They Really Do Think We're Stupid

From the Des Moines Register:
God's will is for Iowa to have the first-in-the-nation caucus, Democratic presidential candidate Bill Richardson told a crowd here Monday.

"Iowa, for good reason, for constitutional reasons, for reasons related to the Lord, should be the first caucus and primary," Richardson, New Mexico's governor, said at the Northwest Iowa Labor Council Picnic. "And I want you to know who was the first candidate to sign a pledge not to campaign anywhere if they got ahead of Iowa. It was Bill Richardson."

Several people in the crowd snickered after Richardson made the comment.

Desperate candidates do desperate things...

These fundamentalists always hide behind their scriptural literalism to avoid the deeper theological conundrums, which in this case is why would a benevolent god permit the primary system in the first place.

Why would a benevolent god permit Iowa?
