Corn Caucus Open Thread

The field begins to narrow today.

Will this be the end of the Ben Carson book tour? Will the residents of Iowa be able to finally enjoy a meal n a diner without being harassed by Rick Santorum? Can Rubio or Cruz tear a victory away from Trump's small, stubby, trollish fingers?

Here is my bold predition: 1.Cruz 2.Rubio 3.Trump

Yeah. I think Trump's support in the polls doesn't translate into the caucus. Be sure to tune into tomorrow's morning post when I furiously back track on my prediction.

Oh and this is a fun read from Stephen Miller.

3 Add onto that underperforming Trump theory:

Polls are done with calls to landlines. Trump's support tends to be older people. Older people have more land lines than younger people. Ergo: polls could be oversampling Trump support.

Same could be said for Clinton's support in relation to Sanders.

5 Oh, now I know it is going to be a good day.

I dunno how it is going to come out, we will see tomorrow. I would like to see Cruz win I agree with ace it is better to have 2 strong anti establishment candidates. If Rubio does well, though, well, shit.

And Last I saw Bush was around #8 in Iowa. He won't win NH. He has to be fashioning an exit plan. Probably some legal way to fill his swimming pool with all that donor money and do a Scrooge McDuck in it.

8 I just find it hard to believe a base as energized as Trump's is underpolls. There is Howard Dean for precedent. But my understanding is he was fading in Iowa in the 2004 polls right before the caucus, whereas Trump isn't.

9 I was going to ask if pollsters hadn't switched over to random digit dialing yet.

Then I realized, hard to do likely voters or whatever other demographic skewing breakdown you're trying to get that way.

I'm going to be real curious to hear the outcome tonight.

12 3: "Polls are done with calls to landlines.....Older people have more land lines than younger people."

Is this really accurate? Anecdotally speaking, I don't know anyone or anyone's parents who still has a land line. Hell, even my ancient Dad has been using a cell for about 10 years.

It would seem to be foolish to rely on land lines to do polling. I find it hard to believe that polling companies would rely on land lines for their polling.

===========

You can still do that with random digit dialing. It just takes a lot more calls to get a decent sized sample. If you start with a list, you'll hopefully get a certain percentage of those people to pick up the phone, but you'll only need say 500 to pick up the phone to get a decent sample size.

With the random dialing, you have to increase that by a lot because you have to get people to not only pick up the phone but also be likely caucus goers. So, say half pick up the phone, but only a quarter of them are likely voters, then you'll have to call eight times as many numbers.

Still possible, just more time consuming.

It's accurate, but older people are also more likely to participate.

Also, without a shred of evidence to back it up, I'd bet Iowa skews older and people have more landlines (whatever the demographic) than the rest of the country.

Pretty sure it's true. Which is one of the reasons that polling has gotten so bad over the last few years. Their ability to call people has diminished greatly.

And the weather report:

Iowa caucusgoers should be fine, but Mother Nature just might hold presidential candidates and swarms of national media captive. A blizzard is expected, but not until after Iowas politicking is completed.

Through about 9 p.m. (Monday) it doesnt look bad or much snow in any location, said Roger Vachalek, a meteorologist for the National Weather Service. I doubt there will be much of any accumulation by that time. Maybe less than half an inch or so in some areas.

The book is signed up for Amazon's MatchBook program. That means you can purchase the book in paperback, and then buy the Kindle version for only 99 cents. The kindle version is also signed up for Kindle Select, which means you can do things like lend it to other kindle owners and such.

This. If you want the DOPe to learn a lesson, nothing less than Cruz and Trump (in either order) in the 1 & 2 spots will do.

And, I hate to say it, but Trump is better than Cruz. Not because he's more conservative, or presidential, or any such thing. No, because he's not a Republican. Well, not a Conservative, anyway. If someone who is so obviously a fair-weather Republican wins the nomination, it will signal the death of the Republican party. If someone who is so obviously a fair-weather Republican *nearly* wins the nomination, and then some establishment pick (Jeb, Rubio, Kasich) is picked at the convention, it will be a sign the Republican party has chosen to self-immolate.

47 The field begins to narrow today.

No, see, the trouble with mandated ethanol is that the fields widen.
Putting ethanol production on a war footing incentivizes planting fence-to-fence, and that wipes out the pheasant habitat. I reckon the deer must like it, though.

Ringnecks were a Chinese import in the first place, and probably weren't going to flourish in the long run. Wish the same were true of their damn carp.

