Who's ahead today ?

Republicans in Iowa are starting to remind me of my late grandmother, who never wanted any of her grandchildren to be disappointed or feel left out and therefore tried to indulge every wish despite any personal hardship that might result.

Since there's nothing else happening these days, we get regular news reports on the public opinion polls of Iowa voters, as if the preferences of those bible-thumping dipshits were somehow consequential. They're not, but the polls prove that in Iowa, every candidate gets an ice cream cone. At various points, Moochele, Perrito, Sugar Cain, Newter, and Pappy Ron Paul have all surged to the front of the line, usually with the feverish support of 25 percent of those polled. The only one who's been unable to break out for a few days is Huntsman, but he's reasonable, intelligent, and honest and therefore can't be considered a genuine Republican. Even Mittens has won fairly steady support. And now, so that he won't feel bad, The Other Rick is finally getting his moment in the spotlight.

Tomorrow is the first day of a new year, and I'm not optimistic that 2012 will be a significant improvement over 2011. The one good thing that's virtually certain is that in a few months, most of the worthless assholes will be sent crawling back into the dark corners like whipped dogs.
