Close Call at the Iowa Caucus for Sanders and Clinton

Like us on Facebook:

If you are anything like me, you were up ’til the late hours last night, hitting refresh buttons and switching channels like a hyper-caffeinated West Wing character in order to keep up with the results of the Iowa Caucus. The Iowa Caucus is the official start to the campaign season in the United States, and although it’s only one of fifty states (plus DC, come on, statehood!) that will hold their own primaries, the attention the media puts upon it makes it an important ‘setting of the stage’. Even though nobody really knows how it works except for Iowans, it’s always one of the most exciting events of the campaign season.

Last night, Hillary Clinton walked away with 49.9 of the Dem vote, while Bernie Sanders won over a (not so) shocking 49.6 of the vote. Martin O’Malley had a miserable turnout, and announced he was putting his campaign on hold. On the Republican side, Ted Cruz (a Canadian citizen) beat out Donald Trump.

Depending on which news outlet you’re choosing to pay attention to, the Democratic ticket either had a virtual tie or a clear cut winner in Clinton. With Bernie a mere .3 percentage points away, and leaving room for error or, say, coin tosses, his camp has every right to be as excited as they are. A no nonsense Democratic Socialist from Vermont- who knew? His supporters, apparently! Let’s hope that last night’s historic turnout means fair and deserved coverage for Mr. Sanders from the mainstream media. In the meantime, I’ll be keeping up plenty of balanced coverage… for my 438 Twitter followers.

Don’t blame vegans for the shame you feel about using animals

The shame Carly Lewis claims veganism casts over her is more likely the ghosts of moral uncertainty, spectres that are more likely fish than cows, wondering how morality can possibly be used as ammunition in favour of murder.
