We've got questions; you've got answers

OK folks we've had a lot of time with the aunts, uncles, cousins, and grandparents over the past week. They've all had questions for us about the 08 campaign and sometimes we had answers, othertimes we didn't. But one thing that did happen was us forming some questions of our own. So here are the Caucus Cooler's 08 queries.


What exactly did John Edwards father do in that mill anyway?

When Rudy married his cousin, what did the rest of the family think? How awkward was that wedding? And who names their daughter Regina anyway?

Could John McCain's mom really be only 94? How is she still alive? What were the secrets to her diet?

If BARACK's father grew up herding goats in Kenya how did he end up marrying a woman from Kansas? Was the goat herding a part-time thing or something? Is goat-herding to Kenya as detasseling is to rural Iowa, just something everybody does?

Is Governor Vilsack going to be united with his birth mother on the trail?


Do any of the Republican candidates for President besides John McCain have a position on the Iraq War? If so, what is it? Do they plan on talking about it during the campaign? Are any of them besides Hagel going to be for troop reductions?

Who's going to carry the mantle for the Steve King wing of the party on immigration? How are the Democrat contenders currently in Congress going to act on immigration in the coming year?

Is John Kerry's official position still "I was for the war before I was against it?" and how many references to this phrase are we going to hear before this campaign is up?

Is Mitt Romney's official position I was for abortions before I was against them? (at least 1 reference) or John McCain's I was against ethanol before I was for it? (2)

Does Newt really believe he's going to get away with reinventing himself as bi-partisan?

Who has had more work done to their face: Hillary, Biden, Kerry, or Beyonce?

Who in the hell is Rudy going to hire in Iowa? Is the three headed Nussle monster (Ryan, Dorr, Comella) getting the band back together? If not, who else is out there?

Who's going to run the McCain campaign in Iowa? The Gang of 50 thinks Failor, could that be?

Could Tom Beaumont possibly sustain his torrid pace of 4 articles per week about Tom Vilsack's bid for the Presidency?

Will someone else emerge or are the conservatives going to have to deal with the Big 3?

Does Mike Huckabee have a strategy for winning this election? If so, would he share it with someone?

Will the Caucus Cooler's meteorotic rise to prominence continue? (Ok well maybe that one's a little bit of a stretch!)

So let's hear what questions you'd like to have answered, or maybe answer some of ours. Have some fun with it.

Let's tone it down on the mormon/homophobic jokes please...

Is it possible to tone down the morman/homophic jokes?

But on a more serious note, good post. Great questions. I'd really like to know some of the answers to them.

Did you all get the update that Hillary finally admitted that she was not, in fact, named after Edmund Hillary?

I feel the same way about the goat herder story.

This post confirms for me that Troy Bishop runs this blog. It's his humor, a complete flip-flop on Gilmore after he jumped on board, incessant Romney and McCain attacks. Just admit it Troy.

We need a nominee who can win. Not a person to fill the "void" on the right as you call it.

You're a dumbass.

Wow, a lot of venom for humor post.

I'd like to know the answer to face lift question. Biden looks like the Joker in Batman, and Hillary looks like Sir Edmund Hillary.

Tom Arnold has as much chance of becoming President as does Tom Vilsack.

Great post..

My question is will the 08ers learn anything from the Nussle campaigns failed outreach to the grassroots?

That is the funniest thing I have read in a while. =)

Rudy married his second cousin. Barely related. Basically complete strangers genetically. It's the other wives and mistresses that will rile people up. Wasn't Eleanor FDR's first cousin?

My question is: Does John McCain know the National Resources Defense Council is nothing more than ICCI on steroids?

Does he know they tried to outlaw bacon as we know it 20 years ago?

Does he really believe this Global Warming elcrapo? And even if he does (which disqualifies him in my book) WHY would he join forces with NRDC to oppose it?

True conservatives do not associate with those dimwits.

8:55 (we all know who you are), you are a dumbass. I like T-Roy, the Cooler can verify that the idiot attacking him was not me.

Glad to see him back in the game!

Unless Yoda's blogging from Urbandale, Johnston, Everly, Austin Texas, Virginia Beach, Keosauqua, Meadow Texas, Des Moines or Ames he's clear on making that comment.

Seeing as Yoda is from Crapids I think T-Roy can mark him off of his hit list.

And by the way Yoda, since we took the time to clear your name, could you be nice to us for at least a week. Thanks!

Wicked strong post, CC...

I've met women from Kansas. They have two choices in life:

1) become a fluffer in San Bernardino
2) marry a goat-herder

I don't think it's fair to pick on Barack's mom like that.

Everytime yoda puts someone down or attacks them in a e-mail, post, or to someone else he always refers to them as a "DumbAss" --Check the archives here and on Krusty -- there are interesting corelations!!

Yoda, I hate Heine as much as you, but I have less respect for you.

You know who!

Anonymous Anonymous said...

Tell us who. Is it somebody so well regarded that they hide thier identity like a coward? Or unemployed hacks that can't get a janiotial job with a prez campaign? Or both?

If its not Sporer, Yoda, Leonard, Nicole, Northey, Rants, Sporer's Hot Spouse, etc. that is being trashed each dsay its somebody we know, and its got to stop.

Come on, we bystanders are tired of this anonymous trashing that goes on by anons claiming this and that against republicans. My guess is that is dems trying to stir up trouble on GOP blogs or at least I hope that is all it is.

I am sure many of the attackers are remaining anon for good reason. I am also sure they more obvious than we realize.

The thing is that if you don't put the anon option on the comment section less people will comment.
