There are numbers and there are stats

As my friend capper says, there are numbers, and there are stats:

Scott Walker was bragging about winning the GOP’s 8th District straw poll by a whopping 92%.

Very impressive, even I will admit.

What is not so impressive is what they don’t report.

According to the local paper from that part of the world, which just arrived today, Walker, along with Van Hollen and a couple of other local politicians, were only able to draw 39 people from the entire district.

There are a heckuva a lot of more than 39 people living in that district.

Suddenly the 92% Scott Walker garnered in the 8th District straw poll isn’t that impressive.

Then again, Scott Walker isn’t a very impressive gubernatorial candidate.
