Iowatch Yourself

Iowa’s Summer of Love Partisanship

Things may seem pretty tame if you’re in a solidly blue or red state. But in battleground venues like Iowa, this is turning out to be anything but a summer of love. Maybe it’s just the extreme anxiety caused by the watching, against one’s will, of endless hours of campaign ads.

Where is Mark Burnett on this one? The battleground partisan story definitely has the makings of a solid reality show.

Reminder: I’m posting from Florence and the hills of Tuscany (which in itself should make you question my judgment). Normal schedule returns on Monday.

Concentration is important!
