How The Iowa Caucuses Work in Legos

Iowa Caucuses: For weeks you have been hearing ENDLESSLY about them , but how exactly do they work? Glad you asked.

This video about the Iowa caucuses comes courtesy of Vermont Public Radio.

Please note that what they are describing, probably not surprising, given that it is a public TV station from Vermont, is how the democrats caucus. The Republicans have a simple secret ballot, which they drop in a ballot box and go home. I don’t think it’s a coincidence that the two parties participate in this event so differently. Republicans are probably tired after a Monday back at work, whereas the democrats, many of whom are on government assistance, sleep until noon, watch “Ellen” and “Judge Judy,” and take a nap. So they are fully-energized for several hours listening to political operatives repeat lame talking points.
