I’m Fairly Certain You Won’t Guess The Winner of the York, S.C. Democratic Straw Poll


Sure, talk about Hillary and Obama dominated the weekend talk shows. Sure, John Edwards is so horrified and offended by Ann Coulter’s stupid and vulgar remark that he’s barely able to stay strong enough to use it in fundraising efforts. But while all of us are paying attention to that, down in York, South Carolina they had a straw poll among 100 local Democrats. The big winner?

Christopher Dodd.

Under the radar, folks. He’s gonna surprise us all.

Or, you know, maybe it’s because he visited right before the straw poll.
