Primarily, we’re all screwed.

There were a few primaries last night — some ho-hum affairs that, in their own way, may have sealed the fate of the planet. By that, I mean that Donald Trump is way closer to putting his itty-bitty index finger on the red button that says “nuke” than anybody ought to be comfortable with.

Let’s look at the contests briefly, and then we can talk about where we go from here.

A Brief Wrap-Up Before Everyone Goes Back to Not Caring About Iowa

The Iowa caucuses were last Monday. Blueprint sent me down to Iowa to cover the event, to look for the story between the headlines.

Once every four years, the Hawkeye State gets to feel like the quiet kid in elementary school everyone forgot about until his parents got him a pair of sweet Ninja Turtle light-up shoes. Iowa is the first electoral event of the presidential election season.

The Iowho, Iowhat, Iowhen, Iowhere, and Iowhy of the Iowa Caucuses

Today, we’re going to go off the beaten path a little bit and discuss the campaign trail. As I’m sure most of you know, we’re on the verge of the Iowa Caucus. What you might not know is how the Iowa Caucus actually works. To be honest with you, I didn’t have a terribly clear idea myself before I started researching for this post (I’m a little ashamed to admit that most of my knowledge came from a classmate’s description of an episode of “The Good Wife”).
