Here is a New American article that details the first day of CPAC, and highlights Ron Paul’s popularity. (HT: Bill Greene)
Here Jeremy Lott at AmSpec already concedes that Ron Paul is going to win the straw poll. My comment is below:
I keep telling y’all interventionists that non-interventionism is on the rise. We see that abundantly on display at CPAC. But your reaction is usually whistling past the graveyard, mindless derision (see Occam’s Tool above), or amping up the hysterics.
When are you going to realize that you are losing your grip on the movement and are going to have to engage the non-interventionists on a serious intellectual level? And serious intellectual level does not include shrieking anti-Semitism and playing the WWII card as first resorts.
