So I am in Iowa for a visit with in-laws.
On Monday, I’m going to the State Fair and there will youngsters is our party. I had assumed that the most inappropriate thing they might see would be in one of the livestock pavilions, but then I saw this report from the foreign press:
Driving away on a golf cart with her husband Marcus beside her, Mrs Bachmann stopped to buy a foot-long corn dog – a chicken and beef sausage in deep-fried batter. After applying mustard and allowing Mr Bachmann to take the first bite, she chomped into it with gusto.
The image is one of the creepiest political photos I’ve seen in a long time and so is Harnden’s description of the moment.
Kids have to grow up fast in our Galtian wonderland and it seems that an image to haunt their future is just around every corner–even at the State Fair.
And with that,how about an Open Thread.
