• Iowa Republicans Wield Their Electoral Power with Great Wisdom

    Iowa Republicans — who have recently pushed Rep. Michele Bachmann to the top of the presidential hopeful hill — are really nothing more than a bunch of cool-headed rationalists, you know

    A new statewide Iowa Caucus poll recently commissioned by TheIowaRepublican.com shows that likely Republican caucus goers are interested in one thing above all else — defeating President Obama in November of 2012.

    The survey of 500 likely Republican caucuses goers asked respondents who they would vote for between a candidate who they might not agree with on every issue but who has the best chance of beating Barack Obama, or someone who is the closest to their views on the issues, but who might not have a good chance of beating Barack Obama.

    By a two to one margin, the need to beat President Obama trumps ideological purity.

    One thing about Republican voters, they are a pragmatic bunch. They know that at a certain point, you've got to put aside your hopeful notions, hunker down and go in for the big win, all your wishful thinking be damned.

    That's why the GOP has redoubled its efforts to build a 20-foot-tall necro-robotic zomboid Ronald Reagan from remnants of the former president's DNA and charm. If they can get him up, qupping and not-rampaging by the Iowa caucuses, the party should be golden.
