*rolls eyes*

One of my brothers is a city administrator in a mid-sized town in north Iowa. As you may be aware, we are approaching critical mass on caucus season here in God's Country. So when several Obama flacks approached him for likely photo-op spots in his town, he offered up several possible venues, with each suggestion met with a "no, we need something more typically Iowa."

Finally, he said, "What is going to work for you? We don't have any murals of corn in town."

I told him, "Shit, you should have offered to pull a fucking tractor with a hay rack into the town square. He could give his speech from there. Then the whole town could break into dance and start singing 'The Farmer And The Cowman." Oops, wrong state.
