We wanted to let everyone know that we will have a lot of weekend content coming at you following a funfilled Saturday and Sunday. What to expect:

A full report from John McCain's Cedar Rapids event courtesy of the same correspondant who reported about Mitt's announcement on Tuesday night.

A recap of Brownback's trip to Western Iowa

Fall-out over McCain skipping votes in Washington to be in Iowa and

a Mitt Romney interview with Face the Nation on Sunday.

Just an FYI.

And that's why comments must stay open. Because we're idiots.

Thanks Jeff!

A bit off topic, but you guys see this?

Doug Struyk (R-Council Bluffs) will join the Mitt Romney's Iowa leadership team.

Nice to get a big pick up out of the most conservative corner of the state. Nice prelude to his speech there on Monday too!

CC I guess it's late, but you could change your post to say ABC's "This Week" rather than "Face the Nation" (or is this a huge secret plot to get people to TiVo the wrong show?

Just playin'

Perhaps the Cooler finds Romney's appearance to be too boring to warrent changing the typo.

Sort of like when the Cooler posted two consecutive hit pieces on Romney on the exact same CFR topic...then when Team Romney laid out all the facts, it was too "boring" for the Cooler to even give a link.

Caucus Cooler:

Please, I can barely keep up with you promised weekend barrage of delicious news nuggets from the campaign trail. I know you said we were going to hear from you alot this weekend, but preferably before Sunday night at 10:00 p.m.

Bye the way, McCain had about 450 people in the room at CR on Saturday. Good speech, with Phil Gramm in attendance and doing the introduction. How did he do in Des Moines and Davenport?

McCain was in Iowa? I thought for sure he would be in Washington defending the troops against the treasonous Democratic resolutions.

I forgot, McCain is simply a grandstander who wants to coddle the terrorists.

Perhaps not enough time to actually blog the content because the Cooler was too busy following around his boss John McCain as an event staffer? Paycheck comes first Mr. Miller ... WAR Capitalism.

McCain skips a vote on Iraq to go CAMPAIGNING???

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)

Jonathan Martin says there were 150 in Des Moines. Nice headline, "Gloomy McCain, In Iowa, Confronts War"

I read Jeff Fuller's 1:45 links and this was the thing that struck me the most: They actually call themselves "Mittheads" on the Iowans for Romney website? Why would you guys pick that moniker? It sounds too much like sh**heads.

Um Krusty didn't post this weekend either. I guess he works for McCain too.

McCain is a grandstanding prick. Here is a guy who does his best to hamstring and handicap our troops overseas and now wants to send MORE troops to get shot.

All John McCain would do is give the terrorists more opportunities for target practice.

And people wonder why the Republicans lost.
