Apprently, they don’t

Minnesota Republicans, the state party that gave us Michele Bachmann, covered themselves in Santorum.

Meanwhile, my precinct caucus for the Democratic Farm Labor party overwhelmingly elected to support Barack Obama for President. That’s, er, 25 for and 1 “uncommitted.” Needless to say, when you’ve got an incumbent, interest isn’t going to be very high. ◼

Don’t they know how to use Google?

Tonight is caucus night in my adoptive state of Minnesota, and I’m mildly embarrassed to see polling that puts Rick Santorum in the lead with state Republicans. I like to see the GOP make a collective ass of itself as much as the next cog in the Democratic machine, but I wouldn’t wish Santorum on anyone—not even the debt-ridden party that shut down our state government last summer. ◼

Iowa hangover

So last night a tiny fraction of the population of a not-very-populous but otherwise unobjectionable Midwestern state demonstrated they’ve never Googled Rick Santorum. Or maybe that they’d rather vote for a hateful, race-baiting asshole than a Mormon. One state down, forty-nine to go.

So here’s a nice animation of imagery from my favorite movie ever, to help take the edge off. In the grand scheme of cosmic history, the Iowa caucuses are much less stressful.
