Mitt Romney, who has been buying votes at the Southern Republican Leadership Conference, beat Ron Paul by a measly one. Sarah Palin was third and Newt Gingrich was fourth. Check out the triumphalist tone of this typical story. It shows how worried the regime and its media have been. And you know what? Their worries have only begun. The hilarious "Evangelicals for Mitt" spread the dough around for months. Ron Paul's small effort only started in the last couple of weeks. So by any honest measure, the uncrook actually won over the warfare-state's Richie Rich.
UPDATE Thanks to Walter Block for mobilizing his libertarian student network in New Orleans!
