Presidential Forum – After Party

On Saturday, May 16, 2015, I attended the Republican Party of Iowa’s Lincoln Dinner in Des Moines, where eleven Republican Presidential candidates spoke.

And then there was the After Party, where nine of those candidates held receptions — all next to each other.

For a political aficionado, it was like being a dog at a mailman convention.

Here is a short video of the scene:

There will be more coming from that day and event…

    It is oddly refreshing to see all these successful and powerful people, driven by ambition and constrained by constitution, displaying themselves to hog farmers in polo shirts who, like sailors window shopping in a red light district, are likewise promised maximum satisfaction.

    You mentioned dogs at a mailman convention. It starts out that way for most of us. We like to think of ourselves as wise, aloof and discerning.

    Looking in from the outside, we see this meat market as humiliating. Yet being inside that room with the candidates is a different experience. You may enter thinking you are going to bite a mailman but then you smell all that delicious cake. Heroin has nothing on this addiction.
