Is the the Iowa caucus or cockup? Bloomberg calls for 5 Trillion Dollars in new taxes. Coronavirus spread by farts? Facebook now old enough to drive. Shut up and take my money.

The much awaited Iowa caucuses are over, kinda’ and the winner is… no one knows. Are the problems just simple reporting issues, or a total meltdown of the entire system? No one is completely sure. But we do know that there are no actual results in sight. The candidates are pretty much all claiming victory and have already packed their bags for Vermont. Did someone say fiasco? I’m sure someone did somewhere. You gotta’ love it, Rolling Stone is calling it Dempacolypse. But I prefer the Iowa Cockup. If you predicted before the Iowa Caucus, that well, someone was going to win, boy I’ll bet you feel like a real idiot now. There’s some tin foil hat level shit goin’ on here folks.

Facebook is officially 16-years-old today. Of course back then, it was called ‘the facebook’ and only available to college students. Now with only two years left until facebook can head out on its own and attend college away from the Zuck, maybe we should demand Mark take away the keys and tell Facebook to go to it’s room.
