    I read Carson was going home to get fresh clothes. He's done.

    There were reports of Carson ending his candidacy last night, which his campaign has denied. While I really like Carson, I think he will quit after South Carolina. I think after last night, the Republican race is a 3 man race now: Cruz, Rubio, Trump. The others really should just bow out now.

    I don't agree. Iowa is irrelevant IMO.

    It's still going to be a 3 man race. Ok one man, a man child, and a small child.

    The other candidates never had a chance.

    No, Iowa helps determine who will not win the republican nomination. Like Huckabee and Santorum, Cruz is the big winner, I mean loser in this case.

    It usually helps to have a fresh pair of pants after crapping them.

    Since Carson is a doctor, what has he said about the future helium supply issue, since as a doctor and probably deals with CT and MRI machines, he should have an inkling about what makes them operate. With 30 years of helium left, maybe he'll want to ban kiddies putting balloons floating in the sky and conserve the stuff for more pro-life issues - he is pro-life, isn't he?? Or does he think helium grows on trees and is collected in outer space by the USS Enterprise since helium is everywhere despite being impossible to capture in space right now...

    Interesting development.

    This was sent out before the Iowa Caucus started.

    You should see Trump's whinge whine rant tweet from this morning. Sounds like he can't stand being Trumped. ;)

    Or as everyone else in the world calls it, sore loser.

    That's sleazy as hell.


    Edit: Actually I take that back, if it was being reported by the press prior to this they were really just letting people know. It's probably true anyway.

    This is outright voter fraud and the authorities should be announcing that they are conducting a criminal investigation of the Cruz campaign.

    It's only voter fraud if you're looking for things to be fair, which they haven't been in decades. If you hate Trump, then no it's not fraud, he's just whining. Pick your poison.

    Trump did not even attend the debate and still managed second.

    I despise them both but that's totally irrelevant. We do not prosecute people because we do not like them or look the other way because we do like them, the litmus test is whether or not they broke the law.

    I'm no fan of Ted Cruz - but no. That wasn't fraud. And it wasn't the reason Cruz won the Iowa Caucuses. Carson actually outperformed his pre-caucus polls. So it seems unlikely that a bunch of would-be Carson voters switched over to Cruz.

    The only person who underperformed his polls was Donald Trump. Which probably isn't surprising, given his decision to skip the Fox News debate and his pitiful ground game in Iowa.

    If the Cruz campaign willfully and intentionally misled voters, it is voter fraud plain and simple. The outcome of the election is irrelevant.

    Telling lies isn't voter fraud. (If it was, I think 99% of politicians would be in prison.) And while ted Cruz has played fast and loose with the truth on numerous occasions - his Tweet about Carson "taking some time off" doesn't come close to the level of an actual lie.

    I'm not referring to any tweets, there were reports that Cruz campaign staff were telling voters during the caucus that Carson had already suspended his campaign and they should vote for Cruz instead.
