It’s a nice day here today, 72 with no clouds, so I am faced with the choice between picking through the flotsam and jetsam of Republican utterances in Iowa or I can go to the zoo (or ‘World Famous San Diego Zoo’ as all people in San Diego are contractually required to call it when speaking to Outlanders).

So, yeah, you’re on your own.

Maybe Walter Russell Mead will explain it all to you using his patented “intelligent filtering process” which I think is the same process used to make craft beer that tastes like warmed-over piss.
