I’m Back

I’M BACK….As always, a million thanks to Steve Benen for filling in for me while I was on vacation for the past week. He did his usual terrific job and I can’t thank him enough. If you’re not reading Steve regularly at his usual site, do yourself a favor and bookmark him at The Carpetbagger Report.

As for me, I’m back just in time for all the last minute ethanol pandering before the Iowa caucuses. Yummy! Regular blogging will resume momentarily.

UPDATE: And speaking of both Iowa and the Carpetbagger Report, one of Steve’s guest bloggers, a real live Iowan, has a post up this morning explaining the mechanics of how the Iowa caucuses work. If you’re still confused about this, click here for a nickel explanation.
