First, a great deal of broohaha for an event that produces less than 20,000 votes. And as the native born Iowan, Bachmann would be dismayed not to win.
But in the months ahead, both sides of the political aisle will marginalize Paul and Bachmann. Why? Because the elites are absolutely terrified that either one would actually do something.
And I suspect more than a few of them are deathly afraid that their actions would produce such fantastic results that it would forever change the comfy but impotent dynamics upon which their success depends.
Despite all the media diatribe, no one thinks Paul is 'kooky.' On the contrary, they fear that he is right.
