While I’m reluctant to impose my preferences on Republicans in Iowa, I’d like to propose two new rules for the Ames straw poll.
1. Any candidate who finishes behind John Cox must drop out.
2. Any candidate who does not participate in the straw poll yet finishes ahead of at least one candidate who does deserves, at least, props.
I’ll allow “props” to be defined by the people of Iowa, good federalist that I am.
