Hillary Clinton and Ted Cruz

Will one of these two be our next president? Hoping not but American delegates have a unique talent for picking what they think Americans want without considering what’s best for America.

With the Iowa caucus now complete and  Hillary Clinton (D) and Ted Cruz (R) declared winners, it’s now time to call out the problems this creates.  First, however, I would like to congratulate Iowa delegates on their decision to let Ted Cruz win this one instead of picking that bumbling idiot Trump.  Hillary over Sanders (although just about even) may not be your finest moment, but Trump would prove to be a major mistake for American voters.  Well, Hillary will, too, but that’s a longer story.

Some things you just can’t make up…

Not to be deterred my wife added, “I know who you are, we’re not interested.”

Without missing a beat the lady outside said, “oh, I didn’t want you to think we’re Mormons.”  And then she went on her way.
