John Deeth Blog: Primarying Grassley? Naaah, just sending a message
Excerpted from this post at John Deeth Blog
Political junkies love fantasy scenarios, clashes of the titans. The
ultimate fantasy is the old-fashioned brokered presidential
convention, but we've all grown older and wiser and wistful and
realistic about that. Next on the list is The Killer Primary: donkeys
and elephants eating their own, with ostensible differences in policy
but really about interpersonal drama and raw power. We had the primary
of a lifetime last year and we're jonesing for more. So we turn to...
Iowa Republicans? The rumblings on the right about primarying Chuck
Grassley won't lead to a serious challenge, but they do shed some
interesting light on the state of the GOP in 2009.
