Ronmey's Money.

So, just how fiscally wise is it to blow 160,000 dollars on straw poll tickets so that some 100 or so attendees can vote 800 times between them and phony up the results? Isn't that an awful lot of money for something so trivial as a straw poll?

The local GOP organization made a bunch of money, but can the primary be bought in the same way? Are these events the way that the campaigns have traditionally won the state primaries? Is this entire primary thing just a sham?

The GOP needs a rude awakening. The end-run is to ignore the primary popular votes and stack the national convention with Ron Paul delegates. It can be done. Ron Paul doesn't have to win the primary votes outright. He only needs to have the delegates at the convention.

Actually, I think Ronmey (pronounced Ron-Me) is more appropriate given this fellow's narcissistic outlook.
