A Day at the Fair

Happier Days: Presidential Candidate Joe Lieberman waits in line for a funnel cake

THE BLUE RIBBON CAST OF CANDIDATES: Although the Iowa State Fair may be the second-largest state fair in the world (seriously: you suck, Texas), it's got more political action than the New Hampshire Primary!

Iowans who gather for the fair will see more than the butter cow and world's largest hog this year. They'll also be treated to some quality corn-on-the-cob time with folks used to pork-barrel spending.

According to Political Wire, New York Gov. George Pataki (R), Newt Gingrich (R), Iowa Gov. Tom Vilsack (D), John Edwards (D), Sen Joe Biden (D-DE), Sen. Evan Bayh (D-IN), Sen. John McCain (R-AZ), and Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist (R-TN) will all swing through the fair this weekend.

Past Fair politicos include President Bush ('02), former U.S. Sen. Bob Graham ('03), Howard Dean ('03), Senator Joe Lieberman ('03), former Massachusetts Gov. Michael Dukakis ('87), and U.S. Rep. Dick Gephardt ('88).

Kids, don't forget to eat your obligatory fat fried Twinkie on your way to Ye Olde Mill!

Nice pic Laura. I hear this year they introduced a "beef sundae": it's something like thick riblets covered in mashed potatoes and gravy, with a cherry tomato on top. It's like heaven on a plate.
First, let me report that my 27,000 calorie trip to the fair did the biggest boar proud.

Pataki did a very very good job both at the fair today and at a couple of Des Moines area events. Vilsack was there strolling around, contemplating pig shit tsardom and the low probability of success in a presidential run. He sounded silly next to Pataki.
Yeah sorry, totally not a politically related comment, but University related.
Figure there's a few students that check this blog and I could use it as an outlet.

So the University is shutting down the grass lot on riverside and myrtle, leaving 100's of tailgaters without a spot to tailgate.


If you disapprove feel free to delete this comment.

But alot of people are pissed about this and it makes for good news. Nothing like 100's of angry fans to storm a lot and take it back come 6:00am saturday morning!!
The Real Sporer stands in general opposition to anything that limits pregame and post victory partying at Iowa football games.

Bring on the Pig, Goophers-we're going 12-0 in '06 (technically 12-1 due to the Jan. 1 bowl game hosing we absorbed).

Well, hopefully Republican John Cox of Illinois, who threw his hat in the ring as a conservatice candidate for president was there as well. I understand he's been to Iowa three times already. Hopefully guys such as McCain, Hagel, Graham and other RINOs will be rejected by Iowa voters during the primary and the party will come up with a real conservative like John Cox.
