Hey or Hay? Grasping at the Straw Poll

August 13, 2011 - Joselyn King
As the straw poll in Iowa took place Saturday, I was buying groceries at Walmart. And so it seemed were a lot of other people.

It's the middle of August in 2011. Few Americans -- not even those of political minds -- are yet truly looking ahead to the 2012 presidential primary.

It's quite possible the ultimate winner of the 2012 GOP primary hasn't even hinted at entering the race yet. But he or she better do so soon if they intend to get their finances and support together before January.

As for now . . .yawn.

I have to think that, or else I might think we are on the verge of the Apocalypse based on this tidbit: it's being reported that the most recent episode of Jersey Shore bested the ratings for the GOP presidential debate this week.

I do know if I were running for president I wouldn't want to be at the top of the pack right now, with a multitude of candidates aiming their cannons rights at you.

The only way to go is down.

What presidential candidate would want to peak in August 2011?
