the Ames Straw Poll

Lots of signs announcing events to follow.

Even a big bus announcing events to follow.

A candidate's tent going up.

And banners galore.

And bouncy games for this pro-family event.

AARP has the biggest tent for all of us now in the over-the-hill gang.

This space is called the "listening post" tent and here is the schedule of events.

Fox News!

And the peacock channel.

And the blessed Mid-South Tea Party trailer has finally arrived.

This was the coolest thing....a trailer loaded with just one blade of a wind turbine...signed, sealed, and delivered to the Ames Straw Poll.

Actually, this was the coolest thing over at the ISU Center....a dangling cluster of common baldcypress cones...Taxodium distichum.

God Bless America. The Republicans are here!
