This is my site. Cool, huh? If you don't like it, well, I guess it lives up to its name for you, then.

So, Iowa is over. Romney came in second to Huckabee -- I know I didn't see that coming. The interesting thing, I think, is the dominance of Obama. I've seen references to both Huckabee and Edwards as being HueyLongish, but really Obama seems more like that to me. The whole, speaking truth to power, all while milking the powers that be for all they're worth, pretty much sums up Long. But what do I know?

Anyway, this just makes me think of Greenspun's take on Obama. Of course, Greenspun later on went on to predict an Obama victory and some effects following it. And it wouldn't surprise me a bit if it all happens exactly like he says.
