the post-iowa raucous

in the words of a better-known canadian: why'd ya have to go and make things so complicated?

seriously, political people of iowa, there is something seriously wrong with the way that you vote and count and make decisions based on your counting. you've now had three bloody elections to sort out your shit [after the republican mess of 2012 and the democratic clusterfuck of 2016] and it kinda looks like things are getting worse. making the bizarre process of the caucus a little more transparent actually served to make it seem more open to corruption as we all tried to figure out the "delegate math" that saw pete buttigieg, who ran second in both rounds of voting, get the largest number of delegates.

is it that bloody difficult to have people mark a piece of paper with a pencil?

i'm still not sure that we know the final story in iowa as we roll right on into new hampshire but we did have a debate on friday to distract our attention.

i skipped covering the last debate…
