Considering that it’s a parody blog, Political Pale Horse did a pretty decent job summarizing today’s speeches at Ames.
Romney then brought up his litter of children and their litters of children.
We can’t help but love Tancredo since he’s from our home state of Colorado. Please forgive us for being so obviously biased in this area.
John Cox (funny stuff here about the fifth Led Zeppelinian)
“John Cox was born. Years later he ran for office and lost. This repeated itself for sometime and now he’s here in front of you.”
Ron Paul was preempted out by a mob of his supporters, some dressed in old style patriotic uniforms. The rest were truthers, hippies and isolationists. So it goes.
Huckabee gave a great speech and seems to have a lot of support in Iowa. We predict he finishes high in the straw poll.
Duncan Hunter’s military background and border enforcement credentials filled the biographical video that introduced him. [No wonder he’s running for Secretary of Defense.]
He took a jab at Romney with stating that he “didn’t become pro-life on the road to Des Moines and the presidency.” [He sounded like he was giving a concession speech but was hoping to become head of Health and Human Services.]
Brownback’s opening and introduction relied heavily on family values and the right to life. Best speech of the day, by far. We were impressed.
Well done, PPH!
Update: Political Pale Horse puts its reputation on the line!
Rumors are surfacing out of Iowa that Colorado presidential candidate Tom Tancredo will most likely take second in the Ames Straw Poll.
Rumors are surfacing that I’ve most likely got a lovely bunch of coconuts. Developing….
Update 2: I’ve been meaning to check what Cyclone Conservatives has had to say all day, but we’re having a bit of a Sam Brownback shindig over here at the Psycheout compound. Be sure to read Don’s summary of Brownback’s speech. It’s very good. He also covers the other speeches, but really Sam’s was the best. As soon as it appears on YouTube, B4B will have it for you.
