Iowa GOP Tries to Brag about Divisive Primary
Ever hear the old joke about the lawyer who has to defend the guy who murdered his parents, and pleads for mercy from the jury because his client is an orphan? The latest Iowa GOP press release reminds me of that one.
After a high turnout primary so divisive that, a month later, the number two guy not only hasn't endorsed the winner but is still threatening to run third party, the press flacks are bragging about their registration numbers increasing.
That's like saying your store's business is up because so many people are coming through the front door, but half of them are lined up at the complaint counter. How many of those folks will be taking their business across the street, or not shopping at all, this fall?
