The Great White Hype.

The breakdown of the poll is thus:

Bachmann took 4,823 votes,  
Texas Rep. Ron Paul won 4,671 votes.

Former Minnesota governor Tim Pawlenty placed third with 2,293,
Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum (1,567)

There you have it.

Mr. Eliot was right.

Mistah Kurtz -- he dead.

            A penny for the Old Guy

We are the hollow men
We are the stuffed men
Leaning together
Headpiece filled with straw. Alas!
Our dried voices, when
We whisper together
Are quiet and meaningless
As wind in dry grass
Or rats' feet over broken glass
In our dry cellar

Shape without form, shade without colour,
Paralysed force, gesture without motion;

Those who have crossed
With direct eyes, to death's other Kingdom


  1. You left out Alfred E. Newman. How did he fair?

  2. Whoop de fuckin' do. Them who bothered to go and fill out a poll ballot had been eating fried Twinkies and fried everything else for that matter. Personally I think she is the exact and correct embodiment of today's republican party. At least she has bigger balls than Boehner and is her old man's respectful bottom.

    Stupid politicians and them to blind to see that every penny she has in her personal wealth is from being on the government dole. She is the ultimate welfare queen.

  3. *sigh*'s still a long, long, long way to November 2012.

  4. Who gives a shit what a bunch of hicks in Iowa like, or not? People starvng in Africa, radiated in Japan, rioting in Britain, caught in the crossfire in Mexico and all we hear about are these yahoos! Must be an off-week for F1.

  5. I concur with the wisdom offered by said commenters. Why do we give a damn about Iowa? I used to be the neighbor of that state and all we did was ridicule it. Nebraska and Kansas are far worse, but it is a boring ass state.

    Fried twinkies--good one.

  6. @WALKING Man: her eyes are really scary, like there is the entire inferno lurking within that body.

  7. Susan, ahem...Nebraska is far worse? Do you know what Nebraskans say about Iowans? Idiots Out Wandering About. Thank yew very much.
