The KoPoint Political Explainer returns as Creepy Sleepy to discuss ‘Silly Season,’ the summer before the political conventions. Our legendary duo Doc and Dan are joined in conversation with journalist and former CIA officer Jack Rice to revive the Institution of Creepy Sleepy, and hybridize it with the KoPoint Political Explainer to produce yet another incarnation of the long loved and long missed classic series. The trio discuss the nomination of Mitt Romney and the impact of the economy on the election.

Dave Mustaine, leader of the heavy metal band Megadeth, is ready to rock out for Rick Santorum.

“Earlier in the election, I was completely oblivious as to who Rick Santorum was, but when the dude went home to be with his daughter when she was sick, that was very commendable,” Mustaine recently told MusicRadar.com.  “…You know, I think Santorum has some presidential qualities, and I’m hoping that if it does come down to it, we’ll see a Republican in the White House… and that it’s Rick Santorum.”

Weighing in on the rest of the field, Mustaine called Newt Gingrich an “angry little man” and said Ron Paul will “make total sense for a while, and then he’ll say something so way out that it negates everything else.”

Slate: How Do You Rig a Straw Poll?

Link: Slate: How Do You Rig a Straw Poll?


Answer: buy all of the seats in the house. Great election character analysis from @Slate:

Rick Santorum at CPACStraw polls, by definition, are nonbinding, so they have fewer rules than do real elections. And unlike opinion polls conducted by national organizations such as Gallup and Pew Research, a straw poll isn’t supposed to be a random sample of the population. Instead, those polled at events such as CPAC and the Ames Straw Poll are simply the people who happen to show up. That means the candidate who turns out the largest number of backers will win. One easy way to get out the straw vote is to buy up a bunch of tickets, then hand them out for free to your supporters. Paying for their transportation to the event can’t hurt. And wining and dining them once they’re there is always a nice touch. Since the CPAC straw poll typically involves about 3,500 people, you might only need to pay for a few hundred voters to tilt the poll in your favor.
