You Really Ought to give Iowa a try

David Dickinson

Politico's New York City Hall bureau chief, a woman named Sally Goldenberg, had this to say as she followed her hapless mayor around Iowa on Saturday. Note, this is not a joke, this is real:

"Observations from Iowa – it is very flat, driving is monotonous, there is more unbuilt land in one block than NYC has in an entire borough, dirt roads are terrifying, no one carries almond milk and caucus-goers are extremely well-informed. I will never be so happy to step onto a subway again."

My observations: When some Babe From Brooklyn says that you, a person in flyover country, are "extremely well-informed," she means she's shocked that you aren't a knuckle-dragging idiot like she and all her friends have always thought you were. Plus, what kind of person would prefer a ride in a filthy New York City subway car to driving in a real car on open roads with minimal traffic, even if some of those roads are - *gasp* - dirt?

Them there city slicker media types are not going to be caught unaware in 2020 like they were in 2016, they are going to rub elbows with one or two hicks in Yuckville to put their finger on the pulse of the nation, yes sir.


What an arrogant snot! Oh, and I've traveled a  a bit of south east Iowa and never encountered any dirt roads. A few gravel, maybe, but not dirt. Won't hold up farm equipment.

Also, I don't know about the whole state, but eastern Iowa isn't flat but rather has low rolling hills, and is quite beautiful. It would be a wonderful place to grow up. Too bad this snob didn't have an upbringing outside of the cesspool she has always inhabited.

Iowans are not amused. See here too.
