Iowa caucus open thread. Update!

This is where I will have the old TV machine tuned tonight.

I have to say that after a day like today I am a little politic'd out.

And WAY over-served on Palin stupidity for one day.

I would usually push myself away from the smorgasbord and call it a day, but I know I have a job to do and I do so try to meet my obligations.

So let's watch as these spoiled rotten Iowans eat up the media attention while giving us the first indication as to how this upcoming election might go.

(And yes I realize that Iowa has a very hit and miss record for picking eventual nominees.)

 Here is Palin and Willow, looking frumpy next to the exotic Ivanka and Melania, watching a Trump rally in Cedar Rapids.

Update: You can watch live updates by clicking here.

Large crowds are being observed and pundits have predicted that will help Sanders and Trump.

Update 2: Does not get much tighter than this.
Update 3: Cruz is the projected winner on the GOP side.

Update 4: Word is that Martin O'Malley is planning to suspend his campaign, as is Mike Huckabee.

Two down. One from each side.

      (I hate to do this) In his defense The only one he'll ever get from me..in the Presbyterian church, as in mine, the money plate comes around first. Communion is secondary, given up at the altar, not in a plate passed around. It is easy to be confused when a plate is passed around, you see it, and automatically think to put money in it. I would have done the same thing.

    I guess as the rest of the US we give something to Iowa, some attention because really, they don't have tourism, they don't have anything going for them except for this caucus thing they do every four years, and hardly ever, have they ever, been on the money as far as who would be the winner of the the Presidential election and only a few times have they even been close to who would be the party nominee.

    I don't get the Iowa thing except perhaps the rest of the country feels sorry for them and lets them have something that they feel is important but really isn't.

    Bless your heart Iowa, I've flown over you from AK to points east abut 200 times, and even when I've driven up here, I've never bothered to stop in your "fine" state. Thanks for the corn?

    Sarah Palin the hound of the Baskerville's.
    She is a vicious dog. She is always half crazed and always starved for attention.
    She follows the death scent.

    So glad Cruz is on top and Rubio close behind Trump! Yes!!

    Not that I like Cruz, but this puts little Sarah in her place.

    I think Sarah Palin is responsible for these results. Her nasty remark towards Iowa's man, Rep. Steve King, really blew Donald Trump's campaign. Very possible that this was the straw that broke the camel's back, as the crowd didn't laugh at her insults.

    Bernie and Hillary very close. Either way, the world would be a safer place with either Bernie or Hillary.

    Redstate's 'buyer's remorse' on the Tundra Twat is front and center:

    From the comments:

    My God, who is this woman, and what has she done with the other Sarah Palin who delivered the brilliant conservative speech at the 2008 GOP convention?

    "We're gonna ask ourselves, 'what would a maverick do in this situation?' And then, ya know, we'll do that." - Tina Fey


    twominuteshate bwsmith • 4 hours ago

    She was working from former Bush speechwriter Matthew Scully's script in 2008, but I agree that her delivery which was pitch perfect that night has devolved into a schizophrenic sludge of baffling non-sequiturs and incomprehensible bon mots.

    fightnright • 5 hours ago

    As a Christian conservative woman, I guess if I rose to the political status with which Sarah Palin could have so greatly benefited our movement, but sold it out for a cheap celebrity legacy and a badly damaged family, I'd probably want to spend a lot of my time drunk or in a stupor too.

    Still it's strange that her rambling, incoherent promotional speeches don't spark much of a response. They always get plenty of laughs around here.

    twominuteshate • 5 hours ago

    Anyone still want to defend this twit? I know some are reading this and still thinking to themselves, "She should have run for President! Bristol Palin 2026!". It's just mind-boggling the slavish devotion a number of obstinate Republicans still have for this frazzled, know-nothing harpy.

    fortcollins • 4 hours ago

    That was just painful to watch.

    From her abrupt resignation as Governor to her curious Gubernatorial endorsement in Alaska in 2014 to her Presidential endorsement this election, she has become an increasingly shrill and screechy voice for the concept of her own rogueness, to the exclusion of conservative values.

    Maybe some on the left were correct about Palin in 2008, but for all the wrong reasons. What a pathetic end to a once-promising political career. Sad.

    danette • 3 hours ago

    Where is the real Sarah Palin and what have you done with her brain? OMG it's surreal how petty and small she is being. To much of Trump rubbing off on her. She doesn't sound sharp or articulate, but distracted and frankly, disturbed.

    irishgirl • an hour ago

    Absolutely cringe worthy. The folksy shtick is played out Sarah. Go home and try to retain some dignity if possible.

    Sarah left her son again, while Donald and his very pregnant daughter and husband attended. Sarah chose fame, hovering, like a groupee, with Trump. She can't even travel alone. Is it because she needs someone to dispense drugs and only her family and close friends can do that?

    I hope Track and family are in good spirits, and off the spirits.

    Tomorrow, the blame game from the Trump camp, will throw some barbs towards Sarah Palin. Bet on it.

    Donald Trump is a fraud: Report confirms the billionaire’s presidential bid is a long and calculated con job

    Donald Trump’s presidential campaign feels whimsical, like a practical joke or publicity tour gone awry. But it turns out the Donald is running a long con. A new report in Politico suggests Trump has been plotting this stunt for years, and he knew exactly what he had to do to succeed.

    According to the report, Trump was approached two years ago by GOP operatives who wanted him to run for governor of New York. To their surprise, he declined but added that they would be useful when he ran for president. “I’m going to walk away with it and win outright,” Trump told the group, “I’m going to get in and all the polls are going to go crazy. I’m going to suck all the oxygen out of the room. I know how to work the media in a way that that they will never take the lights off of me.”
