Blog for Iowa: Leach Campaign "Tradition" an Insult

Excerpted from this post at Blog for Iowa

The 2006 political season is upon us, impelling me to write yet another petition to Rep. James Leach, R-Iowa, to cease his campaign "tradition" of handing out faux Indian headdresses.

Four years ago, I wrote to the papers about this and was pleasantly surprised to note the absence of headdresses at Iowa City and Coralville parades. While biking through the Iowa countryside, however, I came across a parade in Lone Tree.

There, the Leach cadets were passing out the paper feathers, all in the spirit of "having a good time."
