Hugh Hewitt straw ballot excludes Tancredo

Insty directs our attention to Hugh Hewitt, who's conducting a straw poll for the 2008 presidential race.

The lucky choices are:

George Allen
Sam Brownback
Bill Frist
Rudy Giuliani
Mike Huckabee
John McCain
Mitt Romney

Isn't the omission of Rep. Tom Tancredo rather curious? Well, not if you know how the BushBot mind works.


Tancredo is not running for president; the others are.

And it really bugs the Bush people that Tancredo is as popular as he is. So, like you say, they try to ignore him.

More reflexive political cover for the GOP. Blogospheric complicity.

Hey, maybe if we all pretend Tancredo isn't there, the illegal immigration failure will go away.
