  3. At this time it seems like Drupal is the preferred blogging platform out there right now. (from what I’ve read) Is that what you’re using on your blog?

  6. Boy does the guy at the intro go on and on, trying to make whatever the result is irrelevant. Yay Dr. Ron breaking every CPAC ballet taken in it’s history, not from Dr. Ron, but in participation increase from the audience in filling out the polls. Did this favor Dr. Ron? No, since all the stats of the people who participated remained the same across the board.

  8. Unless you’re Ron Paul.. Then 2nd place becomes the 13th floor in a hotel, as Jon Stewart says.

  10. So the news isn’t a back to back win for Dr. Paul but a back to back second place for Romney? Whaaaattt? That’s like the New England Patriots winning the Super Bowl two years in a row over the same opponent and declaring the real story is the “amazing and stupendous performance” of the loser of both games. I can see the cameras and reporters now running to congratulate the losing coach to congratulate him and his team on a great performance and how their 2nd place is a win for the NFL!!!

  12. It’s not enough to say “Vote Ron Paul
    PEOPLE NEED TO SWITCH PARTIES 12 WEEKS IN ADVANCE OF THE PRIMARIES IN MOST STATES.
    IF YOU DO NOT SWITCH IN TIME YOU CANNOT VOTE IN PRIMARY.
    IF YOU ARE NOT REGISTERED REPUBLICAN YOU CANNOT VOTE IN PRIMARY.
    IF RON PAUL DOES NOT WIN PRIMARY, NO GENERAL ELECTION ! REGISTER AS A REPUBLICAN. FIND OUT WHEN YOUR STATE HAS PRIMARIES. FIND OUT WHERE AND VOTE VOTE VOTE ! PLEASE !
