Iowa is not Kansas

I need an editor.  I got Kansas and its Jayhawks mixed up with Iowa.

Anyway, here’s the link to my article on Cruz, ethanol, and New Hampshire in the American Thinker.

Some of the commenters doubt that ethanol is that big a deal.  I think it is in New Hampshire, because it’s widely understood to exist only  because Iowa selfishly uses its caucuses to force it on every one else.  It’s not only a text book example of crony capitalism, it’s a direct result of Iowa horning in on New Hampshire’s traditional role as the first-in-the-nation primary.

So there the Ethanol Gambit sits, atop the AT flagpole.  Someone at a Super-pac supporting Cruz will see it.  They might blow it off, or they might salute.

We’ll just wait and see.

Trump, God love him, is not letting up on Billy Jeff.  It’s odd, isn’t it, that this very unusual man has elevated himself to the highest tier of American politics, and uses his position to do and say things that have been undone and unsaid for far too long?  He’s unique.

He’s a national treasure.
