Iowa Predictions Thread

Today is the day when our quadrennial nightmare ends and Iowans can go back to doing what they do best...providing the rest of us with pork products and corn.

Here's the thumbnail version of how this works: After a year of being alternatively sucked up to and badgered by every GOP wannabe, Iowa voters go to fire houses, schools and community centers to tell us who may continue to run. Following that, the rest of us bitch about it and then turn our annoyance to New Hampshire and their primary next Tuesday.

I may have cut out a few details but that's the gist.

So...get your predictions in now and be eligible for fabulous prizes* if you correctly predict the order and percentage of the field in the final results.

Also he's my position on the post-Iowa landscape: If either Perry or Newt (my guy) come in 3rd or better, supporters of the other candidate should really give the 3rd place finisher a very, very serious look.

And no, there's no "but Ron Paul doesn't count so 4th is really 3rd" exception. If neither Newt or Perry get at least a top 3, resistance is futile, we will all be assimilated into the Romney Collective.

Also: Open thread.

*There are no prizes, fabulous or otherwise.