Good Old Carp, of course, were a German import. So that's different.
Apparently in a Schubertian alpine stream, carp's a fighting game fish.
But they can live on corn, and will walk the fields to get it.

Anecdotally, Rubio has a poor ground game and hasn't worked very hard until the last two weeks. Cruz has lived in the state and has the best ground game. My gut is Cruz's failure to ethanol whore, plus the Establishment pile on, will hurt him (sadly).

If being evangelical means you're against gay marriage and against abortion (which I think it a really narrow definition) there are RCs or other Christians who fall into that category and they don't consider themselves Evangelical. There may be "Evangelicals for Trump" but there are obviously Evangelicals who are supporting Cruz or Huckabee or Rubio, and anyone who thought Trump was going to take a stand against either gay marriage or abortion is wrong, although he might support people not being fined for refusing to do cakes for gay weddings

My house has both (Bethlehem Steel) I-beams and poured-full concrete block in its structure, and my floors have re-bar. And there is aluminized mylar film under the roof, and foil-faced foam board in the sheathing. To Sprint, this is a Faraday cage. Somehow or another, it doesn't interfere with short wave or FM at all.

You have to roam aimlessly through the halls to maintain a signal. I don't know, if your connectivity is mainly for snarking with your friends and accumulating fictional candy, it's probably fine, especially if Mom and Dad get your cell bill. I don't even trust the sonsofbitches when I'm working in the garden. But then I'm old enough that I can spend one hour alone without texting a BFF.

108 "Putting ethanol production on a war footing incentivizes planting fence-to-fence"

There were a few years of bubble in corn prices, but I think that related more to oil prices going to $120. Even when oil was $85 corn had come back down to $3.50, though inputs are still sky high.

I bought the part of the old farm I used to hang out on as a kid, and what I could afford. 100 acres hills and woods, and 50 acres of crops in little patches around the edges. Caught a couple turkeys on the trail cam last week ... but it is bobcats and coons that hurt them most. Fence to fence does happen ... or they just take out all the fences. But that is part of the whole "productivity" thing, regardless of whether we have ethanol. Big machinery wants wide open spaces. I still have a lot of quail, seldom see a pheasant.

Think about the statistical improbability of the Dims having two men with worse qualifications than Hillary, who both came from literally out of nowhere to beat her in a state where she has been campaigning since the early 90s and neither Obama or Sanders had been in the state before their Presidential runs. Given Obama's White Kansas roots, he might have been across the state line a time or two, but, I doubt that Bernie could've found Iowas on a map before now.

135 It's the Jesus Caucus, not corn caucus.

Trump supports ethanol, Cruz would phase it out in ten years. Yet Cruz is much closer to Trump in Iowa than nationally.

But Cruz has been "the only man that could ever reach me, was the son of a preacher man". (that's a song reference) It is Cruz calling of the body of Christ to rise up, and choose him as God's man for Iowa.

So ethanol has not hurt Cruz, but Jesus Saves.

Actually... more or less this. I'm not technically part of the Evangelical movement (at least, I've never heard that the churches of Christ qualify as that), but I think Christians across a broad spectrum are starting to realize that they've been whoring themselves out to Republicans, and many of them have decided to stop.

Which is not to say they suddenly support Democrats, but that they're no longer supporting Republicans as being morally any better than the Democrats.

195 BRITAIN is home to more than 3 million Muslims for the first time ever with more than half born outside the UK, according to new figures.

Soaring immigration and sky high birth rates have seen the number in the country double in a little over a decade.

Some parts of London are now almost 50 per cent Islamic, according to analysis from the Office for National Statistics.

If current trends continue the areas could become majority Muslim within ten years.

One in four Muslims in England and Wales are under ten years old than in any other age group indicating a very high birth rate within the community.

Followers of Islam now make up one in every 20 people within the country.

There are orthopedic surgeons who will lengthen the femur with a titanium rod. Being short does not really hurt a woman unless she is also very heavy.

He sent a mail piece modeled after previous ones. Rubio sent a similar one. It's not illegal, but the IA SoS, who hates Cruz, blustered about it. Turns out Cruz's campaign manager/consultant is IA is a for IA Sect of State, so there's no reason to think the mail piece is a real problem.

He's setting up his liberal readers to accept a Trump presidency. He's in the bag for Trump, and has been since, by my guess, October.

In today's post he says the only options he likes are Trump and Sanders, because he believes in firing the government. But he makes fun of Sanders for not being able to do math, while taking no shot at Trump.

I can't tell if he's full of shit or not, but he's really good at this style of writing he's cooked up. You can tell how being a cartoonist helps him.

