Jonah Goldberg's political wisdom

Dana Mathewson

Here he discusses the Buckley rule, and how it may bite us in the end. Good advice.

In denigrating straw polls, he gives an excellent example -- one which especially appeals to me: "Ron Paul’s second-place finish proves that it’s in no meaningful way a real poll, as his supporters are akin to Battlestar Galactica loyalists at a Star Trek convention, incapable of winning many converts and themselves unwilling to switch teams."
