Not Remotely Shocked

I'd always thought it was a foregone conclusion that Michele Bachmann would win the Iowa Straw Poll.  She'd been polling well consistently for weeks, and she seems to exist in that odd bubble that only a select group on the right seem to understand, and believe to be true about the state of the nation.  I am surprised that Tim Pawlenty is leaving the race so soon.  But I suppose that after all of the work he put into Iowa, and then to come in a distant third was enough for him to say enough is enough.  And I am as excited about Gov. Rick Perry entering the race for the presidency, as I am for the coming of summer.
