(Reuters) - Libertarian Republican Congressman Ron Paul won a presidential straw poll of conservatives on Saturday in a result that showed Republicans have far to go to pick a challenger to President Barack Obama in 2012...

Mark Twain note: It ain't pretty down here at Reuters. Tuff critics. Thank them for posting Dr Ron Paul #1 Front Page!

Paul, who argues the Federal Reserve has too much power and the United States should retreat from the global stage, drew on his cult-like following among conservatives to win the poll for the second year in a row.

Cheers and boos broke out simultaneously in the hotel ballroom where the results were announced. It was proof that Paul, who ran for the 2008 Republican nomination, generates strong emotions.

Not a surprise

Since he's the only conservative on the list, it's not really all that surprising that Ron Paul once again won the Conservative Political Action Committee Straw Poll with 30% of the vote. Sadly, 70% of the people there voted for anti-American communists and fascists, the second runner-up being Mitt Commie with 23%. I guess this means that 70% of the "conservatives" who voted were really liberals, communists, fascists, or people who are too stupid, ignorant, or brainwashed ("Ain't that America") to know the difference.

Good happens all the time. Quite common.

When a Ron Paul victory it makes it to the top Front Page news story? Of Reuters? An astonishment.

May there be many more.

Nice news reporting. Nice photo. Nothing mean about it. Dr Paul is good news, & that is just the way they reported it. They added a bit of embroidery. But that is the business they're in... it is all in the telling.
