Based on the results I have heard, a tie between Romney and Santorum, the Iowa caucuses appear to be an enormous waste of time. If they contribute anything to the Presidential election, it just shows how broken our electoral system is. Part of the problem is due to the Supreme Court’s Citizens United decision, basically making it legal for rich people to buy an election. And part of the problem appears to be that the Republican Party is dysfunctional, offering such lousy candidates, and that Republicans in Iowa are idiots, turning out to vote for such incompetents. Poor America!
