The most vaunted fundraiser in the world is tomorrow! 20,000 Republicans will converge on Ames, Iowa for their quadrennial straw poll. Mitt Romney, of Obama like ego, has spent millions of dollars buying supporters for the event and is widely expected to finish first. Romney and the others who finish well will be showered with millions in free television time by the chattering classes, making this the most out-of-proportion event in American politics. (Even more than Melissa Ethridge confronting Hillary Clinton. She felt "thrown under the bus" by Bill Clinton. Who cares? You think maybe Hillary sympathizes, you self-important heifer?) Here are my predictions on the finishing order in the straw poll:
Guiliani and McCain are not competing.
