I'm the guy in the BRIGHT Orange coat(boy do I look STUPID)!
Nice! You are officially famous now, haha.
On another note, I have a question about caucuses. I did not want to start a vanity, so I’ll try asking here...
I have tried reading through a description online, but I have a hard time understanding exactly how they (caucuses/caucui/whatever) work. Could you (or anyone) please explain, or link to an explanation, of how exactly it is that they work. If it just like an exclusive club voting or what? I know it differs from a ballot box election, but I’ve never been able to participate in one.
You look bigger on TV.
Well done US Navy Vet!
Oh, so that’s what a freeper looks like. Never saw one before. Hum.
Wahoo, freeper on the news. You did great!
Any registered voter can participate in a caucus. A voter attends the caucus for their district/township. Each voter is given one ballot, and the ballots are then collected at a certain point in the caucus. Ballots are counted and reported to the State Party. It’s a non-binding count of who people are leaning towards for President. Other party business is also conducted at the caucus, such as nominating delegates, party committee chairmen, etc.
Say hi to my Mom and brother if you ever run into them.
At least you’re not in an orange jump suit.
You don't look stupid.. a little tranny maybe, but not stupid.
You won’t be mistaken for a deer.
Ah, thank you very much. Another question, if I may:
“Each voter is given one ballot, and the ballots are then collected at a certain point in the caucus.”
Is this why the angry, rowdy supporters do well in caucuses? Is it because they try and drive out everyone else out before the ballots are passed out, until only they remain?
The bright orange coat was a good choice. No one will notice your red neck next to it...
I don’t personally know anyone from Iowa and I would like to ask for your vote for Newt Gingrich, it’s important, Newt and I as well as our grandchildren would appreciate it.
Now that is cool...should have gave a shout out to FR...lol.
Its basically a group discussion...one group per candidate. each group nominates a spokesperson and that spokesperson tries to convince members of opposing groups to change groups. This is how I remember it anyway.
You don’t look stupid at all. In fact, you look very confident sitting there... Good for you. You’ve done us proud!
That is hysterical!!
You don’t have a mirror? That’s horrible, we should all take up a collection for you!
