Iowa Caucuses Tonight

Recommended Posts

The Iowa Caucuses are being held this evening.  Of course the national media doesn't care because we don't have about a dozen idiots wanting to out Nazi each other like we did on the GOP side back in 2016, or the good people on the Democrats side who were running then.

They're still on, even though the weather is supposed to be bad this evening.

The Iowa Caucuses will continue as planned this evening.  We recognize the hardship that today's weather could cause for some caucus-goers to get to their caucus site this evening. However, after reviewing Iowa Code and our respective constitutions, there is no provision for us to postpone the caucuses due to weather.   

They're good to go to if for no other reason than to hang out with other Iowans who do not think that fuck face is the Lord Jesus Christ Park 2 and that Steve King and Rod Blum are not the greatest things since sliced bread.

But still I'm not risking my life to go to one if the weather is bad.  It'd be different if I lived in town and was within walking distance but since I don't it's not worth the risk.  In a Presidential year I might be more willing to attend even if the weather's bad but this isn't one.

We have a primary later this year but I wish we'd have that here for the Presidential as well because having the caucus the weather doesn't always cooperate and people who have to work can't go.

I think we'd have to ask our resident Rufus reverend here on FJ, @singsingsing for the answer to that one, @onekidanddone, but if it's up for debate, I'll vote that our blessed Rufus is a female.

Hmmm... I would say that, while Rufus presents in the physical realm as male deer, in the spiritual realm (s)he is neither male nor female, no is he asexual or agender, but rather encompasses all possibilities because (s)he exists on a higher plane of being. So while in our restricted physical realm he has taken on the form of a male deer, it would not be inaccurate to refer to him, nor would he object to being referred to, as a female.

And may Rufus bless the great state of Iowa and its people with wisdom and discernment tonight.

I’m voting female, too!

How did the caucuses go, @47of74?

 

I didn't make it last night.  The roads were pretty bad yesterday evening.

      Did whatever I had change my personality at all?  Maybe a good thing if it makes my asshole tolerance even lower than before.

      Now thats the cats out of the bag, it feels nice to finally talk about it.
      Mr. Dilly and I are excited, definitely alot of nerves during the first trimester. Had the worst morning sickness, finally getting appetite back and I've been craving spinach dip and refried beans.

      My mother's family's farm (in northern California) was the stable touchstone of my childhood, the place we went for many holidays & most summers, if only for a week or two at a time. My mother was a travel enthusiast, my father was in the military, my younger sister & I grew up in the back of a car. Been in every state in the union except maybe North Dakota, spent three months in Europe, three months in Mexico -- all before I was a teen. I realized, as an adult, I don't actually like traveling. It makes me anxious. My mother kept traveling up until shortly before she died.

      This place is much nicer when there aren’t drunk douche nozzles trying to start WWIII with my sister. 

      Last time I was here I brought my sister. There was a drunk douche cannon holding court here. He and my sister took mutual exeception to each other. Well he first then my sister responded.
      We got out of there before he got even dumber since there’s another brewery across the street.  Drunk fucker didn’t follow us and I think some flashing lights a few minutes later were for him.

      On the one hand, my mother did her best to raise my sibling & I secular & liberal/leftish, but on the other hand she regularly shipped me off to stay with her fundie farmwife mother for months at a time. I prolly spent at least a coupla years of my childhood out on that farm where my grandmother did her darnedest to convert me to all the regressive things (hilariously, all it did was push me further into the peacenik thing). I've got a lot more to say about my maternal grama, fwiw.
