Good news for RP in Iowa.
UPDATE Intrade agrees Ron is the leader in the Ames straw poll. (Thanks to Johnny Kramer)
UPDATE from Scott Weisman:
Great news. This just shows how pathetic Huckabee is: "The consummate outsider who has always kept his own counsel, Huckabee took a parting shot at the critics whose respect he’s never had in full — and whose acknowledgment he’s clearly craved."
In the Mishna tractate Avot, it says he who chases honor, honor will run from him. And he who runs from honor, [eventually] will run to him. Huck is a sore loser who knew he couldn't win. And he didn't want to run otherwise, since he'd be walking away from considerable money now. But who better, in American politics, exemplifies the shunning of honor than Ron Paul? Who has been consistent in views for decades, regardless of the consequences. Who is so clearly not running out of some quest for honor.
