I have a fear of being intentionally left out of things, but Tulsi’s failure to invite yrmama out for froyo yesterday was probably not intentional. I just didn’t hear about it and am trying to believe no one is plotting “let’s do it, just don’t tell yrmama.” This is a slow week for Democratic candidates in Iowa City, but I guess not as slow as I thought. Representative Gabbard is from Hawaii, Hindu and running for president, can’t tell you much else. The photos make it look like about 40 people showed up.
Later yesterday afternoon my boy Pete Buttigieg made 1600 people appear at a junior high in DesMoines – an event they’d planned for about 50. When one of the little group of protesters that was following him around all day shouted something about “Sodom and Gomorrah” (because Pete is gay? idk. jk.) he waited until the crowd was done drowning out the yeller and said, “The good news, is the condition of my soul is in the hands of God, but the Iowa caucuses are up to you.”
