Chris Wallace admitted his statement here on Fox's Your World With Neil Cavuto probably wasn't going to sit too well with Ron Paul supporters, but when asked what would happen if Paul actually manages to win the upcoming Iowa caucus, Wallace gave us what is sure to be the standard line from our Villagers in the media if Ron Paul were actually to pull out a win in Iowa.

WALLACE: Well, and the Ron Paul people aren’t going to like me saying this, but, to a certain degree, it will discredit the Iowa caucuses because, rightly or wrongly, I think most of the Republican establishment thinks he is not going to end up as the nominee. So, therefore, Iowa won’t count and it will go on.

While I agree with Wallace that it's not likely that Ron Paul is going to end up being the Republican nominee, I do find some humor in the fact our Villagers in the media are probably going to place a lot of undeserved weight on the Iowa caucus, that is not known for having a good track record with picking a presidential candidate, if one of the other frontrunners would win the early race.

If Paul ends up winning Iowa, as a whole lot of them in our corporate media have acknowledged is possible, I'm sure we have a lot more segments like this one, where they're saying Iowa doesn't mean anything to look forward to.
