Just what is the deal with Iowa anyway? Why is this state producing such liberal nitwits as Harkin and supporting candidates like Obama? This is the same state that has a respected Republican Governor, a Republican US Senator and went for George W. Bush in 2004. What is the appeal to Iowans of Obama, liberal Democrats and their agenda? Are most Iowans on welfare, food stamps or just stupid? It's not like there are all these urban liberals infesting the state, so why does it go blue so often? Answers please!
