Iowa Insults

Is this any way to run a campaign?

Gov. Scott walker's new digital media  manager Liz Mair was tweeting insults at Iowans.

Referring to Congressman Steve King's Freedom summit she tweeted, “In other news, I see Iowa is once again embarrassing itself, and the GOP, this morning. Thanks, guys.”Mair added: “The sooner we remove Iowa’s frontrunning status, the better off American politics and policy will be.”

Governor Walker, when are you issuing your apology? (Well, I guess you sort of did by firing her one day after hiring, er um sorry, she "resigned one day later. Now I guess some GOP candidate who won't compete in Iowa can hire her and take advantage of her anti-Iowa position.

Then Ken Langone, one of Chris Christie's most prominent and richest supporters, was just quoted in a WSJ story saying the Iowa caucus system is tantamount to letting a bunch of little old ladies pick a president.

I was asked by a reporter how Iowan's would feel about this insult.

I think Iowans probably feel the same way about being called little old ladies as Chris Christie feels when people call him "just a New Jersey Porky Pig" or a "Hothead Joisey Governor with a collapsing economy."

We love little old ladies in Iowa.

They are much more polite than Christie.

All out aunts and grandmothers are little old ladies.

They vote a lot more than other voters.

They balance their budgets better than lawyer governors.

Christie is welcome to come and have some marshmallow jello and a crock pot Iowa beef stew with little old ladies and try to talk them into supporting him on caucus night!

Governor Christie, when are you issuing your apology to the hard working, politically engaged caucus voters of Iowa?

Iowans are very polite people who don't call names. We listen and work hard to do the right thing especially in election years.

If your candidate can't connect with Iowa voters (little old ladies or others!) then he can't connect with voters in New Hampshire, South Carolina or anywhere else.

Stuff that in your campaign organization hat.
