It's that special weekend when

every four years American Gothic take their suits and dresses out of the cleaner bag and pretend to know what that second fork is for and once again sit around convincing one another they are the most relevant voice in American politics.

    So, Rick Perry has a chance?

    I want Ron Paul to win. I want Bachmann to come in third.

    Well, just because you can post here doesn't mean that you'll ever have a chance at the New Yorker or Vanity Fair. What I'm saying is that there is probably someone looking down at you.

    I think you got my point bassackwards

    When I was at the New Year's Eve caucus festitivies in '08 it was the Iweegians who stuck out their pinkies and were looking down on the rest of 'Merica as if they were the political power brokers of the land ... somehow downtown Des Moines had magically been transformed into the Hamptons

    OK, the Iowa caucus is first and foremost a media event. It makes for thousands of hours of talking head pundits to fill air time and somehow find an audience this time of year. It also exists, truth be known, to make money for Iowa TV stations off ads. Warm spit is worth more. I have ignored almost all of the coverage. Good for me.
