Hey, I have a Patreon account! https://www.patreon.com/MoeLane?ty=h

Just put up my latest short-short story and campaign world update for the month for it, too. Patrons only, alas: but you can join, and check it all out! At the moment I do a weekly 100 word short-short-short and monthly 1,000 word short-short stories and campaign settings in 500-700 word blocks. And if I start getting more Patrons and more pledges, I start writing more stuff.

So check it out.

One more day!

And then comes the fascinating instant evolution (work with me, here) of Iowa from being the epicenter of the American political universe to a Midwestern state with a population of 3.1 million. I’ve seen it happen with political eyes for… I guess 2016 will be my fourth time… and it’s always amazing how quickly everything shifts. I’ve seen slower state changes from emergency cutoff switches.

As to the results? Well, I’m still mulling over my What To Look For On Caucus Night post. Or even to do one; I mean, everybody else will, and everybody else will be probably guessing, too. Besides, you all already know what to look for.

My RedState post on more Democratic debates.

Found here. Short version… as political theater goes, the Democratic debate negotiations are incredibly dull and boring. Which makes them funny! …If you have a particular sense of humor.

Tweet of the Day, This Blue-on-Blue #Berniebro Fight Shows How The Sausage Is Made edition.

The underlying story is irrelevant, from our point of view. What is relevant is how the story proceeded. At some point, it somehow became legitimate journalism:

…and possibly even “fake but accurate.” Ach, but this Fallen world we live in!

MY PJ Lifestyle post on crafting in video games.

Found here.  Short version: do you have OCD? Then either do, or do not, play most modern computer RPGs. Because they’ll love to cater to that with their crafting minigames.

Liz Cheney running for Wyoming At-Large seat.

Incumbent Cynthia Lummis is retiring and the seat is R+22, mostly because it’s also the state of Wyoming and Wyoming is deep, deep, deep Republican territory. Judging from this, Liz Cheney has a decent if not guaranteed shot at the nomination; and she won’t be hurt by the fact that it’s her father’s old seat. As to the general… the last Democratic Congressman from Wyoming retired in 1978*.  So, again, it’s a pretty safe seat.

Should be an interesting primary race. Especially when the antiwar Left notices that she’s running. They’re gonna go nuts

My RedState post on the sans-Trump Fox News ratings.

Found here. Short version: actually, the absence of Trump didn’t have a horrible effect on the debate ratings. Fox News dropping 2.3 million potential viewers a month from FN debate to FN debate is not drastically different than CNN dropping 1.67 million potential viewers a month from CNN debate to CNN debate.

Good news for Donald Trump in the DMR poll.

Trump has 28% to Cruz’s 23%, with Rubio at 15% and Carson at 10%. This is one of the solid pollsters, so historically Trump’s looking in good shape to win Monday. Guess we’ll see.
