The Iowa Circus

The Iowa Circus

The much-anticipated start of the 2020 Primary Season gets underway today with the Iowa Caucus.  And if the weekend news is any indication, it’s going to be more like the Iowa Circus.  Or Iowa shit-show.  Take your pick.

The Iowa Circus kicked off Saturday evening when the much-anticipated CNN/Des Moines Register poll, which had been hyped like the Oscars all day on CNN, was suddenly scrapped at the last minute.

According to the Register, one respondent raised an issue with the survey saying that one candidate’s name was omitted from the list of candidates read.  Well, if the respondent noticed that one of the candidates wasn’t listed, couldn’t said respondent say, “Hey, you forgot Buttigieg!”

Deep-sixing this well-known final poll over one respondent seems sketchy to say the least – leading some to suspect the poll either showed Bernie running away with Iowa or Joe Biden tanking.  Or both.

Meanwhile, in the center ring of the Iowa Circus, Liz Warren’s Campaign of Cringe went full-on Social Justice.

Warren’s only black friend, Congresswoman Ayanna Pressley, made a completely pointless case for a Warren Presidency that is about as unifying and substantive as Warren’s “I’ll Have a Trans Kid Pick my Education Secretary” nonsense.

Yes, I’m forever waxing on about how I’m living my life in complexity, intersectionality and nuance.  Who doesn’t?

Don’t you just love pointless, meaningless SocialJusticeSpeak?

This is the best Team Warren can come up with as a closing argument for the Iowa Circus?  Is she running for President of the United States or President of the College Diversity Club?

Pete Buttigieg spent the weekend reiterating that Trump voters are, at best, turning a blind eye to racism.  He told Jake Tapper that he’s “very concerned about the racial divide that this President has fostered.” Calling half the country tacit racists will certainly help heal that racial divide, won’t it, Pete?

I guess Buttigieg didn’t see the recent Gallup poll that showed Americans have a better outlook regarding the state of race relations today than they did in January 2017 (36% compared to 22%).  Looks to me like “this President has fostered” a fourteen point improvement on race relations.

But then again, when you have nothing substantive to add, calling Trump and his supporters racists is always going to be your fallback position.

And then there’s Joe Biden.

While poor Joe was campaigning in a middle school gymnasium, his “big gun” campaigner John Kerry was apparently beginning to show concern over Biden’s ability to stop the Commie Juggernaut known as Bernie Sanders.

Jonathan Allen from NBC News allegedly overheard Kerry floating the idea of entering the 2020 race in order to stop “the possibility of Bernie Sanders taking down the Democrat Party.”

Kerry immediately responded to the rumor with a tweet containing a profanity even President Trump wouldn’t use on Twitter.

Kerry's Iowa Circus tweet

Yes, that parenthetical was necessary, wasn’t it?  Just in case any of you thought John was using the F-word as a verb.

Potty-mouth Kerry quickly deleted this version and tweeted the same thing without his colorful language.

But it was too late. The rumors were already flying around like bats.

See why I say the Iowa Caucus morphed into the Iowa Circus?

There just doesn’t seem to be any confidence on the part of the Democrat Party.  And I doubt that bodes well going forward.

As far as the Iowa Circus is concerned, it’s looking very likely that Bernie Sanders will win in a blow-out.

At the same time, I can’t help but wonder if nervousness over the prospect of a Communist winning their state doesn’t result in a “Stop-the-Commie” pushback during caucusing.

Of course with such weak candidates to choose from, I’m not sure how successful that would be.

I’ll admit, I don’t know enough about the machinations of the Iowa Caucus to say for certain that this kind of pushback can even happen.  But I still wonder if the “moderates” will launch some kind of last-minute counterattack.

And I’m not alone.

Given the state of the Democrat field and the DNC’s panic over a possible Bernie nomination, I’m thinking there will be a lot of twists and turns in store for us tonight.

So stock up on popcorn and cotton candy then sit back and enjoy the Democrats’ version of the Greatest Show on Earth.

    All those bored, sad faces in that video clip of Pressley blabbering her word salad…

    Iowa? Stick with growing corn. Your Democratic candidates wish to do away with the Electoral College. Wise up vote Republican. Your democrat vote means little to the Left.
