Primary Season as NASCAR Season
For an Iowan, the nomination season is like the NASCAR season. Bear with me while I belabor an essentially meaningless point.
Biggest football game of the year? Well, yah. Super Bowl. End of the year.
Biggest baseball event of the year? World Series. Again, naturally, end of the year.
Biggest NASCAR race? The Daytona 500. Which is the FIRST race of the year.
That's what the nomination season is like for an Iowan. The big one is first then it's all downhill.
