Iowa Straw Poll

Ok, I know I said that I would write something every Friday but I am still having some trouble getting motivated.

On the Iowa Straw Poll that was held today, Romney won. This was not really a surprise I guess, but second and third place were - Huckabee second and Brownback third. I like Romney but I don't know anything about these other two.

It is interesting that Ron Paul finished higher than any of the "front runners" (other than Romney of course). Now, I understand that McCain, Giuliani and Fred 'not a candidate' Thompson all skipped the event but I really expected that they would have a better showing. Perhaps the media is wrong about the real contenders for the Republican nomination? Nah, this is just an insignificant straw poll...right?
