We have been so far behind the ball at the Cooler this week that we're embarassed. Everybody gets 3 free Dixie Cups and our sincerest apologies. Here's a recap of some of the things we missed.

  • We already know how to win the caucus at the Cooler. But Mark Halperin has a book about how to win the Presidency in '08. Check it out. Not likely to be as good as "What it Takes" (Hat tip Burton Rider for making us take this off the shelf again.)
  • Lots of Presidentials in town this weekend. Newt was with Nussle last night, Lamberti today, and does the Fair thing tomorrow. Pataki will attend 3 events for GOP candidats on Saturday Aug 12th. 9:00, he headlines an event for Larry Noble, who is running to fill Lamberti's Senate seat in Ankeny. He will headline an event for Tim Morgan at 2:30 and then head to Cerro Gordo County for a fundraiser for the Cerro Gordo Republicans. If anyone wants to be a Cooler Columnist for these events email
  • Add Mark Warner to the Lamont column. Leaving just Biden, Clinton, and Vilsack unaffiliated.
  • Romney whores himself to Hardball, Fox News and Fox and Friends on the thwarted terror plot. Get some Governor!
  • Around the Rumor Mill- John Cox apparently had a confrontation with RPI staffers at the GOP Booth at the fair. Well Done.

That should leave you with plenty to chat about over the weekend.

I think you meant to say that Cox is such a Dick that you at least have to take it times two or beyond (Cox is plural ya know).

Thanks for the correction 1st state.

On Cox, apparently he wasnted to shake hands by the booth and set out his literature, the rpi staff there said no dice we are worried about 06. Cox did his "only declared candidate" game and didn't get anywhere with it. He got very upset and left. He camr back later to apologize.

    The Cooler line is an exclusive creation of Caucus Cooler and will be updated as the political environment changes.
    It is an unscientific assessment of the Iowa Caucus (not the Presidential race as a whole) from an insiders view at the given time. The line IS NOW mathematically accurate but is NOT intended for gambling purposes. Information may only be reproduced with credit to the Caucus Cooler.
