Need I say more?
Or – I have no earthly idea what to write for today.
Thank goodness Iowa is over, and we can forget about it for awhile. Iowa is a joke. It is a small state where people have come to think they must be waited on and catered too, in order to attend a truly degrading caucus, and have their flunkies present even more material for people to decide. The candidate who can round up the most bullies, tell the most lies, and have the most deranged supporters wins. Something should also be noted. Ted Cruz out-maneuvered everyone else, not with his charm, but his choice of director of his Iowa campaign. Now that Karl Rove’s career is as dead as Jacob Marley, I think we’re probably looking at a new campaign superstar. Granted, they pushed the envelope, but they won.
What Ted Cruz did was dirty, nearly dishonest, and probably did change the outcome in Iowa. It also highlights why Iowa is like the X-Files, the truth just isn’t out there, period. Maybe it is more Twilight Zone. The caucuses themselves are patently dishonest. The entire process is arrogant and narcissistic. A primary process is not. I suspect the vote would have been much different had there been a real primary. Thing is, with so few people participating in the process, the shift of just 1% or 2% of the votes, away from Cruz, to Carson would have dramatically changed the outcome.
As for the Democrats, I’m just glad Hillary emerged, unscathed.
It’s no way to elect a president, that’s for sure.
