2012 Elections

Right Wing News has a survey of conservative bloggers up on the topic of presidential candidates. Somehow I didn't get included in the survey, which explains why Attilla the Hun didn't get any votes.

Interesting to note, of the top ten vote getters, we have 7 governors, 1 representative, 1 businessman, and 1 career diplomat.

I find this encouraging in that the field is heavily weighted in favor of people with actual executive experience. Of course what 63 bloggers want means little enough, even counting their readers as supporters to some degree. If I were a complete cynic, I'd tell you that Mitt Romney will be the party nominee, and the game is over based on the Republican tactic of nominating the guy who finished second behind the fellow they nominated the last time. Depressing, but over the last 50 years or so, a reliable predictor.
