Starting a political forest fire in Iowa

Reaction to my name being removed from the Polk County (Des Moines, Iowa) GOP chairman's presidential straw poll in which I got 52% of the vote. Pataki got 16%, Romney 12% and everyone else 5% or less. Comments posted on Chairman Ted Sporer's blog below.

John McCain and Rudy Guiliani got 2% and Bill Frist 1%. My vote notwithstanding they clearly have no grassroots support in Iowa. Also not a good showing for Pataki and Romney who've spread a lot of money around in Iowa.
Another example of how questioning political shibboleths raises hackles. My comments on globalism in the NY Times Deal Book blog did just that.
