Weekend Links

We've been waiting for our lazy correspondent to send us a recap of the Cedar Rapids McCain event but he/she/it decided to spend the weekend in Iowa City (Who can blame him/her/it). Hopefully it will be equally as snarky and endearing as the Romney recap from earlier this week. We anxiously await its arrival in our inbox. Here are some weekend clips to satiate you until then.

The AP on McCain's visit to Iowa.
Kay Henderson's always compelling blog on the same.
Romney nabs Doug Struyk
Romney takes on a heckler
Romney gives two different reasons on why he voted for Paul Tsongas in a 1992 Primary

And I quote the Caucus Cooler from Friday, "We wanted to let everyone know that we will have a lot of weekend content coming at you following a funfilled Saturday and Sunday." Good job cooler; way to stay on top of things. It's 9pm on a Sunday night and you finally get around to posting something. Wow, way to keep your promises. What office do you want to run for and how many divorces do you have?

You get what you pay for 847...Maybe if you weren't refreshing the Cooler and Krusty all day long their posting habits would be less important to you.

Struyk is a good pick-up. Thanks for the heads-up on that CC.

1. Tsungas was weaker than Clinton for the general election, and Romney was raiding the Dem primary since Bush was an easy win in 1992.

2. Tsungas's views were preferable to Romney over Clinton's views.

Romney gave reason #1 in 2007, reason #2 in 1994. Are you suggesting that it's impossible to hold the two positions simultaneously?

Living in California (open primary), I can really sympathize with what Romney was talking about. If you're going to accuse someone of lying, maybe you should make the case in more detail.

No mention of this CC . . . I posted it to your comments section on the last entry.

Looks like Chuck Grassley isn't too pleased with McCain on this one.

Sen. Grassley doesn't seem to have the same contempt for Romney (or at least for those working for him)

I think that Grassley shot at McCain a lot bigger Iowa Caucus news than trying to trump up another pseudo-flip-flop by Mitt (it's getting entertaining how desperate people are to try and make this label stick . . . it's the only ammo they have against Mitt and they're pushing hard, but it's pretty obvious how forced it is.)

ABC News, Drudge, the Boston Globe all ran the Tsongas thing Jeff. It was picked up by major national news. You are posting links to two Iowa blogs. Only someone knee deep in Romney koolaid would think that your blog-links are "bigger Iowa Caucus News" than the national stories the Cooler posted.(including 2 positive stories about your man.) Maybe you should be a little less nitpicky. There's nobody over at your blog telling you what to post.

C'mon! He voted for Tsongas who was from Mass. and won with 66% of the Vote. Are we just going to keep putting the blinders on Wake up this guy is a wolf in sheep's clothing!

Did you caught Romney today how he flipfloped on the gun rights issue. He said a few weeks ago how he was this long tim member on NRA and he just joined within the last few months. Romeny is playing politics and being the worst of worst in politics. Romney is a phony!

Do any of the other "credible" Presidential candidates post their private phone number on the Internet?

HEy we should all just make that curtesy call to Klein, He would think that he is winning this race. Amazing.

Hey, we always talk about who's the best candidate. How about who's the worst? My vote for the "Biggest Joke" candidate goes to Dr. Mark Klein. (With John Cox running at a close second.)

Mr. Klein, My name is Glen R. Stine and I am the first officially declared republican candidate for president of the united states.

Say, your name rhymes with Stine and I was thinking you and I should team up and win this whole thing together. Klein/Stine 2008 or Stine/Klein 2008. What do you say?

While you are thinking over my proposition what do you say we swing by Hy Vee on Saturday morning for some breakfast. I always go there because that is when they have all those free samples and well heck its free and I'm on a show string budget. Speaking of which, do you have any extra shoes string that I could borrow? Black, navy blue or brown. It really doesn't matter as they would not need to match either one of my shoes.

I'm off to Staples to go see if I can score some more discarded ink cartriges for my desk jet printer in the dumpster so that I can make more copies of my announcement piece that ran in the Perry Chief in 1995. You know them ink cartridges are never quite empty. Its a messy process to get that last little bit out and as a matter of fact, this one time I... oh I need to go. The bus is here.

    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.
