Iowa Caucuses Are the First Big Event of Primary Season, Unless Ron Paul Wins in Which Case They're Just Some Dumb Straw Poll
There's some new polling out this week that shows Newt Gingrich's numbers slipping in Iowa just a few short weeks before the big huge important Iowa caucuses. These caucuses are so important, not just because they officially kick off the Republican primaries in earnest, because nabbing a big win in Iowa is a crucial step in any candidate's campaign to win his or her party's nomination.
Unless, of course, Ron Paul happens to win, in which case they don't count at all…
[Fox Business News host Neil] Cavuto asked [Fox News host Chris] Wallace what he thought the takeaway would be from a Ron Paul victory.
"Well, and the Ron Paul people aren't going to like me saying this, but, to a certain degree, it will discredit the Iowa caucuses because, rightly or wrongly, I think most of the Republican establishment thinks he is not going to end up as the nominee. So, therefore, Iowa won’t count and it will go on."
The logic here is simple, in the way that a circle is a simple geometrical figure: Ron Paul will not be the Republican nominee, and any poll, primary or caucus that says otherwise is wrong and stupid and untrustworthy because Ron Paul will not be the Republican nominee. We know that he will not be the Republican nominee because just look at all the wrong, stupid and untrustworthy polls, primaries and caucuses that say he will.
Logic 101, right there.
