A Few Thoughts From Your Alien Overlord

Greetings puny Earthlings.

Remulak MoxArgon, Ruler of the Known Universe, and your future conqueror here, rested a ready to take a look at this New Year of yours.

Before I do, I'd like to thank the ghost of General Napier for filling for us during our rather extended inebriation celebrations.

Well, let's get to business.

Huckabee won/Hillary lost in Iowa.

Now this does not bode well for either of them. Allow me to explain.

The Iowa Caucuses are deceptively small groups making very big decisions according to arcane rules. They are often easily swayed by the loudest and pushiest people, and these tactics don't translate well to the more transparent and democratic primaries.

This means that Huckabee won't be able to bring in the church groups to swamp the other votes.

It also means that more attention will be paid to Huckabee's past as governor of Arkansas, his penchant for treating government property as his own, and his never-ending desire for more and more money. Even the media, which has been hyping Huckabee as a sacrificial lamb for the Democrats, won't be able to ignore it.

The more you learn about Huckabee the more he looks like a huckster.

Plus, Iowa and New Hampshire are rarely the bellwethers the pundits and campaign strategists like to think they are.

As for Hillary.

Well, Iowa's small voting groups and arcane caucus rules should have made it easy for her. Transparency and open democracy is her enemy, preferring to dominate the party through dominating its purse-strings.

By losing (3rd place against 2 empty suits) what was supposed to be an easy race Hillary loses her only qualification for the nomination.

Her inevitability.

Ever since her husband left the White House and she ran for the Senate she has traded on one thing, that she was the inevitable heir to the Democratic nomination and that gave her control over what really matters to the Democrats, big donors and celebrity endorsements.

Now those donations and endorsements are going to Barack Obama, the only person less qualified than Hillary for the Presidency.

Like I said, it does not bode well.

All of these socialist swine. The only candidate worth a rats patootie is FRED! Since, of course, your Highness isn't in the race. NONE of the demoncrap scum is worth the piss to put them out.
