Iowa is in the center of the USA. I drove through the state in 2009 with Brock Dundee. He was shooting a film of the sculptor Barry Flannagan and part of the project consisted of VDOing the ailing artist's hare statues in their various settings around the world. One was in front of the Des Moines Art Museum. People walked by the work and Brock asked for their opinion. They all had something to say. This was America's Heartland and its citizens liked to be heard by folks in distant places.Most Americans have never visited Iowa and few could probably find it on a map, however the state will kick off the 2012 presidential campaign on January 3 with the famed Iowa caucuses. The standing president has no rivals contesting the Democratic nomination, while the GOP field for the White House consists of seven candidates; Michele Bachmann, Newt Gingrich, Jon Huntsman, Ron Paul, Rick Perry, Mitt Romney, and Rick Santorum; one Milf, one hypocrtite, two Mormons, and a cracker from Texas a complete asshole have dominated the debates to deny the only logical candidate ie Ron Paul airtime.America is a country of over 300,000,000 people and the Iowa caucuses give the Hawkeye State the chance to change the nation.Its population is 1% of the nation."Our liberties we prize and our rights we will maintain."Ah, Iowa.
