Someone named Kevin McCullough is outraged that the winners of the straw poll taken at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) in Washington, DC last weekend were Ron Paul, Mitt Romney, and Gary Johnson. This result, he believes, was due to libertarians' "stuffing the ballot box." After all, many social conservatives decided not to attend this year in protest of the decision to allow the gay and lesbian group GOProud to participate. McCullough's candidate of choice, Mike Huckabee, apparently did not do as well as he had hoped, despite the fact that he allegedly "has beaten the president head-to-head in nearly every poll taken." The fact that Huckabee didn't bother attending may have had something to do with that.
Aside from being puzzled as to why a bunch of libertarians would have voted for Mitt Romney, and wanting to see those poll results that show Huckabee consistently beating Obama, my general response to Mr. McCullough is this: if you and your friends are going to boycott CPAC for fear of catching a bad case of teh gay, don't complain when those who do show up cast their votes for candidates who are not social conservatives. That's not "stuffing the ballot box"; it's simple math.
