Tancredo Wins Michigan Straw Poll

From Human Events Online comes the results of a straw poll held in Michigan, Monday night.

Tom Tancredo won.

I, for one, am not surprised in the least. I have been saying for the past year that the border will be the hot button issue and now we see this playing out.

Just a straw poll, you say? You would be right.

But now, money will start to come in in order to compete with the GOP establishment candidates. And might I remind everyone that Bill Clinton won a straw poll in Florida, two years or so before the 92 election. Before that, he was a virtual unknown that gave a long boring speech at the 1988 Democratic Convention. So it's not so far fetched of a notion to think of Tancredo as the front-runner.

Earth to Washington, earth to Washington. Come in Washington. We have a message for you, Washington. Do you copy?

George Wallace, Jr.? What's his platform?

Border security is THE issue in national politics!