There is a certain very misguided section of Evangelicals who mistakenly believe that if we bring muslims to America, land of religious freedom, that they will freely choose Christianity. This belief completely ignores the fact that they despise Christianity and that they see no reason to convert and become outcasts from their friends and families.

336 Once the burning times begin we'll all fall back our subconscious programming and begin acting in ways we can't understand, but that in fact are the inevitable result of any population as carefully and consistently brainwashed as we the horde.

It will start with burning things down. First just some buildings, then most buildings, then, we'll begin to realize, all of them. We won't be able to stop ourselves.

Once we're living in a sea of charred rubble, a second strange behavior will begin. Pieces of the rubble will begin turning up further and further afield. The wood and rebar...the stones...scattered.

Finally you'll see the strangest behavior of all. We'll all be salting the ground those burned and scattered buildings occupied.

And that's when we'll realize there's only one person selling salt in all the world in the aftermath of the burning times... AllenG.

360 A friend/co-worker of mine, in his Sixties, who has been in and out of the hospital with ulcers/some sort of infection/whatever for the last month, was just attacked by another co-worker, a fat piece of shit in his fifties. Fatty McFuckstick will likely be fired tonight, but first I'm going to pay him a visit. Haven't been in a fistfight in 10 years or more, but I'm 90% sure I'm going to beat his ass on sight (I have to go to the farm in an hour, where he still is). Wish me luck.

He wined and dined her, flew her around in his helicopter while lying about his success and then stalked her when she wrote a less than flattering article. His attacks on Megyn Kelly, no matter how well deserved, are going to be part of the meme that he is a misogynist. Cannot believe he is fooling people like Ann Coulter, Howie Carr into believing that he is other than a narcissistic megalomaniac who has no idea how to do what he says he is going to do.
Rumor also that NBC has a negative piece they are sitting on.

421 You might be right. Rubio has a bit of momentum right now, but I'm not sure it's enough to overtake Cruz. Trump is the one who could really flame out if his followers don't show up. Of course, that's one of the big unknowns right now. We'll see. But Rubio has done a good job of managing expectations and he will do no worse than the third place finish that he set as his goal. Whereas Cruz and Trump will both be disappointed with anything other than an outright win.

He's all about making a positive and proactive message for what the Republican Party stands for. Something McConnell and Boehner never tried to accomplish.

I gather they were assigned Chaldean names (Shadrach et al) by king's decree when they entered KingNebuchadezzar's service andbefore the unpleasantness in the fiery furnace.

They should've known something was up since Shadrach, Mesach, and Abendego translate to 'Rare, Medium and Well Done' in Chaldean.

===========

Holman Hamilton's biography.

From what I understand based on this biography and the Polk biography I read, Polk had a fear and dislike of Scott, giving command of the army to Taylor.

After Taylor won the battle of Monterey, he gave the opposing general extremely generous terms of surrender (they all walk out, with their guns, and no fighting for 8 weeks) which pissed off Polk who in turn gave command back to Scott.

The funny thing about it all is that Taylor wasn't that good of a general. His victory at Palo Alto was mostly due to his artillery and his victory at Monterey was considered at best messy by his fellow generals (he unnecessarily lost a lot of men going to the center of the town in some brash charges).

I just got a cold call on the landline from the National Republican Senatorial Committee, about what, I don't know or care. I hung up.

Thinking Trump would do the least damage is the real crux of the issue.

Rubio gets distracted by one issue.

Trump is good on one issue.

And we can't even be sure that issue was anymore than playing to the crowd.

Trump is a total gamble.

For decades it has annoyed me when celebrities voiced opinions on politics... shut up and entertain me!

Now we are about to give one of the loudest the Whitehouse. I know for sure he does not care about the small things that matter for most of us in our everyday life. Trump's perspective is HUGE, that means the things I care about are only bargaining chips to him.

Also, who does Iowa think it is being first? It's only Iowa! It's not Missouri, long-standing target of Grandpa Simpson's ire. Nor is it Minnesota, land of 10,000 lakes and 1 Prince!

Iowa's motto should be: "We're not even cool enough to be Kentucky."

Especially since it has long been universally acknowledged to be damaging to equipment, not energy saving, makes food more expensive and other feed stocks (like hay) more expensive. It's a total boondoggle, and ethanol biofuel would barely exist without mandates and subsidies. If anything, ethanol opposition is a good screen for a principled conservative. The unprincipled are likely to support any personally lucrative or power-gathering method, and bodes ill for border controls or immigration limits.
