Beating on the Straw Lady

Who knew straws could be so important? (Well actually, most pundits pay close attention to the Iowa poll.)

Mitch won the straw poll. Pawlenty drops out because of the straw poll. The crazy Pentecostal Rick Perry is apparently now not only entering, but has a chance? And the rest of us sort of sit back and wonder if there's anybody other than Ron Paul......

I suppose it could be worse. It could be Bush v Palin (only in an alternate universe). Or Palin vs Bachmann..... or Palin vs anybody.....

Seriously though, Bachmann may have won, but I have a real hard time believing Republicans are in a place to elect a women. There I said it, but it may be true. Plus, I think Paul gives us our best shot at the White House in 2012.

Your thoughts?

Crazy Bachmann in Newsweek

Actually she kind of does. Yea, I think Newsweek did intentinoaly chose a picture that made her look crazy. And yes, she is galvanizing voters. And yes, this is catching the ire of conservatives across the nation.

Thank goodness she doesn't have a lazy eye. (But honestly, I would prefer to opt for a less cranky voice of the Tea Party faction).

More from LA Times.
