That was the headline at The Poor Man a week before Iowa, 2004. That was the moment I decided not to get riled up by THIS primary, and why, during all these months of OMG HILLARY and “national polls say WHA?” and YA HALLO THAR OBAMA and other such things, none of it really bothered me that much. The numbers, I mean, certain things about everybody’s campaigns bothered the shit out of me. The numbers didn’t bother me, though, because I knewthis would happen:
In Iowa, it’s a three-way dead heat, at least when margins of error are factored in: Clinton (29%), Obama (26%), Edwards (25%).
So, you know, I refuse to worry about Hillary or Obama or Edwards as she or he or he relates to the Republican’s choice of freak, incompetent, racist or (and) sociopath until I absolutely have to. Because I think it’s been conclusively proven many times over that absolutely nobody has any idea what the fuck is going on, and I am no different in my uncertainty, other than thinking that this big strong killativemayunn should be our next president:
