Back Roads to the White House: Be the Butter Cow

Excerpted from this post at Back Roads to the White House

Still wonder if former Sen. Fred Thompson is really going to get into
the Republican presidential race? Well then how do you explain his
visit to the Iowa State Fair on Friday? Maybe you think he really
craves a deep fried Snickers bar. Or, could it be that he wants some
of that Butter Cow/Harry Potter magic to rub off on him? It's true.
All serious presidential candidates must go to the Iowa State Fair,
although not all people who go to the Iowa State Fair are running for
president -- just most of them. We'll see what happens on Friday
afternoon, when Thompson takes his turn on the Des Moines Register's
state fair "soap box" stage -- actually a ring of hay bales.
