Iowa voters are attuned to the issues that matter most. God bless ‘Murica. The New York Times said Ted Cruz dealt Donald Trump a “humbling loss,” though no one expects The Donald to be humbled, and votes for the candidates above were thisclose.

As a matter of fact, I AM watching the debate tonight
What with Whatzisname won’t be front and center, I wonder if the other candidates will have time to talk about something more substantial. Pretty soon, the big baby is going to be frightened away from all journalists. You’re welcome. We’ll see.
In which Bro. Trump steps in it. Again.
The most popular Republican candidate for President has again embraced Robert Jeffress (more about him here) who responds with this tepid non-endorsement: “I don’t believe a Christian has to sell his soul to the devil to vote for Donald Trump.” Well, phew! I am going to rest easier knowing two lowest common denominators are friends. …
Just a bit more on Bro. Trump and 2 Corinthians
Leftover sends this, a thoughtful essay about Donald Trump’s pretending to know his Bible at a speech at Liberty University recently. (That’s Donald, seen with one of the Duck guys — Donald, who said this weekend he could shoot someone and still retain his backers. Liberty!)

One man’s response to Donald Trump
Monetize your dissent. And thank you, Mr. Miller. Yes, I watched the Republican debate last night, and showed my ass on both Facebook and Twitter. Afterward, I went to bed feeling strangely empty. Boiled down, we’re going to carpet bomb the desert, build a great wall, and we must understand that political correctness will kill …
On creating a database for dipshits…
In the latest of a series of really incredibly stupid, hurtful and — at best — ill-informed comments, Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump says he would “certainly implement” a database of all Muslims living in the U.S. How is this different from registering Jews in Nazi Germany? Trump couldn’t say. But this gives me an idea: What …
Upon your election today, good luck, Canada
And thanks, Glenda, for letting me steal this from you on Facebook. And here’s more on Canada’s election.
