:biggrin1: what fun! candidates shot out of a cannon ( naturally, the second amendment being the MOST important one of all in GOP land) , candidates selling lard-covered junk food ( naturally, since all the big food corporations have the candidates in their chicken buckets), candidates promising that Mike Huckaby will personally play his guitar for them (shades of the worst crapotainment that Vegas has to offer) and all kinds of crazy shit. Oh, the thrill of being in Ames this weekend! meanwhile, Obama is doing the nation's work in the White House. steady and reliable as ever. how boring ! how mundane ! how good for those of us who care about substance, not theatrical bullshit.
