Today, the Republican Iowa Straw Poll was held. This is a completely meaningless poll of "voters" in Iowa. "Voters" must pay $35 for the privilege to cast their "vote" for which candidate for the Republican nomination they support. Mitt Romney "won" todays straw poll but he has a lot of money to pump in to this kind of crap, i.e., pay people to show up and "vote" for him.
Today, for $35, I had 3 fish tacos, cilantro mashed potatoes, black beans, a margarita, and a beer.
