Tabin in the Pack

John, please don’t tell me that YOU are part of the pack! Just kidding. But, seriously, the only reason Iowa matters is because pundits say it matters. And the Iowa STRAW POLL means next to nothing. It sure as heck hasn’t been very predictive of ultimate winners in the past (actually, please correct that statement if I am wrong: I write that from memory, but haven’t done fact checking — which is the right of the lazy blogger rather than the formal journalist, if the blogger decides to be lazy but at least has the integrity to acknowledge as such). But my point is that LOGICALLY, Texas’ straw poll of actual leading party activists SHOULD mean more than Iowa’s straw poll organized as a pay-to-play system — because of the states’ sizes and because the pay-to-play is an outrage. In truth, though, NEITHER straw poll should matter, and frankly, I think it is an outrage that ANY of this is going on 14 months before the friggin’ election. It’s just plain crazy, and a bastardization of the Founders’ vision.
