Who gives a damn what people in Iowa think?

The question has to be asked - aside from the musings of IOWAHAWK who gives a damn what people in Iowa think?

I don't.

It's the State that gave us Herbert Hoover* and Henry Wallace* which might well disqualify it's citizens from participating in national elections in a sane republic, but as the Presidential primary season confirms, this republic has lost it's sanity. If memory serves, the good people of Iowa gave us two beauties as winners of their parochial caucuses 4 years ago - On the Republican side they saw fit to promote former Gov. Mike Huckelberry (the Lawrence Welk of Arkansas) and for the Jackass Party they nominated a wet behind the (big) ears freshman U.S. Senator Barack Hussein Osama (the Alfred E. Neuman of politics). Thanks a lot you fine midwestern corn farmers from the 'heartland of America" for launching an entertaining program on Fox News Saturday and the Hope and Change Presidency that has this Nation stuck in neutral (at best) while he tries to figure out how to get "the car" out of "the ditch" that George W. Bush drove it into during his 8 years in the White House.

Am I being to harsh on the Iowans? Was the vote for Hackaboo and Hussein 4 years ago an anomaly. Before you judge me guilty consider this:

1980 the Iowans chose Jimmy Peanut over Ted "the swimmer" K, but they still gave Teddy over 30% of the vote and they chose G.H.W. Bush over the Gipper. 1988 the Iowans gave the nod to Dick Gephardt followed closely by Paul Simon - got that, PAUL SIMON!!! (not the pop singer - the goofy, bow tie wearing, Illinois Senator) and Bob Dole followed closely by smile'n Pat Robertson. Here's an idea - let's disqualify any candidate who wins the Iowa caucus and move on to New Hampshire (more on "the shire" in the near future).

* For you youngsters H Hoover was the original Big Government Republican (a fat Mitt Romney) and H Wallace was a central planning Stalinist who proved to be too left wing for FDR.

The Real Story with Gretchen Carlson

She was "sexy", but "too much hard work." I'm a regular Fox & Friends viewer (mostly in protest of the other insipid morning programs like Today and Good Morning America) so over the years I've gotten to know Gretchen Carlson pretty well. Stuck between Steve and Brian she always seemed a prudish scold with an irritating, self-righteous demeanor that I simply put up with because I figured some people in the Fox audience actually liked her persona. It was obvious that Steve and Brian did not, but they were stuck with her like so many talking heads and had to make the best of it - which they did. Besides, she was no worse than any of the other women on morning show TV - I mean, you're only going to find a certain kind of person to do this kind of work and that kind of person is the Gretchen Carlson kind. Then, one day, she was gone and replaced by Elisabeth Hasselbeck and the F&F ratings began to climb, and climb and climb - in two months view

No Step On Snek

On The 2020 Election: In an elemental way We the People of the United States lost because Trump, and the MAGA movement he champions, forced the Deep State/Administrative State/New World Order (whatever you want to call it) and its enablers in Corporate America - Finance/FakeNews/Big Tech - to declare their sovereignty and steal our election in the most obvious way possible. The brazenness and " in yo face " shamelessness of the crime is a big part of its effectiveness and loudly proclaims an intent to demoralize and defeat the America First ideology which actually won the highest number of votes in this nation's history. It wasn't even close and that was made clear when key cities in 5 or 6 swing states declared they would pause (stop) counting(?!) votes until all the rural districts had submitted results allowing the big city machines to manufacture the ballots required to put Jo(((k)))e Biden in the lead. NPC's and Normies don't get too critical of process a

@POTUS hasn’t Tweeted

What happened to the 11,000 tweets? Twitter has conducted a "purge" of "conservative" voices from its "platform" and that includes the account of one Donald J Trump who happens to be the President of the United States of America. To which I say GOOD! Let's take it from the top. A purge (the bad kind) does not include getting kicked off a social network. If that's such a bad thing then the problem is with the society and not the network. Purges are when police officers bust down your door at 3AM, grab you and drive out to some empty field where they shoot you in the head and then tossed your limp body in a mass grave. A conservative is someone like Mitt Romney or these tools at the Lincoln Project who are free to post whatever lies or inflammatory rhetoric they want on Twitter. Twitter has no hatred for “conservatives” or Republicans as far as that goes and I don't think a single member of Congress or the political establishment has been "p
