    Yup, great catch - Deleted as it's likely FakeNews.

    Iowa Democratic Caucus. Brought to you by the people that want to run your healthcare, your job, your children’s schools, the meals you eat, and every other thing in your life.

    Incompetence vs Corruption. What a choice

    But that's the beauty of it. The Dems' process is both incompetent and corrupt, as they are also doing everything in their power to stop Bernie Sanders (for two cycles)

    I would also argue its more incompetence than corruption with Trump, as well...

    Turned on ABC News this morning to see if the Dems had un-*ucked themselves yet. Here's the graphic that this national MSM organization ran:

    Now I won't say my answer as I don't want to bias the sample, but looking at the pictures they've chosen to represent the five front-runners, does one or more particularly stand out for any reason?

    Whole lotta both with Trump and the Republicans. Tax cuts will pay for themselves after that policy failing time and again? Check. Deficit now over $1 billion. Allowing their cult leader to bribe a foreign government into investigating a political rival? Just a bit of soulless corruption there. Part of the right wing political correctness problem. Thou shall not oppose Trump, for fear of what the Trump sheep will think of me.

    I would venture that Trumps incompetence is used as a cover for his natural inclination towards corruptness. It's just hard wired into his personality. His narcissisism fuels it.

    Meh - it's embarrassing incompetence, though I know Trump of all people wants to make it more than that. Some in the media are saying it will give Bloomberg a boost. That'd be fine with me. Anybody but Trump.

    We need to trust the process and not let the GOP and the Trump cult divide a Popular Front from coming together.

    Iowa is not riding with Biden. Watch Mayor Pete is this year’s 08 Obama . Another Neo liberal technocrat.

    If a Biden or Mayor Pete sort win and nothing big changes for the middle and working classes, in 2024 we’ll just get another horrible trump sort. At the same time, if they can win and control the courts and get a justice or two in the Supreme Court, winning at all costs might be worth it in 2020, 24 be dammed.

    Iowa Caucus results still not reported 24 hours after the polls close.

    Live shot of them tallying up Bernie ballots.
