The straw that broke the Republican’s back

News from the silly world of politics..

The Iowa Straw Poll, a high-profile Republican Party tradition for nearly four decades, is now dead. The Iowa Republican Party on Friday voted unanimously to kill the state’s presidential straw poll in an early morning conference call..

And most people who are reporting about it, on both sides, seem enthusiastic about it.

Maybe the real reason this is is because with the amount of candidates running in the GOP field, they will not be enough straws to go around.
