positions ....................................... 56%
Not sure .................................................. ........ 12%

Do you think that Ron Paul has strong
principles, or not?
He does .................................................. ........ 73%
He does not .................................................. .. 10%
Not sure .................................................. ........ 17%

If you are 18 to 29 years old, press 1. If 30 to
45, press 2. If 46 to 65, press 3. If you are
older than 65, press 4.
18 to 29................................................ ........... 14%
30 to 45................................................ ........... 30%
46 to 65................................................ ........... 37%
Older than 65................................................ .. 19%

Would you describe yourself as very liberal,
somewhat liberal, moderate, somewhat
conservative, or very conservative?
Very liberal .................................................. .... 3%
Somewhat liberal ............................................ 6%
Moderate.......................................... ............... 19%
Somewhat conservative.................................. 36%
Very conservative ........................................... 36%"

BOO-YAH!

Ron Paul ~ 2012!!!!
