Iowa Unleashed

Tonight's caucus results rekindled my excitement about the 2008 "Presidential" race.

Two complete surprises: 1) a state which is 97% white gave the first nomination of a black man for President instead of giving it to a white woman, 2) Dr Ron Paul received twice as man votes as Rudy Giuliani.

Yeah, yeah. Huckabee this. Huckabee that. Whaaaadevah! I'll leave it to the puppet masters in the mainstream media to report on the obvious tripe. Sure Romney outspent Huckabee. But Iowa is a very fundamental Christian state and Huckabee is a fundamental Christian. I would have been MORE surprised if Huck did NOT do well there.

And while I'm happy to see that the issue of race was put on the backburner, the bigger point is that it was done in order to show that the voters REAL CHANGE! Every other word out of Hilary's mouth is "change," but it's a sham. A fabrication. She is a firm member of the establishment and would do little (if anything) other than perpetuate the continued deterioration of our country. Need proof? She says she wants to "change" health care, while receiving more than three-quarters of a million dollars from health care lobbyists. How does she expect me to believe she's going to do anything to "reform" the industry that is pouring money into her campaign. With the results of Iowa's caucus today, I think it is safe to say I'm not the only one who doesn't trust her.

At the other end of the spectrum, I was floored to see that few people were willing to cast a vote in favor of the fearmongering stupidity of Mr 9/11 Giuliani. Seriously, the man should change his first name to "9/11." He got half the votes of the most under-reported candidate in the race, Ron Paul. I know Rudy didn't aggressively campaign in Iowa, but I'm hopeful that is a good sign of things to come.

Anyway, my main man Ron Paul gave a great showing and Hilary didn't. Everything else fell on deaf ears at Chateau McD.

Thank you, Iowa. THANK YOU!
