So Republicans and conservatives gathered for their annual drunken debauchery, err…CPAC, and decided in a meaningless, but otherwise telling, straw poll on who their next Presidential nominee should be.
Rand Paul ran away with the straw poll. Ted Cruz was a distant second. The people who barely registered a blip after Paul and Cruz are even wackier if that is even possible.
So conservatives have a love affair with Rand Paul. Let us see. Is it this Rand Paul who thinks white-only lunch counters should be legal in the name of “liberty”?
That sound you hear? It is the sound of Democrats dancing in the streets for 2016.
Regardless of who Republicans ultimately nominate, they better hope Hillary Clinton is the nominee for the Democrats. Because if Hillary is not the nominee, we are looking at a President Andrew Cuomo or Martin O’Malley who both will be even more left wing than Hillary is.
