Village idiot wins CPAC straw poll

"Tony: It's no use, the man is a complete idiot.

Village Idiot: If only. Now my father, he was a complete idiot. I'm still a half-wit."

– TV Mini-Series "The 10th Kingdom" (2000)

This is the only memorable line I ever remember from this TV show, but I am reminded of it every time I hear that village idiot Aqua Buddha, Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) open his mouth and speak.

No surprise here: the conclave of conservative crackpots at CPAC conducted a straw poll, and the village idiot won. Winning the straw poll makes him the biggest loser. Rand Paul wins CPAC straw poll:

Political Action Conference straw poll, picking up where his father left
off at the conservative confab.

The first-term senator’s win was widely expected, especially given his
father’s past successes in the CPAC straw poll. Rep. Ron Paul (R-Tex.)
regularly attracted huge crowds of devoted supporters at CPAC and won
the straw poll in 2010 and 2011.
