Rachel Maddow On GOP Straw Polls

Rachel Maddow, host of MSNBC’s The Rachel Maddow Show, had this to say about recent GOP straw polls:

…we can all agree to treat these things as what we all know they are: cooked up, totally non-predictive publicity stunts designed purely to get media attention and to use that media attention as leverage to force the candidates to pander to the most manipulative and cynical activists in the whole political system. Oh, and to raise money for Republican parties and activist groups. We could call them embarrassing, pandering political stunts, or we could call them straw polls. Same difference.

Yep, sounds about right.
