In Iowa every four years we reach the high point of our tourism quadrennial — the Caucuses. The world’s most dubious form of democracy other than straw polls, FCC complaints, and trending Bieber-tweets. And why here you ask?

Yeah, me too.

Herman Cain’s Iowa chairman, Steve Grubbs, said the POLITICO story about sexual harassment claims against Cain will only serve to motivate the campaign in the first-in-the-nation state.

“I bet we’ll land more precinct captains than we did before the story,” Grubbs told POLITICO Monday.

Ugh, the Republican-base in Iowa, Herman Cain’s constituency, as hands-on as the candidate that inspires them.
