    Gently I jab at the out of control nature of the US campaign lenght and spending.

    Also I made it so it looks like politicians kiss the hands of corporations and hurt the young and indifensible by switching hands and babies.

    How Sanders caught fire in Iowa and turned the Clinton coronation into a real race

    February 2, 2016

    In Sanders, Clinton came up against a challenger who lacked her organizational firepower but campaigned as a repudiation of the front-runner’s establishment credentials. Sanders’s vow to blow up the big banks effectively painted Clinton as an ally of Wall Street.

    The hope among Republican party leaders has long been for a champion to emerge. And on Monday, that person was Rubio, who finished a hair behind Trump and only a few points behind Cruz.

    When Rubio took the stage in a hotel ballroom after the final results were announced, he gave what amounted to a victory speech. “This is the moment they said would never happen,” the first-term senator said. “For months, they told us we had no chance.”

    The fight for the nomination has unmistakably entered a new phase.

    “We have a three-way race,” said Craig Robinson, the former political director of the Iowa Republican Party.

    Sanders really needed an outright win in Iowa. It is one of the most favorable states in the US for him (tons of white liberals) and is probably representative of a ceiling for his support rather than a floor.

    He will soundly win New Hampshire and probably fizzle once he hits more minority-heavy states.

    There's a reason I haven't told my family in Iowa that I'm atheist.
