The auld lang line

Posted By on Sat, Dec 31, 2011 at 4:23 PM

It's open for the last night of 2011. A note:

* F*** IOWA: The Iowa caucus madness continues. Shut up already about this meaningless exercise. A nominally sane person just Twittered that a third-place finish by Rick Santorum makes him winner of Iowa. Really? 16,000 votes or so from a gang of religious nuts and a third-place finish with 16 percent of a meaningless vote makes him a winner? Of what exactly? Stop the Iowa madness. Columbia Journalism Review chips in.
