“Perhaps the most alarming thing that came out of Iowa this week was not the incompetence of the party and the failed technology that leaves us still in the dark as to the final results of the caucus… what should most concern us is that turnout might have barely kept pace with 2016 levels, and fell well below the historic turnout of 2008. We’re in the middle of a national emergency, and people are staying home.”

But last night Iowa’s caucus bubble was burst.
They’re good at milking cows
And growing corn and raising sows,
But at creating mobile phone applications, they’re the worst!
