The bigots and white supremacists in the GOP must be eating their hearts out. Very Happy

With this result, is Rick Perry's campaign pretty much over?
Quote :
ORLANDO, Fla. -- Herman Cain won the Presidency 5 Florida Straw poll with 996 votes, blowing past Rick Perry and Ron Paul, both of whom had organized to win here.
"It shows you something," said Gov. Rick Scott. "The road to the White House is right through Florida. It pays to be here."

Of course, Perry had shown up -- he was here from Thursday night to Saturday morning, working over delegates personally. By failing so convincingly, Perry's ensured that the weekend's "trouble for frontrunner narrative" will be plated in gold and frozen in amber.

The final tally:

Herman Cain: 37.11%
Rick Perry: 15.43%
Mitt Romney: 14.00%
Rick Santorum: 10.88%
Ron Paul: 10.39%
Newt Gingrich: 8.43%
Jon Huntsman: 2.26%
Michele Bachmann: 1.51%
I'd say that Republicans couldn't be crazy enough to nominate Herman Cain ... but then again, they also nominated Christine O'Donnell, Sharron Angle, Joe Miller, Ken Buck, and, yes, Sarah Palin.

Got a good laugh yesterday watching the panel on Fixed News Sunday. They led off with mentioning Herman Cain had won the straw poll. Immediately Brit Hume poo pooed it and then the meat puppets proceeded to discuss Perry & Romney.

He went on to say that Perry threw up on himself at the last debate. Oh well, I guess the right's love affair with Perry is over. That didn't take long.
At least he had a good haircut. Wink

Yeah,and Perry's going to have his work cut out for him at the next sideshow. Texas Oil Refineries May Be Refunded $135 Million Out Of Public School, Community Funds
Quote :
(AP) PASADENA, Texas -- Three commissioners appointed by Gov. Rick Perry may grant some of the nation's largest refineries a tax refund of more than $135 million - money Texas' cash-strapped schools and other local governments have been counting on to help pay teachers and provide other public services.

The property tax refund would mean more pain for some communities after a year in which state lawmakers grappled with a $27 billion shortfall and slashed spending on public schools by more than $4 billion. Nearly half the refund would be taken from public schools, and those in cities where the refineries are based would be hurt most.
